Got a handful of motorised tanks a while back, tinkered and titted about with them a while

Awesome! Years ago "Lindbergh Line" models had a lot of motorized ships and such. Added a dimension of "play" to the static model realm. Love to see a video.....hint hint!

Didn't Nigel do a WWI motorized tank kit and drive it from the workbench to the paint booth?! LOL....FUN!

Well it was part of a larger idea I had a while ago that I've been meaning to get back into.
RC props for short films, mostly Vietnam models etc.


Here's some low quality videos of some models in flight.
wee bit old now and I didn't of the Vietnam project until after the vids were taken,
anyhow,

My micro Hughes 500 in an absolute gale ! 10-15moh of wind for a 60 gram heli is an absolute gale !


and here's a scratch built boat exploring landing on a boat [smile]

abysmal photo for some reason, but it was the best of the bunch [frown]
anyhow some progress, after all the pre shading modulating la la some olive drab seeing as I had the airbrush out [smile]
looks better in real life, I'll get a photo of it in the sun as there is some nice subtle colour shifts and high lights etc.

The idea was to do RC Vietnam movie battles, my desk has a 5 foot wide photo of jungly mountains and sky as a backdrop and with a 30 inch deep desk the "Stage" is large enough to land micro helis on, I can just about squeeze a Nano CPX into a 1/48 Bell 47 and an MCPX into a 1/35 Bell47. Turned some kit into molds for some vacuum forming using Zeplon as the moldable foam but it wasn't very successful, too difficult guage the correct temperature and timing etc.
A lot of hot sweaty mess...... Anyhow, got some PBR's which I will flatten the bottom of so I can "drive" them around the desk while I land helis and drive tanks and use party poppers to blow balsa wood watch towers up with incense for smoke bombs and all that [smile]

Not a small project !! [biggrin]
