There's no urgency here, I will not be doing anything on this until at least the fall but speculating on and shopping for the next one is part of the fun.

It will be an HL of some sort, SLU equipped.

So far;

1.) Panther G (yeah, I just did one), want to see how the present one does this season and I would need to find some interesting east front camo; tougher than it would seem, to find good data on late 1944, 1945 camo.

2.) Tiger I (not ANOTHER Tiger Shocked ) this one would be in the distinctive Abt 506 markings and would need some "dress up parts", like turret track hangers. The big cat is easy to fit an SLU into.

3.) Pershing, done up in the markings of one of the U.S. Korean War units, concerned that it may be a tight fit for the SLU, I understand they will fit but sometimes my patience is in short supply. (Drawback, these are very green Laughing )

4.) Jadgpanther, either refit my airsoft Jagd into IR or pick up a new one, like the late Panther G's, good late war camo details are hard to find.

5.) Stug III F8, may look at my Stug to see if I want to even contemplate putting an SLU in it (the patience thing, again)




Mato is currently out of Tiger I's and Pershings according to their web site, as of May 2012.

Greg, have you looked into the Soviet SU-76 series of self propelled guns. Would be a nice addition to your T-34 and KV.

Hey Glen, I think you should stick with the big cats.

Apparently when you ask questions about Pershings, people start fighting! Rolling Eyes

you could always go with a T-34 major overhaul re-enforce the hull afer you gut it fit metal gearboxes rebuild a Drive sprocket to fit an HL centre piece to go on an HL driveshaft

it's fun ...lol

Wow, you can sure feel the love on that site Laughing

UPDATE: May 23rd, looks like the real nasty stuff got "flushed" from my thread on the "other forum"

Yeah, I do like my cats, especially the Tiger I's, I like the way they run, once I have done the modifications on them; I think they may be my best "runners"

It got the wires figured out I just have to tape everything down. Aswell I'm waiting on my 400 and steel gearboxes from RCTankWars. Then it'll be up and running and the Abrams will be on my to do list Razz

Good luck with it.

I have been spoiled working on Tiger I's and the II, lots of room.

Even on the Panther, you have to be a bit more careful with the interior space.

Greg that would be a great tank to scrach build, if I had time I would try it too.

Hay Glen a purshing would be a good battle tank, lots of room for the SLU and we would have almost a full team of them, and they dont flip on their side during battles.....Sad ..sherman...

Hay you can ask for some info on RCU Razz ..man some people are just jerks and then go whining to the mods to delete some posts..big babys..Mad ..

Well everything is taped down I'm just waiting on the gearboxes and I'm ready to roll.... scuse the pun.

And dont get me into another tank... I was thinking all three mentioned. Pershing, Tiger or KT. With the Abrams on its way judging from Wayne's Leo it'd have a load of room for stuff.

I may change my mind a dozen times between now and the fall but right now I am leaning towards a HL Pershing, outfitted with an SLU, done up in Korean War markings.

(At the last meet, I think you guys were getting ready to have a "panzer intervention" done on me , maybe its working Laughing )

Right now, the Tiger I would be the close rival. It would be different looking than my other "cats" with the distinctive Abt 506 1943 look; yellow with light sprayed brown stripes, distinctive marking on the turret bin, track link holders on the turret, etc.

The Pershing would bring back some odd memories to someone of my age group. In the late 1950's/early 60's we had all kinds of green "army toys", this would be just a big upgrade. Smile

Thanks, Wayne for emailing me some internal pictures of the SLU squeezed into an HL M26



All of this will have to wait, if for no other reason, Mato lists both the M26 and Tiger I as out of stock, fortunately, I'm not in a hurry.

For general interest, I have added some pitures of Abt 506 Tiger I camo and turret bin markings to the Gallery under Axis Tanks

Yeah, I don't know how well I'd do on that one.

I'm no Pershing expert but I think I have read some disputes as to whether the M26's actually had those markings, I think they may have been on Shermans in Operation Ripper, in Korea.

It would be nice if the M26 had those markings, though.

I guess when it comes down to a final choice, as I mentioned, tank and SLU availability at the time may be a factor; fortunately, I like both tanks.

The majority of those tiger stripes were found on the M46 Pattons. There's an idea Glen do a M46! Then you can have your Tiger and something different then all the Pershings we have already Razz
