I have abandoned my previous Leopard C1 due to a weak suspension and crappy turret ring (shame shame shame). This tank is very dear to me as I gave commanding the real thing up for a career in firefighting.

In an effort to stimulate my rc tank juices, I have opted to sell off some of my unused tanks and electronics and redirect the funds to a new Tamiya Leopard 1A4 kit.



Delivered to the door price = $400 CAN

I'll be using the SLU electronics and Tactic receiver.

The old Leopard C1 will be sold off as a stand alone model.




I am currently at $295 towards my goal. More to come.

Forgot to ask, how much is involved in making it into a C1?

......and, once it is ordered and is delivered, will we get a build thread Wink

I was going to put it on EBay, but I would let it go to a club member for $100.

And yes a build thread is coming?

BTW, the "Help Tim buy a New Leopard 1A4" fund is now up to $365. Only $35 more to go.

Now if I can just sell the old Leopard.

Tim, when you say the the old Leopard is a "stand alone" model are you saying it's a static model or ??? Still R/C ? Any electronics? Radio? yadda yadda yadda...

Its the gutted version of the Leopard 1a4. No electronics or motors, but all the mounting points for them. I have all the motors and electronics to make it work.

There's nothing more exciting as getting a big box full of parts and making some thing with it! Very Happy
