Yeah, the FT has been giving me fits.   It's a cool tank, but getting
the wierd angles to play is wasting a lot of time and effort.  I'd
been looking at the Maus for the boxy shape and wierdness value.  And
Aahz's inspirational suffering :)

Also, Caster Supply has 2" diameter wheels for $0.75 each, which is
the right size if I do Maus to a 1m size (actual 1/16 size is like
1.6m).  If I do it to 1/6 scale, they have 3" wheels which are close
for $1.15 each.

What do you guys think?  Two 400W Kollmorgen motors, do it at 1m, or
at 1/6 scale(1.68m)?

M60A1 "the Beast" under construction
FT-17 "Frenchy" also U/C
Why do tankers call infantry "Crunchies"??? Because they ARE!!!
