Started this one about a year ago, it is a full option Tamiya 1/16th remote control model with all options turret traverse, elevation, engine, engine main gun and machine gun sounds. Did a few mods opened up all the hatches and added crew. Painting figures, especially faces is not for me!
She's a late model Panther G after the T34 probably the best tank of WW II.
Have made the driver and commander so they can hunker down for combat.
Love the camo -you don't see that kind of thing on planes!! Was it sprayed or brushed on?
Yeah she is spray painted with a two stage air brush, was a pretty tricky scheme to put down. Some German and especially Italian aeroplanes have pretty exotic camo schemes, I always think the Italians painted their aeroplanes like the pizzas they are famous for!

Tamiya kit, they do around 9 or 10 1/16th kits, full rc with full proportional control, engine sound, main gun and machine gun. You can buy IR after market sender/receivers and have combat.
My kit has a few after-market and scratch built mods, opening hatches with crew, pe grills, pretty conservative compared to what some folk do. You can buy replacement gear boxes different sound systems replacement bearings the whole hog if you want to spend the $.
Saw the heading and thought, thats cool, someone has done a R/C model of Grumman's straight winged carrier jet but no such achievement, when I go ahead and open the thread and what do you know, its a bl**dy tank! I know Grumman's nickname was "The Iron Works" but this is taking it a bit far!
