    This may seem rediculous but has anyone ever tried to make a paper tank rc, with paper tracks, this might be possibe with a halinski model.

    I have seen rc paper tanks but they were basically shells of tanks mounted over little remote control cars. :D

    Not to derail but here is something of interest. A card model would be a good wood template for this ... the luckiest kid in the world.

    Cool, maybe I'll design a 1/5 working Jagdpanther to beat the C*** out of that Sherman.

    Paper R/C tank model?

    Greetings and Merry Xmas to all.:grin:

    I'm new to this site, though I have been lurking from time to time.

    To answer your question I've been experimenting with the idea a bit.
    I didn't use the paper tracks idea, but I did enlarge a 1:25 scale sdkfz-184 card kit to 1:16 scale and adapted it to a old R/C tank chassis for R/C combat. I printed the model on 8.5x11 label paper and stuck the "graphics" to 1/8th wood venneer paneling scraps as a template, I liked the appearance so I decided to keep it as is. The other details can be provided upon request. The ferdinand/Elephant is not completed as yet, work is progressing.

    Please note that the gun used in the picture has been replaced with a scale mount. No new picture as yet.

    regards

    Hi Bullyhys,
    I do BigGun Combat Warships in 1/144 scale that use Co2 powered cannon that fire Ball Bearings. Does your tank R/C combat use the same principles?
    Please email me some more pics, links etc

    regards

    Hi Peter,

    To answer your question the tanks in 1/16th scale use a electronic combat system that uses a IR signal simular to a TV remote setup.:)

    Some of the larger scale tanks (1/6th) actually do shoot paintballs and such.

    There local R/C tank clubs in your area that have websites, and a host of other site world wide. This is the R/C Tank club that I belong to here in the USA: http://web.mac.com/ksoc/iWeb/S.C.A.T./Welcome.html

    Send me an email and I'll try an give you some more details.

    Have a Happy New Year

    Regards,
