tǎnkè is the Chinese word for tank. Ordered this 1/16 scale model of the German tank Tiger with metal gear motors and metal tracks at taobao and started to build a new robot.
First I removed the complete upper parts and this is how it looks today:
The motor driver will be a Sabertooth Dual 25A 6-24V. The robot will have a SRF05 and wireless camera with 500mW TX at the front and two Sharp IR at the rear.
Front cover with servo bracket for camera and SRF05 pan/tilt unit added. The cover is made from 2mm ABS sheet and then painted.
Camera and SRF05 pan/tilt unit finished and Sharp IR's on the rear added:
