Thunder Tiger Buggy Orion 12×2 Motor Tyre Ballooning

My stock 17.5 Thunder tiger smoked out last week so I have replaced it with an orion 12×2 motor.

Modelsport is currently selling orion motors at half price.

I am tempted to pick up some more as spares.

Westland Lynx Flight (Remote Control)

Probably my best flight so far. This is a video of me flying the Hubsan Lynx remote control helicopter. It is single rotor, fixed pitch and flies even better than the blade 120SR I have.

UPDATE : On further testing the blade 120 SR is still more agile. This is likely because its much lighter than the Lynx.

1/16 Tiger Tank Progress

I finally got round to doing some more work on my Tiger Tank. The parts I have been working on are the lower hull and front plate.

The brass etched mud flaps were a pain as you had to bend all the tiny parts into shape.
It is proving to be an expensive model to paint, I used two cans of spray paint on the hull and road wheels alone.
