Re: FOA M3 Haltrack RC Convers

Have you thought about using Shapeways? They can 3D print parts in metal. Will probably be a bit pricey but less than custom machine work.

Re: PzII Turret Interior

Thanks for the photos. Nothing there in the split hatch photo, so obviously it was a decoy much like the fake driver visor on later PzIIs.

Re: SdKfz 222/20mm question

I may be on a snipe hunt with the periscope. The first time I tried translating "tarnkappe" I got the impression it was a vision device. Now it translates to invisibility cloak, so now my thought...

Re: SdKfz 222/20mm question

Panzerwerk. I will need some too one day.
I am looking forward to watching your progress as I too am working on an interior. One question; do you have any information on the small central...

Re: Reissue of Dragon Schwimmwagen kit.

Not to sound like I am making pathetic excuses, but everyone needs to remember that the wide tires that I made were meant as an upgrade for the 21st Century Schwimmer and Dragon wasn't even making...

Re: M5 from Scratch

Fantastic work! I am so envious of your skills.
One constructive criticism; the return rollers and the outer face of the tracks should be painted OD. They were steel.

Re: 3/4 ID tube

I just did a quick search of model rocket supplies, and a place called asp rocketry, or some such thing, had 30" .745 tubing for $2.19 each when ordering 3+. Like I said it was a quick search, you...

Re: What number to go from 1/35 scale to 1/6?

I totally agree about using drawings, reproduction distortion etc., and I always try to find dimensions of the actual item I am trying to reproduce compared to plans I am using. I also tend to make...

Re: What number to go from 1/35 scale to 1/6?

The copiers at Kinkos go up to 400%. Enlarge 1/35th drawings 400%, then enlarge that 146%. Gets things close enough.
Anyone correct me if I am wrong. I'm no mathematician.

Re: Puppchen Question

I would guess the bore brush would be kept in one of the cylinders and any tools in the other. Dragon made a mistake using the original long rounds. Puppchen should use the shorter ones. The wheels...

Re: Puppchen Question

Doubtful that they would be aiming stakes. Puppchen was not a long range weapon and only had simple open sights.

Re: M4 Sherman with the Rocket deal on top.

I have a set of drawings in my pile of reference material. Give me a little time to find them.

Re: 17 Pdr Anti Tank Gun

Really impressive work! Do I understand that you do not paint with an airbrush? If that is true; you do some fine brush painting.

Re: Panther tank bunkers

I started on a Panther stellung many years ago, but the turret I was going to use was very inaccurate and I decided it would be easier to scratch build one. The idea was shelved, I moved on to other...

Re: Panzerwerk Maybach engine for Sdkfz series

I am still working on it, albeit slowly. From what I have been able to tell from photos the cover is held down by the two knobs with the Maybach logo on them. A sticking point for me is a lack of...

Hmmm. I think you need to quit that day job thing and concentrate on the more important stuff. :)
