So with all the metal minis sitting on my table wanting paint applied, I decided not to add to the pile, but rather start another differnet kind of pile, yep, i went and got myself an RC tank. Now of course like most things you can spend a small amount or a god damn fortune on these things as i found out.
I opted for the cheaper end of things to start with, going with a local shop that had some in stock. So I could go in and see what I was getting. Now of couse my luck meant they didnt have any of the Russian tanks I wanted. So I went for the German Tiger 1 by Henglong. Thought it would be fun to paint up and at $170 wasnt to crazy to get me started. It doesnt have the IR system, but does have an upgrade option availablel ... (Christmas present hint)
Now after scarying the fur of the cat and playing around with the Tiger out of the box for a day or two, I dismantled it for painting. So far ive done the primer and the first base coat. At 1/16th scale its rather large compaired to what Im use to painting. .... Gotta love my air brush. Lots more work to go.
Heres what it looked like out of the box, pretty plane and borring.
