Built a simple speaker box. It doesnt seal perfectly but it's a start.

The Pan Tiger rates its own thread Wink , which it had, started in Feb. 2013.

Since this is Strato's build thread, I suggest future Pan Tiger Discussion be done here;

Anyhoo guys, again I'm happy with my second Clark board. The recoil is simple yet smooth, I just used some 1/16 wire and pliers to bend it into Z shapes. Robust and won't come loose unless I want it to!

I'll try to post a video tomorrow showing it off.

The sound isn't as intense as my kv2, but that had a full tamiya speaker box. It'll be ready to battle next weekend.

Ok that does look pretty sweet for an AMERICAN tank........Is it the HL Kit? And if so does the gun recoil or the whole tank?

It's actually Canadian Sherman manufactured in the US :p

Ty Greg I can't rotate pictures on my phone, currently at work lol.

It's actually the Mato M4A1 kit with a Clark receiver and servo recoil & elevation. I made no modifications but it's custom paint and all the extra deck items are from the 21st century Sherman 1/18 tanks.

Clark board has separate optional IR function for machine gun... its not the MAIN GUN function but on other Clark boards, you are able to hear the MG bullets bounce off... more for fun than anything, hehe.

Thats why you see the IR light during MG fire!

Hehe maybe Razz

You can program the Clark to be a 'light' vehicle, like a half track or armored car, then the MG can damage it. Armored vehicles don't take MG damage, just the ricochet sound effect.

Yes theoretically. The only problem is that non-clark's couldn't hit it Razz
