  Early in '04 I happened across the RC Tank Combat website while out doing some surfing and became intrigued. Basically, these are 1/6th scale scratch built radio control tanks with paintball markers installed. We're talkin' tanks that can weigh over 100 lbs and are at least 3 feet long! Basically, the object is to go out and try to paint the opponents tanks to win. Not that I needed another hobby but I couldn't resist this...  

My 1st project...that became a quest!

Just a tad (1/2"!) too small at 1/9th scale but a great RC model!
