Hi All!
Baz (Barrie ) from Perth Western Australia.
Looks like a great site !!!
My first RC tank was in 1982. Fast forward 36 years ( 2019) & I found that old Patton Tank in my shed & decided to fix it up. Then I discovered 1/16 scale tanks & bought a few to fix up..................

It wasn't anything you did. Sometimes pictures get revolved for no apparent reason, quite weird.

:D ...."Bought a few to fix up..." ah,another master of understatement. :D No doubt, many here have shelves populated in the same way. Sometimes, it's a shock to realise just how many there are- Almost like Nelson, when he said: 'I see no ships!'. 8O
It's the :think: ..'Well,perhaps another one wouldn't hurt.." syndrome.
Welcome, Baz! WE have just the perfect madhouse for you here. :crazy:
The inmates will approve of your collection :thumbup:
