My 1/6 scale RC Challenger 2 tank

    Recommended Posts

    Hi guys, here’s a pic of my remote controlled Challenger 2 tank.   It’s 6ft long and weighs 14 stone.  It’s a powerful lump running on 2 mobility scooter motors and steel gearbox.....12volt It has sound, smoke, fast rotating turret and barrel elevation.  I’ve done loads of detailing on it and it’s nearly finished lol

    Cheers

    I actually know the effort it takes to produce something like that . Well done.

    Wow, just wow.  😍Have you built it from scratch or is there a kit? It looks very accurate and as Dunks says (his sons make very large r/c planes) it takes a lot of commitment to model at that scale! 👍

    Thanks guys,  the tank comes pre made and running.......but fairly basic.....so I’ve opened up lots of the hatches and detailed them with working hinges etc.  Painted it and made various parts for it including a rear cage for Jerry cans.......The figures are 12inches so it kinda gives a bit of an idea of the scale........I even made 1/6 scale ratchet straps for the rear fuel drums and Bungee cords lol......that’s what I luv about it, you can just keep adding to it......here’s a few more pics of bits I’ve made for it 👍 oh and I added Brad Pitt (war daddy) to the crew lol

    Are you going to 'distress' it at some point? 

    Yep,  once all done I’ll add some weathering to it, but not too

    much 👍

    At 1/6 scale, it would be 10 bore as original is 120mm smooth bore

    That really is a cracking model, what are you aiming to achieve?

    What period is it meant to represent?
