hi all i just received my porche king tiger from Ian and im liking it so far. Have someone lined up to do the camouflage. below are pictures of everything that came with it. I will be updating this thread as i progress.

so far the turret has electronics for recoil elevation and so on looks like it was jury rigged with tiger 1 turret ring as this kit did not come with options for IR from what i have been told. I do not have a board, speaker, smoke unit or radio/transmitter at this time. it does have gear boxes and motors.

Id does need a fair bit of work on it (And you have HUGE images BTW...)

A couple broken handles (on hatches). Missing axle caps. Need to open the main commander's hatch (For IR Receiver).


It does have the good gearboxes, even if you need to solder on the motor leads...

Ya i dont know why imgur made the images huge, on my phone right now they are proper size so dont know whats going on there.

Ya i have 3 of the long axle caps but none of the smaller ones sadly everything i recieved is in the pictures i did get an extra set of motors which have leads on them.
As for the hatch im going to have to figure out how to attach the hatch so i can come or or have it easily removable for the IR as there is just a post on the side to glue it to. I dont mind a few missing or broken parts as i plan to do damage on it anyway, missing skirts, skirt damage, weathering etc... Just need to get her painted and get her running.
A question i have is the flash system in the barrel is that how its supposed to be or is it supposed to be a transparent piece of plastic?

update
got some updated pictures from my painter added shell strikes/ battle damages to the tank along with painting the mg and first coat of paint on the rest of the tank. My Radio is in and will have to look into how to program it. Also got MF/DMD from Kaptain Jack here on the forum, At this point im just missing a battery/charger and a speaker. looking at getting a 7.2v 5000mha does anyone have any recommendations?

Venom Batteries usually have a multiple connector to allow for use in a wide variety of applications.

That goes for both Lipo and NiMH versions. Good quality batteries.

Depends how much you want to spend and how long you want to wait. I have ordered this one to test 

https://www.ebay.com/itm/7-4V-4200mAh-25C-2S-Lipo-Battery-With-T-connector-For-RC-Model-Heli/222943498701?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649

For quicker you can also order from Hobby King. They have a wide variety in that range. But be aware you sometimes get nicked for customs clearance as they ship Fedex. Or you can order from their international warehouse and costs less but longer to get here...

Or n my case I order from HK's USA warehouse and have it shipped to my buddy in the USA Smile $50USD = Free shipping to both USA and Canada from the US Warehouse, however if to Canada, you will get dinged for customs (FedEx adds at least $10 brokerage fees on top of duty).

Tamiya DMD's supposedly have a built in Low-Voltage Cutoff for major DMD functions, but it is set at just shy of 6V and is meant for NiCd &NiMH. The ancillary current draws will drain a battery to nada, which is not good for Lipos... Even @6V a 2 cell Lipo is really hurting.

If you do use Lipo's get a voltage alarm, cheap and loud.

From a Tamiya website....
Quote :
Q. Can 8.4V battery packs be used?

A. The product warranty is based on use with a 7.2V battery pack. Using an 8.4V battery pack is possible, but in this case there will be a lower current and the current through the BEC will also be reduced. Please do not use battery packs of 8.5V and above since they may damage the DMD Control Unit and lead to accidents.

A 2Cell Lipo has a max voltage of 8.4V (4.2V per cell). So Lipo is GTG! As is a 7 Cell NiMH (Just bigger)....

Lipo's are listed at their nominal voltage (3.7V per cell). So a 2 cell lipo nominally is 7.4V and is how it is marketed.

I have two Tamiya tanks with different MF and DMD combos. My Panther cannot run on NiMh for some reason. Says it right in the instructions. So I use LiPos in that one. In my Pershing I've run NiMh batteries from the start. You may want to consult the building instructions. One way or another LiPo's should work no problem.
Cheers!

Thanks shoveler, i got mine used and had to get mf/dmd from another member as listed above, if thsts the case ill just use lipo since your saying its the safer bet. No preference on the battery so ill take a look soon.

Update time.
Just got my mfu/fmd in the mail, everything looks good on it. Now i am looking for a speaker on here before i go off to AAF and buy one, also for a y connector for the mfu/dmd to the battery. Once i have those in theory i should be ready to out everything together once its back from paint.
More progress photos coming later today.

update.
Got her running, at the moment im missing a speaker. The turret is having issues rotating i believe the ring has been misshaped at some point, and the flash unit is not working at this moment. but it runs the gun recoils and with some adjustments the turret does traverse a good amount before the teeth start slipping.

Good job, the tracks look a bit loose and in need of tightening.
Enjoy the new toy.

That is a beautiful paint job BTW. As for tracks... Those are really shiny! Need to run them through the dirt and mud a bit... 
Tamiya rotation rings are an ongoing issue from what I have read, and yours is a cobbled together version to use the Porsche turret. Are you getting the clicking from the turret clutch slipping (when you reach the rotation limit)? I know that one option is to superglue the clutch mechanism and prevent slippage. Make sure your wires from the turret are not loose/binding on anything. Maybe even use small zip-ties to make a "single" wire bundle to the lower hull.

BTW I hate all you guys with such good artistic skills... I can do mechanical and electrical all over the place, but you artists always steal the show! Smile
