Thanks Jordan. Went out and got myself a set of those and the side came off in 2 mins. I always wanted a set but this is an excuse for it. 

I was thinking of actually drilling out the sprockets from behind rather than trying to wrestle with it from the outside since I have to create the opening anyway. 

Since mine has the open cab I will have to find some tarp to cover up the battery, electronics etc.

Thanks again and will let you know how I make out with this sucker.

Mike.

Inspired by Jordan's build, and will his great help and input, I managed to convert my Sdkfz 251/1 Stuka Zu Fuss to RC as well. Vs Tiger motors and gears, Asiatam FAMO metal tracks, Taigen 2.4Ghz MFU (for the moment just to cut down on cost). Working Bosch headlight and Front MG courtesy of Curtis.

Thanks again Jordan for your great build !

Looks good Mike.

I so need to start mine.

Thanks Derek....... I cheated a bit, didn't put in the steering on the front wheels. I figure the tracks will push and turn anyway....... Also, my sprockets probably won't hold up if I run it on rough terrain as it is just epoxy to the drive shafts. If it comes off I will pour some resin, pull the drive shafts out and stick it into the sprockets until it is one piece then push them back into the motor/gear set.

The whole project was easier than I thought actually. Is yours the 251/22 as well ? If I had the 251/22 I would try to sneak in a servo recoil in there.........

That looks great Mike. What did you add paint wise? I know a lot of these 21st Century models came with different camo styles, so I can't tell what's added and what's 'stock'.

I need some camo netting or equivalent to cover up my insides. I have 2 big bright BLUE servos completely visible on the gun for traverse and elevation, they don't quite fit in Wink 

The steering is something you can add on at any time, but for what it's worth I think it really completes the project. On harder surfaces it looks really neat to see the wheels pull it through a nice tight turn. It's the toughest thing to do, but once you get the front axles situated, it's not impossible. 

OH! I also drilled out & filed the divers windows, added a little depth.. .I still need to get some lights & combat capability for mine!

Mike: My half track is just the plain old version with just the machine guns in the front and back. I'll probably change to a different type, just haven't desieded yet.


Strato: What about painting the blue servos?

Jordan, the camo is stock. It looks pretty good so I just lightly weathered it. The only thing added is the MG shield at the front. If you look close you will notice that it doesn't have the ambush camo dots on it. I just matched the tri-colour pattern.

If I take out the battery the MFU and the speaker is pretty well hidden in the driver's compartment so I don't really need the netting for that. It was more for the working MG since the back end is just a plug behind the gun shield. that's another reason for the gun shield since the stock one doesn't come with any.

Derek, you should go for the 251/20 with the big IR search light. That's what Dean told me to do to hide the mushroom for battling.......  :-)

Hi Mike, I was thinking of doing something like this bad boy, a SdKfz 251/9 Stummel Ausf D. grin

Ouch, that's a bit of a nasty business......... Let me know if you need a L/24........ I rip mine out from the Panzer IV F so it is just sitting here doing nothing. I used the mantlet but it looks like you will have to scratch build that anyway. The barrel is yours if you want it. I just have to find it.

Frank I really like how mine turned out / is turning out. The ONLY negative being I wish it was twice as fast Razz
