Our most recent order from Mato will include the new Panzer IV track set for late model tanks (long gun). I am looking forward to receiving these as recently finding a track set for this particular tank could be expensive. Release pictures are very promising and further Mato's commitment to continually improving their products.
We will also receive a set of their new Panther G/Jagdpanther tracks for testing purposes. These tracks are completely remodeled over Mato's previous release. The testing is to check for fitment issues, we worked closely with Mato on these tracks and there might be fitment issues with the standard Heng Long sprockets. I am currently working with Mato to re-design their sprockets to provide a better fit.
Also in the new order are standard metal replacement suspension arms (swing arms) for the Pant
Not so regular posts! We are currently working slowly towards the launch of the Panzer Command online shop. While we will still trade on eBay, we will be closing the eBay shop and limiting the amount of items listed.
The online shop will offer more products, cheaper prices on many parts as well as special offers such as sales, bundle deals and many more.
Panzer Command continues to work with manufacturers on new projects and hope to increase our supplier list in the future. We have started stocking TaiGen parts which are great! Early 2012 we will be stocking a few novelty items such as a water squirting Radio Control LAV-25 which will hopefully go with Hobby Engines Abrams M1A2 that we hope to stock. On the more professional level we are looking at stocking the SLU, with samples having just arrived this month. Currently waiting to be transplanted into a yet unmade Mato Tiger. The other Panzer III sample will be tried out in a Hooben Elefant where I hope to use two speakers to generate the noise of two engines. Might work, might not!
I have recently been concentrating on news updates on http://www.rctankregiment.com/ but from now on I will stop slacking and add product updates on here as well.
New stock is due in soon, mostly from Mato with more metal Tiger parts. We also have the Heng Long King Tiger in stock in very limited numbers.
Also arrived is a few units of the Hooben T-55.
My latest stock order from Mato has arrived, just sorting through the order now, well box one of two anyway! Some new detail parts are here, metal fire extinguishers, jerry cans and helmets.
