Hey Guys,

Anyone have experience with Mato's metal Tiger's or Panzers?
is it worth the money going all metal? what are your experiences?

There is nothing wrong with all metal as long as you have a driveline to support them. Heavier tank = more driveline stresses and required force to move. Usually however, they can go through taller grass and have a more realistic track look to them.

Only ever seen Mato Sherman's myself however...

Totally understandable in regards to weight and the stress on the driveline. I’m currently deciding between the panzer 3 or king tiger unpainted. Still deciding if I should get the IR versions or just get the static ones and put my own R/C gear in them.

NP! It might be better to take pics and send them to ya. The border isn't likely to reopen for a while yet. Sad

we could always send a rc boat across the river. if anything it would be funny to see the look of the custom peoples face to see a rc tank being smuggled across the border then returned

Hmmmmm. We should look into that possibility. Ha haaaa. This is the only pic I have of the drives at the moment. This is when it was brand new and I hadn't messed with it at all yet. 

Mike. I liked that Piranha unit. Couldn't get it to work right though. It was taking hits from every direction. It has a normal Tamiya apple now. I still have it and may try it again.

Good eye Ed. Yes. The Canadian Flag is the only reason I took the picture. Wink And yes, I do miss being able to be there for battle days!
