Hi boys,

Saw Ian's Century 21 1/18 M48A3 in the flesh at the last tank meet and was pleasantly surprised at the size and since Dean has been collecting M26s by the dozens I bought one from him and decided to give it a go at converting it to RC. I know it has been done before, but I believe they all retained the original chassis which does not have working suspension. Mine will use the M26 lower as a base so it has full HL suspension and also HL compatible plastic tracks. It could also use metal tracks/sprockets/wheels as it is simply a mod HL Pershing lower with the gearbox raised for the M48 look.

I have to replace the solid barrel with similar size brass tubing but keeping the fume extractor and the muzzle brake. Put in a servo recoil, as well as HL rotation and elevation unit, an LED into the spotlight, add in front and back light. Have not decided where to put the IR emitter yet, but has a mount for HL apple and is ready to roll !
