The Kettenkrad is now completed bar a few small tweaks and ready to be demonstrated at Munster next week markings are radschutz of the Panzer-Lehr regiment 130 in Normandy, the lights work though in this light the tail light is difficult to make out, I had to cut the lower part of the radfahrer legs off owing to the gearboxes.

Great looking model,

Built & painted an old static 1/12 plastic model for one of Robs mates last year.... what a nightmare build. So I take my hat off to you guys for making this excellent RC model.

Please can you post some pic's from Munster, enjoy your trip.

A few pictures of the tail lights in during night and day, the red and the colours stand out more in real life the pictures reduce the effect.
