It's because the Tamiya Gods are mad at you for what you did to your Sherman. No

Probably LOL. Tamiya turret and barrel elevation motors are just crap.

I spent 30 minutes working on my Leo tonight and things started coming together. All motors are now working, even the sound system seems to be working without issue.

I am going to get her up and running for November (weather permitting).

Looks like a nice clean HL up grade .

Some years ago I built several Tamya rc trucks and The plastic gears seemed much more robust and stood up to heavy abuse. However I had not seen Tamiya 's tank gearing before a was surprised to see how marginal the design was when they failed in your sherman turret

To late to shoot the video. I'll try tomorrow.

I am just glad this tank will be finished before the world ends in 50 days.

Thanks. The paint job consists so far of Olive Drab out of a spray can with Tamiya OD (JGSDF) airbrushed over top. Still lots of painting to do on it.

I am just happy that all the electronics and motors work. I am going to put a heat sink overtop of that 'C' Chip just incase.

As for the Joes, I was bored yesterday. LOL

I found this video this moningl. Ian was asking for some of my source links. Here is a great one.









Thx Tim .I watched this raw video and afterward felt like I had been on a training run with them. Was surprised at the sound the casings made when they drop ,like an oil drum .then I saw why when the chase truck was shown picking them up . Surprisingly large.

Of course this link lead to a number of related you tube videos and hours of Canadian tanker in action.good post thx again
