I heard the new IMEX 1/72 ones are pretty cool. VsTank if you want 1/24 which is still pretty big.

Well what a coincidence . I have been looking at my collection for a while trying to decide what to do with it. I have a total of 14 VS IR tanks that I have held on to because I just love the detail of each one.There are T72's ,Shermans,Tigers, KV's  plus a variety of others ,in addition I also have several IR exploding amo dumps to make the battle challenging.
I'll take some photo's and post them in the next day or so.
PM me if your are interested and a we can set a time to view them

14 ! I didn't think they made that many Ed........... We definitely need another fleet picture of the 1/24 scales then.

I have 3 of the 1/72 VS tanks, a Sherman, Tiger and T-34. They are a fun novelty I picked up to play with my kids. 

They drive pretty good, but the range isn't very good and it has to be a clear line of view.  They are IR, the receiver in the tank, but the emitter is in the hand controller. So you shoot at another tank by just pointing the controller at it. Rolling Eyes

They are fun to putz around with but the 1/24 are better if you look smaller IR battles. I believe you can get them as airsoft too

Thanks that's what I kinda wanted to know so has nothing with the tank it's the controller kinda silly. I am trying to get a friend into the hobby but as you all know the 1:16 is pricy

All but one are all IR as is the amo dump. The one exception is a Tiger which is equipped with a barrel flash. And yes they are 1/24 scale which are just right for indoor battles and outdoors on hard surface.
Some years ago this was the video that got me interested in this smaller scale

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z9_r8vtS40I

Of course there are many more you tube  videos.

They work best on hard surfaces which is why the 1/16 scale is best for outdoor terrain.
