Clearly, looking at two um tamiya uh plastic models here, i’ve reviewed the chieftain mark 5, but i haven’t reviewed the panther okay and that’s, going to be in a an upcoming unboxing and review soon. ok, i’ve, never modeled tanks before so. These two models are of great interest to me really because they present sort of a new chapter in my modelling uh hobby throughout my lifetime and i’ve, never actually modeled a tank so i’m. Looking forward to these two now, then i’ve got a third tank and it’s another german tank, ok, but it’s not 135th scale. ok, like these two it’s, 1 16 scale and it’s radio control, so let’s have a look at it, and here it is guys behold the beast that is the german tiger. One tank radio controlled with all the radio gear pre installed in 1, 16 Scară: ok, it’s an absolute beast now i have not had this out of the box yet so my opinions and thoughts and feelings about this are going to be 100 genuine. ok, i will verbalize what i’m thinking as i’m thinking it to you, but uh. Absolutely stunning, Sunt.. Eu sunt.. Staggered really um. 1 16 Scară, rc tanks by tamiya. You know you’re, looking at six, seven, eight, Nouă, a thousand pounds um. You know nine hundred to a thousand pounds for most of them. Um. Sometimes you get an offer. Mă scuzați, you get an offer for, like you, know, six hundred quid discounted and then on top of that you add 150 pound radio, ok, but this particular rc tank that we’re going to have a good look at now was 140 quid okay, and that includes the Radio gear so i’m not expecting it to be as good as the thousand pound tank, but i wasn’t expecting it to be as good as this all right.
I haven’t even had it out of the box yet, but looking at it through the the clear plastic, it looks absolutely stunning, it really really does, and now these are designed to be operated in tandem with another tank, and i think this german tiger one is coupled With a russian t34 tank and they’re they’re about 150, so what’s this space, you know if if this is as good as i think it is, then i’ll probably get that t 34 și. So there you get a better look at the tank, guys i’ve now taken out the outer box and it’s still on its plinth in situ and fastened in of course, but uh. You do get a a good idea as to the sort of standard of uh accessories and detailing that you get on this pretty cheap tank, really considering you get all the gear with it. That is uh, quite something now being a plastic model, of course uh. If this ever gets, tatty then i’ll be able to get me airbrush out and tidy up won’t, i so that’s uh. You know a bonus with uh, also being a plastic modeler when you purchase something like this, but very, very nice in this desert scheme. It really is lovely right. Bine, i’ve got my sprue cutters, so i’m just going to undo or cut rather these restrainers and i’m wondering if my tag will come out and now it won’t. ok, so it’s clearly fastened onto the plinth right.
ok, so that’s uh for decorative effect, only that’s, a lovely looking transmitter. It really is and you’ve got. Uh you’ve really got nice movement there and the tension is really nice. I wonder if it’s adjustable, dar uh da, so there’s your gun there and there’s your fire there. ok, two different sounds obviously and uh. These are presumably trims on the side here, but i’ll have to read the bump that’s a lovely transmitter to hold it really. Is you know my my hands are sort of average size really, perhaps quite large. I don’t know so that gives you a bit of scale: adică, Uh, Da, very nice. Indeed, adică. That really is lovely. Um i’m, not expecting you to be able to adjust the tension on the uh, the radio but uh that is top notch. drăguţ. Looking bit of kit lovely considering this is um, you know obviously made and sold to a budget, that’s uh that’s, quite impressive, Deci 10 din 10 for that riley guys. So now, taking the cardboard surround background thing off, we find out that our tank is actually screwed to the base. ok, but so one thing i’ve noticed is a very nice looking gun isn’t that lovely and that clearly sits here: ok, but that’s going to be lovely isn’t. It very nice indeed nicely detailed. You can’t see it when it’s in the wrapping properly, but i will show you when i uh take it out, but that looks really really nice really good.
Considering this is built and sold to a budget. This is really good stuff. Deci, in order to get the tank off the plinth now um, i need to basically undo these four um self tappers here. ok, so i’ll take those off now off the camera and uh we’ll have a really good look at this tank um off the plinth and uh in front of us, but certainly the paint job looks amazing doesn’t it guys it really really does and the level of Detail with the accessories is just remarkable. I don’t know what your thoughts are, Baieti, that very very nice and also the tracks feel really good as well, but we will have a really good look at it, lads so there’s our tank, guys and it’s uh. Clearly, out of the packaging now – and i put the um the little gun in place and it’s just a slide, uh affair i’ll probably glue it in place actually, but it certainly does look the part doesn’t. It really really is good and uh. Yeah we’ll have a closer look at everything later, but certainly first impressions. It is a very, very nice looking tank and even though it’s been made and sold to a budget, it uh it certainly uh, presents itself really really nicely and has been made very well uh. It has to be said so just turn it around. Here there you go there’s your tank from behind now i’m, not going to rotate the turret manually, ok, i’ll uh.
I don’t want to break any mechanisms, so i will wait until the power switched on and there is slight chipping all over the place. I don’t know if that’s an authentic chipping, but there are a few little imperfections, but of course tanks are never mint. Are they so those imperfections are just going to add to the appeal, în opinia mea, certainly when this tank gets dirty in in use and things it’s just going to make everything look more authentic, but uh, very, very nice. Indeed, if i just bring the light this side and i’ll lower the camera, so hopefully you’re having a look at the back end. Now sorry about that lads but yeah, you can certainly see the level of detail around the back here, um slight imperfection and scuff there. Maybe but again it’s a tank. So you know if you don’t, want something that’s mint really so that that’s, probably why they’ve the quality control has allowed this to slip through, but a little scuff. There look – and you know a little mark there, perhaps but still very, very nice and uh when you’ve got an airbrush, though guys, if you’re a plastic modeler like me, then you know that’s have no fear. So what do you think guys yeah, very, very nice? If you’re into your tanks – and this is the first rc tank i’ve ever owned and i’ve – never actually modeled a normal tank, as i’ve said so yeah very nice.
Indeed, what do you think guys um if you’ve got the seven eight hundred nine hundred a thousand pound tamiya tanks that are for sale, uh you’ll be able to do a direct comparison, uh reference in this video and uh? You know you’ll be able to sort of see what the differences are but aesthetically. Clearly i haven’t switched it on yet but uh. I do love all of these little accessories everywhere. They really do make it look authentic, so very nice indeed wow incredible. Now then, if i just um turn it on its side, for you just lift it up and turn it on its side, you can see the uh. There are various bits and pieces that are going to need gluing down, but you can see the suspension. Look. You know you have got uh an authentic, looking movement to all of the wheels and the tracks feel really nice i’ll, just uh hold it like that for you and those tracks they do look very, very nice indeed, so clearly, underneath there you’ve got the on off Switch there, the volume of the speakers and where you put your batteries there so nothing too technical, but yeah that’s um that switch looks a little bit vulnerable. I’M surprised it’s there to be honest with you um. I would have hoped that it would have been somewhere where it can’t accidentally be switched off, um yeah, deci asta e, perhaps a little toy like you know they could have had a switch here, for example couldn’t they out the way so um yeah, i might uh.
I might have some sort of rubber protection for the switch to ensure that it doesn’t get switched off, but there you go now. It does take a lot of batteries if i’m right, i think the the actual tank takes. Eight batteries and the transmitter takes six. So i’m gon na have to source uh all of those batteries, so we can hear the tank uh switch switched on and so on. So right let me source those batteries guys and i’ll get back to you, but certainly um as it stands. That is impressive. Looking isn’t it, it really is. Wow it’s got a real sort of presence to it. 1 16 Scară. You know it’s uh. It is a nice size, so yeah wow, lovely right, then guys. I i have loaded up the um let’s, just move the audio i’ve loaded up the batteries and um i’ve tested it and it’s very loud. ok, there is a volume switch underneath, ok, so i’ve i’ve, because my um sony uh electronic voice recorder is very sensitive i’ve. Actually turned the volume down okay, but you’re gon na get a very good idea. What this is gon na be like okay. So if i just um move the tank over there, slightly okay let’s just see if the uh get the camera up for you all right, beautiful, looking tank, i am absolutely made up with it. So if i just um turn it on there, you go transmitter is now armed and if i just i’m annoyed at the switch being underneath to be honest with you.
So if i just pardon my tricky chair, if i just um, lift this gently now, clearly the batteries go underneath yeah and it’s a bit of a faff. You know to be honest: Um, because you’ve got items on the top that you don’t want to damage. So you can’t turn it on its turret. ok, so you’ve just got to basically switch it on okay. I hope the audio is coping with that. ok, so there’s a turret, ok, Muzica, ok, i’ll fry after you receive them Applause or down, and then five Applause. Oh Applause, Aplauze, turret on fire Applause, Aplauze – that is most excellent. I mean clearly i’m on my bench at the moment. I’Ll say, but so we’ll get this outdoors. ok, i’ll do another video of this and uh. I think i’m gon na get the other one to be honest with you and i’ll, be able to uh to have battle with my mates and stuff, so that’d be fantastic, but uh. Absolutely superb, este, a very nice transmitter to use. Clearly, this is the first day i’ve i’ve started using it, but it’s very user friendly and uh yeah it’s going to be very good and it certainly looks to be um. You know it’s hardly touching the throttle at all. It certainly looks to be responsive, așa că da. The next video update on this, i will show you it’s outdoors, climbing stuff, and you know all that sort of gubbins but uh, very, very nice.
Indeed guys i was uh itching to show you this. I really was so yeah. What do you think guys? I think it’s uh worth it. I think it is absolutely fun now the volume was set to low. Then okay, so you know this you’ve got a rotational volume control and it was almost on off, but so you know the the speaker is very loud. Indeed, and i know my electronic voice recorder is sensitive that’s, why i turned it down, but uh very, very nice. Indeed, guys so there you go, there is the uh tank, the trumpeter 1 16 Scară, gaming tank, all right and uh. If i get the other one, um i’ll go through a similar video with you, but then we’ll show them in action. I’Ll get my friend to drive the other one and because apparently they make all sorts of different noises when they’re hit and so on, and they they uh. They judge whether or not they’ve been hit using infrared. I believe reading the instructions, but very very nice indeed guys i’m made up. I really am you can probably tell i feel 12 inside. I really do and you know i’m 50 in june i’m – not complaining. I hope you enjoyed this. I hope i didn’t waffle on too long guys, but uh. You know i know i can get rather excited, but i was itching to show you this. I really was fantastic. Pity is not british, dar acolo te duci.
You know the german kit was pretty nice anyway. Even though we fought them, you know but never mind very, very nice. Indeed. I do like this colour scheme, but what’s most striking about it is the level of detail they’ve gone into um, it looks really authentic and it looks well done and if the tamiya 800 900 quid tanks are better than this, then they really must be something else, Because this is for the money, this is absolutely fabulous. It really is. I hope you enjoyed the video guys. If you have, then please give me a thumbs up if you’re catching this and you’re, not a subscriber, then please consider subscribing as i’d love to have you on board i’m, not really an armored guy at heart, Baieti, Sunt., Sunt., an aircraft guy and a car guy. Really um, but this is you know it was on my bucket list of things to do and uh i’ve now done it so uh.
