    What we need to do is start a club, you know a few hundred people, and we all buy one:

    - And then we get together every now and then and look for bullies on playgrounds to circle up on. Or,

    - Maybe we stage a miniature recreation of the Battle of Kursk!

    That sure beats $259.95, but an apples-to apples comparison sure would be nice to have:

    It's an addiction! Here are four of ours. The two big ones are 1/16 scale Taigen tanks, made in Germany. Price is in the $400 to 600 range, but they are worth every penny. The high end versions are about 90% metal and weigh around 25 lbs. They fire air soft BB's about 90 feet. They also have loud sounds for engine, main gun, machine gun, and they even have exhaust with the included oil.

    Most of our battles with these big girls end up going from tank on tank to tank on person after enough cocktails.

    The smaller tanks are 1/24 scale VS Pro tanks and are infrared instead of air soft. They also have all of the really cool sounds including explosion when they are hit. You get 40 shots with the main gun and after 5 hits your tank is out of commission. They also rock and light up after taking a hit. To be honest they are more addictive than the big tanks. Price is just under $200, depending on model.

    We really want to build a battle field diorama for the 1/24 tanks but can't find a good source of accessories and models ( buildings and such ) to do it. Any help would be appreciated
    . A tank get together would be awesome too!IMG_0252.jpg

    Relatively inexpensive "armor" as that goes! Imagine the fuel savings your experiencing! LOL Nice looking motor pool ya got there! Imagine you could build most all that you need for a diorama from balsa wood and stuff from the model Railroad industry....

    That's wild! It makes a real game out of fielding a tank regiment.

    I think marchplumber is right on the nailhead, and the model railroading marketplace is where you might search for accessories. If the trend grows, you can bet that they'll jump on the bandwagon. Maybe you could give them the nudge.

    OK, well apparently (according to the text behind this vid), nobody makes any accessories to that scale.

    That doesn't mean that nobody ever will, though.
