The third full-option kit to make its appearance is the U.S. Medium Tank M26 Pershing that fought during the end of WWII and throughout the Korean War.

Model characteristics
This is the 1/16 electric radio-control assembly kit of the U.S. Medium Tank M26 Pershing that made its appearance during the end of WWII. Overall length: 536mm, overall width: 218mm, overall height: 197mm. Despite its large scale, the model has been thoroughly and accurately reproduced. Not only can the model move forward and backward and turn with a great sense of power, but the turret can be rotated and the gun raised and lowered. Recoil of the gun and movement of the hull during shooting are also perfectly reproduced and synchronized. The sound of the engine has been recorded from a real Ford GAF Liquid cooled V8 engine, the metallic clanking sound of the tracks and the sound of the shooting of the main gun adapt to the model's movement. Moreover, this kit features headlights and brake lamps that light-up and main gun and front machine gun that flash.

About the engine sound
Recording engine sound The sound of the engine was digitally recorded from a real Ford GAF liquid cooled V8 engine of the M26 Pershing at the Ropkey Armor Museum. All the variation of sound of the real engine but also all the metallic clanking of the track has been thoroughly recorded.

Painting primer for metallic parts
Tamiya Metal Primer Tamiya Metal Primer
ITEM 87061

Metallic parts like aluminum parts, photo-etched parts, die-cast parts and pressed parts increase realism and strength of plastic models. This is a handy spray can primer to treat metallic parts. It should be applied on metallic parts before paint and it will prevent paint from peeling off the model. As this transparent varnish does not dissolve plastic, you can apply it after assembly of metallic parts.
