    What I meant was, they would have the raw materials to design and build the diorama to the desired scale. Would imagine most work would have to be from scratch.....so, inside layout would be more sustainable. Not saying an outside system couldn't be built, but it would require substantial maintenance....... Like real armor vehicles d o, so.....

    I have three 1/16 scale m3 or m5, think m3, they have small lawn mower 12v batteries, sound, full independent suspension, right now I have a sticky servo in one unit and a control issue on another hand held controller, the the third will be used for parts because these tanks are not made anymore which means no getting needed parts, a few years ago I had to rebuild the drive for one of the tanks. I really need to get them out and bring up to operating condition in case the compound is over run.

Price is just under $200, depending on model.
    How do they "recognize" the hits: audio, tactile, electromagnetic or something?

    There is a small clear receiver turret on the top of each tank, and that's what you want to shoot at. More research is showing 1/24 scale not to be too popular.IMG_0255.jpg

    It's be wild to gather a crowd of "collectors" in some big park somewhere and field a Tursk commemorative or something! opcorn:

    I have an Abrams about that size that I got off Ebay five or more years ago. The rubber tracks are the weak point. They break easily, especially when turning. Maybe the one in the original post is better.
    It is a poverty when a dictionary must die so a person may spell as they wish.
