Two Trumpeter's conversion in a row........ This is the newly release T-72B. At some point there might be an RC release, but I will give it a go anyway:

Another Trumpeter RC Conversion - T-72B Trp00910

The all singing all dancing turret, replaced the kit plastic barrel with one from the ZTZ-99 since I have it sitting in the parts bin. Should have gotten the Heng Long T-90 ones but too cheap and I don't think it is available yet. Clark TBU mounted in the commander's cupola, and IR is in the gunner's shielded scope. Recoil is Big Mike's ultra compact unit with some mod.

The upper is quite detail and has all the mount points for speaker for the upper rear deck, a rotation unit (Although it doesn't match HL's. I assummed it is the same as the WSN unit which is slightly different) but almost identical and with some minor shimming it fits onto the HL T-90 lower.

The rear back plate doesn't match so although you can't see it here I have to sub in the one from the kit. No biggie.

Another Trumpeter RC Conversion - T-72B Dscn1950



The road wheels need to be bore out a little bit with a 15/64" drill bit, but it is almost as good as Heng Long plastic ones, and has soft rubber rims. Sprockets, idlers and tracks will be HL.

HL T-90 lower. Just some minor inserts and shimming on the side and front and back. It will have an IBU2U with T-72 sound file.

Nothing mechanical. The turret is low and the mantlet is quite small so have to make the front end smaller and more compact. The mount pin and the servo arm screws have to be trim down as well.

I think the ZTZ barrel is a BB barrel so it is probably larger than it needs to be.

Need more painting and detailing but the electronic and mechanical part is done. Could use anĀ  extra track link or two but that is on order.

Thanks Tom ! Yes the main gun recoil. I used a ZTZ-99 barrel and it mates to the trumpeter almost perfectly and Jarlath's recoil unit in the turret. Will post a video of it and maybe more interior shoots.
