This is the latest RC model by Coolbank in 1/16 scale. I placed it beside a 21st century toys M3A3 Halftrack in 1/18 scale and they work well enough for me. When I saw this thing advertised I thought I would turn it into my own version of the “Haunted Tank” with Jeb Stuart. The tank commander is a 21st century toys figure and fits in the hatch as shown. The hatches all open but I think you can only get an upper body positioned in the drivers and radio operators hatch’s. The gun actually recoils when shot and has a corresponding LED light in the muzzle which is too cool 😎 I paid less than $140 shipped on AliExpress. Also this tank is super fast, I’m scared to really open it up in the house until I get used to it. When the weather gets cooler I’ll take it outdoors for a test run.

I’m wrong, it was the Banggood website, not AliExpress, and it was $134.63 shipped. The box stood up good in transit and it took about 3 weeks to arrive.
