We could use a Panzer III like pictured .
The Panzer IV is not needed.
They are still out there and this printed panzer will be more than what you can get the 21st for.
Gentlemen this could be a waste of time and money.

I have the 21st Century PzIV RC version and I recently bought a Heng Long?1/16 PzIII version non-RC static model that I like. I’m not a huge SCALE nazi 😉 so using 1/16 with my 1/18 doesn’t bother me. I would pay out for something on my dream list but not a PzIV. A couple tanks I’d like to see are the M551 Sheridan and a M3 Stuart tank from WW2.

The HengLong looks so good with the proper long barrel instead of the stubby 6mm airsoft one that‘s on mine. The static versions of their tanks are hard to beat, but of course all of mine have $100’s in hopped up running gear and as much metal as I can fit. My PIII weighs in at 10lbs with everything below the fender being aluminum with full functioning torsion suspension. The Leo2 is 15lbs. 😈

I’ve bought two of the static heng longs (pzIII and Sherman) and they both have the electric motors and gear boxes in them. It appears that all I need is to drop in a radio and boom, bob’s your uncle!

Hi Gentlemen, I think I made a mistake of the thread title. We have had lots of panzer IV (21st century panzer IV, new millennium RC panzer IV, Henglong RC panzer IV, etc). I am now working on panzer III :p

Good news is the work of prototype making is very smooth and it will be completed within next week. Stay tuned.

Fixed the title. Can’t wait to see a prototype.

Everything goes very smoothly...the Panzer III prototype will be finished by the end of this week as planned.

At the same time when we show Panzer III prototype, a new project of one modern armor vehicle will be announced!

It can well interacted with 1:18 scale action figures and the soldier figures can fit in the open hatches.微信图片_20210427130552.jpg
