Motorise Tamiya Mk.IV with R/C Control -but how?!

I'd got the Tamiya kit and like to motorize it with a Tamiya Twin-Motor or Double Gearbox (where's the difference?) to get both tracks separatly driven.
But I don't really have a clue how to do this..!?
Does somebody got some experience or knew a good info, maybe?
I think I will need a R/C Controller with an receiver, but how is this to link with the gearbox?!
And how is it possible to add sound to it?

My first intention was to built it, more, "straight from the box" (about the motorisation; just forward) and add a "greeting card sound modul" extra for driving sound.
But it would be even nicer with complete R/C steering and sound effects as MG and gun fire!

Any help orĀ  link would be grateful appreciated!!

I built a Ermhar 1/35 scale Mk4 tank and had to build my own tracks out of rubber hand cast moods. With the excellent models to date like takom and tamiya with working tracks, RC ing the models is simple, just rob another cheap kit which is ready to buy and run and swap the guts. The other way is to buy and fit micro servers, a RC controller and pick a certain size channel transmitter to operate the motors all you need is two channels for basic track control and wire the sound in with the operation when the motors switch on. I did post my tank on this forum which was a few years ago. It worked very well for what was available before linked tracks of the tamiya and takom models.
