Rich Stinchcomb has a couple of excellent close-ups on his Sherman DVD and there are also some shots of the Saumur Sherman on John Sander's website: http://www.tiger1.co.uk/vehicles/Saumur%20Sherman/index.html I must admit I haven't been able to work out how it was used as there seems to be too much...

Idler parts

Included with my Early Tiger I seem to have two almost complete sets of track tensioning parts. The only difference I can see is that on one set of tensioner arms (CE0312), there is a thread on one side where the axle passes through and the other side is not drilled. On the other set the hole passes...

Holger, could you possibly edit your pictures to be smaller (for instance 800x600), as it is very difficult to see your wiring with the pictures so large. Imageshack may have a way to do it automtically - I know PhotBucket has. The schematic at: http://www.armortek.co.uk/gallery/main.php?g2_itemId=6...

Dale - thank you for the close ups of your design, they look to be something I should be able to recreate here. Roland - thank you for the explanation of your construction method, I can see now from your pictures how the part was built up. I've not done any silver soldering yet so these might be an ...

Thanks Chris.

I'll have to see if Thomas has something in his repertoire which more suits a diesel Sherman :?

> How was it again that a differential can be correctly "locked up"?

I believe the usual method is to fill in some of the teeth of the crown gear so as to jam the planet gears and efectively create a locked system.

Shermans at War & Peace.

I recently emailed Thomas about the Sherman sound effects in his TBS5 module, to find out which type of engine was used, and he's not sure either. He recorded the sounds at War & Peace (didn't say which year :( ) - so does anyone know how many Shermans have been at War & Peace and which model they w...

Dale, I'm going to be in the same situation with regards to installing the late option packs into an Early Tiger, although that's not going to be for some time yet. Did you need to remove any material from the turret base to cope with the difference between the two designs of turret :?: Will you be ...

Bump stops.

I've been looking at the suspension parts and wondering about the missing bump stops. Vince made some a while ago but I don't know how many people have fitted them :?: Is the jury still out on whether they are a required item or not :?: Roland (Mann) - how did you manufacture yours :?: They look sup...
