It takes ages to make the tracks up, each link comprises of five bits that have to be assembled. Every part is metal.

Gearbox assembled and fitted, the chassis will still have to be dismantled so that I can spray it.

Started building the turret

The above pictures are of the Turret Rotation Unit which was sold as an upgrade for this kit, you can see how it fits in the pictures. I intend to convert the control unit from being servo operated to some form of electronic control (a bit like a speed controller) that will make the turret operate more like a servo, with auto centering at switch on, no 360 degree rotation, but retain the ability to hold the turret rotated at any position without having to hold the transmitter stick off centre.
