Default TORRO M16 Halftrack

Had 5-6 years ago the first model of it in 27mhz but unfortunately it quickly broke and since then I have wanted to try one again.
Now that I saw that it has been reissued in 2.4ghz and with access to parts and the possibility of 3d printing, I just had to have one again.


The first thing I have started is to open up the front armor plates so it looks like 99.8% of them drove around during ww2





It seems quite normal to start by cutting a new car.

Never even put battieries in it before he took a saw to it!

Gonna look great with the shutters open, but probably need to stay farther away from the tanks

I always admire the tank builders.... They seem to have a great attention to detail.
I just don't have that kind of patience but love to look at the build....
