Okay so IMEX is probably your best bet for non Tamiya tanks like Taigen. Matomart is also an option but just for Heng Long's. If youwant cheap Tamiya's AAF Museum is the best place to get them. Don't forget that they all have different IR signals, so only Heng Long will battle Heng Long, Taigen with TaigenĀ  and Tamiya with Tamiya's and not with any others.

Metal lower Taigens with torsion bar suspension are the best (Panzer IV's are all the same side mounted suspension, and while my favourite tank of WWII, they are horrible in grass...)
