Re: Another StuG Anyone?

I wonder if there would be a way to start a league table of models ? Then as popularity for one model or another grew, AT could work out the costings and put up the number needed to be commercially viable for the kit to be produced. I would guess things based on the Pz III or Pz IV would be cheaper ...

Re: Guy Martin WW1 MKIV Tank build

Interesting to see the TM Mark IV is sitting on sheets of wood to protect the ground.

Guy's tank seemed to make quite a mess of the ground wherever it went, so they would have needed to board out the whole procession route.

Re: Painting Armortek Models / Alu

I agree with Stephen above about the order of doing things like sub assemblies, but having seen the number of parts in a Kompact Kit gun, I wonder how KK builders have managed the painting side, as the elevation/traverse mechanisms for instance have tens of parts to each piece. I doubt many builders...

Re: Guy Martin WW1 MKIV Tank build

Still without war, I'm sure we'd still be building exciting models though, like ermm, farm yard machinery, tractors or a working combine harvester. It's an interesting question as to where we would be without the accelerated mechanisation and industrial growth caused by the two 'World' wars. I also...

Re: Mark IV Colour

Spotted this picture on the Guy Martin Mark IV programme: Fosters142.jpg Colour looks darker than skin tones but lighter than most of their hair. I don't know why but the idea of people working in engineering factories always brings to mind the sort of engineering/lab coat worn by Ronnie Barker in "...

Re: Introduction and a couple of questions

I thought it was the DX7 they had dropped ?

It's no longer shown on the front page of the Spektrum website:

Re: Introduction and a couple of questions

> Do I need a channel also for the sound module and the smoker? The recoil is controlled by the Audio Module, so number 5 on your list should become the sound control channel. The Smoker power is supplied by the Motion Control Module but is not switchable from the transmitter. You would need to add ...

Re: Mark IV Colour

It's interesting that the upper picture in that original thread looks distinctly brown to me, whilst the lower (earlier) pictures look green. I know from the pictures I take for work that the Auto White Balance feature on a camera can introduce all sorts of colour variations, especially if it can't ...

Re: 3D printed Sherman track links

This is the first attempt at the T49 link, thrashed out in PLA on the medium quality setting.

I still have to add the end plates and find some way to round off the ends of the treads.

Re: Tiger 131 turret rotation issue

Have you been through the ESC set up procedure ?

Could it be the ESC settings have been changed/corrupted ?

Re: 2016 Audio Module

According to this manual: http://www.superfi.co.uk/images/manualbrochure/Tannoy_SFX5-1_manual.pdf the satellite speakers, which is what we use, have an impedance of 6 ohms. I would wire them in series as per your diagram and see whether they are loud enough for you. The amplifier chip is the Maxim 9...
