That looks like a nice series. We've had the odd RC car partwork in the UK in the past. Usually a nice easy build ;)

Have to yes straight forward build.

Unless you drill holes in the chassis to lighten it, or put go faster stripes on it as well!

Hi chill! And does it make sense to lose weight chassis? After all, it will reduce the adhesion to the ground.

Hi Mark!
And what is there to build? 2 nuts, 2 clips, 3 strips. I've spent on rebuilding it exactly 7 minutes.

i don't normally do this stuff but I could well be tempted. Any chance this will come to the UK?

DeAg have already done 2 RC cars in the UK, one electric and one nitro, and Hachette have also done a nitro monster truck and BMW. You might have missed the boat, so to speak.

By the way, did you continue with the T-Rex model that was released a while ago ? Not really my cup of tea, but I was hoping somebody might post some photos of the build.

I decided not to build the T-Rex. Due to a remarkable lack of sales my newsies supplier decided not to supply it. And as I don't go for subscription service... Just got the first and second issues put together and gathering dust!

It looked like it was aimed at kids rather than being a proper model. Still, I'm sure it's an impressive toy when finished.

Not so terribly long.

Likely Mercedes DeAgostini release has upset Hachette. In the answer release of three models begins -
P-51 1:8 RC
Image
BMW 1:10 RC
Image
And the Tiger which you now build.

What to do? A nightmare!

What a choice ? The Tiger Tank is turning out to be a good model. That would be my choice from the 3, but each to their own.
