Hello Ladies and Gents!
I;ve had a HL Tiger 1 fro a couple years but recently I got a Sherman and T-34(both HLs). I'm working on a backyard track/trail and keeping an eye out for open fields. The T34 is all plastic (w/ steel gearbox!) so I will soon be adding metal track and wheels.
For the Sherman, I am eyeing a 76mm Taigen turret. The other mode I am looking at is the barrel recoil & flash/smoke unit. Any info about those is appreciated
I am open to any tips, tricks and recommendations (that fall within the budget).
Any local peeps DM me for a tank talk or a play date(LOL).

Hi there! I am here in the freezeville, but lived in LA '80 to '84; I wished then that I could live in San Diego instead. Maybe you could run your tanks at the San Diego Wild Animal Park: I recall two lions who had a discussion (minimal blood) over a lioness. They were just about 6 feet on the other side of the fence from me. :O I'd be they would be willing to duke it out with tanks. :lolno:

There are a few Southern Californians here on RCTW, including SoCalBob. :)

Welcome! I went to the Navy’s School of Health Sciences at Balboa Hospital back in 1982. Loved Balboa park, C Street and Westport Village. Being a Hospital Corpsman was awesome! Best weather in the world.

Welcome, HK. It appears that you've already set some goals for yourself. :thumbup: Knowing what you want, helps to keep the bills down later (e.g., don't start off with a Tiger 1, like most do, when what you really want is a fire-breathing Sherman 76mm... :D )
Here's an example:

The Heng Long electronic bits needed are available over here, https://www.forgebeartanks.com/store/p1 ... _Tank.html
but you must be able to get them in the States as well.
