Question:

Being as the model is both metal and plastic can you let me know the best make of paints to use . Thanks Bob

Answers:

    Hi, if you use a paint primer you should be able to use the same paint on both surfaces.

    We would not suggest using a spray primer as this can get into components and cause damage.

  1. EXCELLENT QUALITY, GREAT TANK KIT

    By Timur June 02, 2020

    I'm very happy that I purchased this kit. No regrets at all. Building the tank from the scratch - it is just amazing.
    It took me about a week - but there wasn't any rush, I was absolutely enjoying the process.

    For all future buyers: Please pay attention to section "Need to be purchased" and "Essentials" - that items you have to buy yourself.

    Thanks Nitrotek for the great deal!

  2. SELF ASSEMBLY TAIGEN TIGER 1 RC TANK - 360 TURRET - KIT VERSION

    By Geoff April 28, 2020

    Very quick delivery on tank, arrived in 24 hours looking forward to the building it. Looks good quality,

  3. Fantastic, High quality kit, kept me entertained for a good 4 days

    By Dan April 21, 2020

    New to the tank building hobby, After been indecisive over a week, I decided to buy this tank kit.
    I was not disappointed. The parts are of high quality and feel 'well made'.
    The kit has kept myself busy for the past 4 or so days, you really have to build this tank from scratch.
    Instructions are very clear, and I built it without any problems. If your new to modelling you may struggle to start with.

    Id say the electrics were the only tricky part.

    The tank weighs 7.2kg once complete with battery etc, a rather heavy bit of kit, the two motors power this with ease. The tank isn't fast, however it is quite powerful, it went up a rather steep offroad incline in the garden.

    Overall very happy, wouldn't mind building another one. Do not regret it.

    Nitrotek were great to deal with too.

    Dan.
