ModelXu T55 Chassis

Feel free to discuss anything and everything to do with tanking here!

Postby Xiaoshan_Sailor » Mon Feb 22, 2021 3:04 am

For the T55 fan who has everything & wants even more here is a custom project for an owner of the Hooben kit who wanted something more substantial than their stock plastic chassis. Photos show current progress but was told this will be offered with full suspension including sprockets, wheels & track, And yes, that lower hull is milled from a block of aluminum. :O

Xu will offer it as a commission build on his Taobao store once work its complete. No idea as to cost but as that old saying goes, if you have to ask the price, you probably couldn't afford it. Will post more details & photos once finished.

congratulations for the beautiful work. With this hull a toy becomes a model. After all, modelXu is the same one who makes the splendid Jagdtiger Full metal ...

Yes, he does exquisite work. Besides his 1/16 JT, he also offers a King Tiger, Panther F & G, Jagdpanther plus small parts. Typically works on a 6 month turnaround but well worth the wait.

Here's his Taobao shop to see his full line. Prices shown for his kits reflect required deposit, typically 50% now, balance due upon completion.

On my phone, using Chrome I just ask it to translate. It's actually asking for email and password. It's the log in screen.

Silversurfer1947 is correct - Google's Chrome browser can be your friend. Thats how I navigate & purchase on a daily basis on Taobao.

The link is worthless.
I don't want to distribute my email everywhere.
Please can you take some screenshots of the shop?

Here you go. Doesn't cover all he offers but am will give you an idea. His closeup photos I see on WeChat can be breathtaking... I dare say almost up there with the finest German craftasmanship. 8)
