This is my first time posting, and thought I'd introduce myself. I'm a avid follower of military history, especially vehicles, planes, and the WW2 Pacific Theater. I remember back when I was a kid and played with RC cars and always imagined if there was a way to have some kind of war with them... I think I'm really glad I found the rctankcombat.com website and this mailing list.
Looking through the site, I've developed some ideas based on the tanks that were made by the members there... Now, I'm not sure if/when I'll be able to actually construct this vehicle, but I thought I'd toss the idea around to see how feasable it may look. I was looking at using a M3 Lee/Grant as a base, as it looks roomy enough to mount equipment inside without too much modification. The PB marker would be mounted where the 75mm gun is, with the 37mm a dummy, but using the turret as a PB hopper to reload by removing the turret and pouring the PBs inside. I'll have to think of a way to recreate the suspension parts, but I'll get something planned. =)
I live in Philadelphia PA, so maybe one of these days I can get down to MD for the action down there. =)
