Hi guys, i bought the tamiya rc king tiger. But its using the production turret. Is it possible to convert to porsche turret heng long parts? I read that it is possible to use the 1/16 tamiya 1/16 static porsche king tiger. Unfortunately, the kit is just way too expensive.

So inam thinking of using heng long turret, find a way to mount it on the tamiya hull and fit the elevation and recoil unit inside. Get the metal turret ring protector from ludwig. Already ordered 2 x 128mm l/66 barrels from modellbau.

Do you think its possible?

It is possible. Ive combined Tamiya King Tiger lower hulls with Heng Long upper hull and a Matorro upper hull in two builds. I've a spare Porsche king Tiger turret from Tamiya in my shop if you need one. It doesn't have any electronic bits or gun. It's from an old Tamiya King Tiger upper.

Remember the Porsche king tiger upper hull is slightly different with the armoured turret ring bit, so you need an upper hull and turret. Good news is the HL upper and turret fits well
