The company that make them, Mark I Tanks, here in the UK, do quite a range of vehicles in different scales. They are mostly metal construction and feature thinks like digitised sound and smoke synced to the motor speed, also an option for firing BB and anamatronic figures.

The 1/4 scale Tiger II weighs in at around 250 kgs and will all the extra's and customised finish will set you back around £8k

Bob, those tanks would make me stop drinking in a hurry if I saw one on the way home one night.  :notme:

Very expensive toys indeed.

If you stopped drinking and saved the money, you could buy one in a few years months weeks days.
