KING TIGER FROM MARK 1 TANKS
The US Sherman tank we showed in the last post is no longer available from Mark 1 Tanks... but this 1:6 scale King Tiger certainly is.
The K-T's hull measures 1.2 m (48 in) long, and with the gun trained forward you can add a further half-metre (20 in) to that. The monster RC machine tips the scales at a hernia-inducing 90kg (199 lb) but, just like the real thing, the wide tracks spread the weight, so it can cruise over soft ground with ease.
