Awesome news. They will use probably Trumpeter moulds like with M16 Halftrack.

Sure they are...now that I decided to convert a Trumpeter kit... The 35rctank kit will probably be superior to the Torro conversion anyway.

I doubt about this.
Trumpeter kit is made of injection moulded polystyrene.
Anything made of ABS will simply be better.

They just need to do this simple thing and it will be a better RC model.

Even if the model has shortcomings, it will be a sales hit, because every fan of German equipment wants to have the iconic Sdkfz 251 in addition to the Tiger. ;)

I have the Torro MRAPs, the GPA, and the M16. The GPA is the only one I've never had issues with, but I think that's because I've only had it out running in the dirt one time. It's the Torro electronics they keep using in all their stuff that is the problem.
