The building is a typical Iraqi or Middle Eastern small house. A setup diorama is relatively important for RC tankers, because it enhance the joy of controlling our miniature scale model tanks. I owned an 1/16 M1A2 TUSK Abrams RC tank, it is a converted Hobby Engine brand with Heng Long electronic as you can see on the pics.
