Yup... Yet another from the KW area of Ontario Canada... Was a big armour modeler years ago before kids, now looking at jumping right into 1/6 scale RC tanks... @Whee!

How did you come across our little band?

I was hunting for 1/6 th scale RC Tanks for sale and came across a webpage (which is horribly out of date) and then logged in here! I'm seriously considering plunking down the $$$ for an Armortek... They are sooooooo nice looking...

Yes, they are but our main scale is 1/16 so that most of us can collect several tanks considering the Armortek's and FOA's are north of $2500 by the time you fully kit them.  But you are more than welcome to come play around of course! :-)

Well I did it.... Bypassed 1/16th scale and went right for the wallet's jugular...



Armortek's newest... The Panther-A...



I'm either a glutton for engineering or a complete idiot...

From the UK. Direct from Armortek.

Was emailing Gill Watkins back and forth for the last week with a whole bunch of stupid questions (I assume they would be to him anyways).

I'd consider something that large only if..

a. I had another shed to store it in
b. under $1000 (lol)
3. A garage to work on it
d. Proper machine shop
5. $$$

Well I did finish paying off the mortgage this past December... If you think about it, from what I have seen of 1/16th scales, $500-1000 per isn't uncommon with all the upgrades put on. So instead of 10-15 1/16 scale AFV's, I decided on 1, bigger, heavier, "HELL YA!" scale...
