Its bit of a shoe horn to get it
Lee,
I have mine too, I have it running on the bench with sound and the turret stuff (elevation, recoil, flash) fitted - certainly looks like it will be tight in the hull, so getting smaller batteries than I normally use!! Just assembling the smoke to finish bench testing before shoehorning in!!

Hello Chaps

I have the tank fully motional now. Everything now works. The only upgrade that i have done apart from extending some of the power wires is the 10 way Harting plug. I got rid of the white 8 way plastic plug as they are awkward to unplug while you are holding the turret. You can see the general layout.

Hi Lee,
A neat and compact layout in this T-34. Well done! I like it. :D
Is the 10way Harting plug the one on the left-hand-side of the battery?
Are 2 beams in the middle a stock part, or custom made one?
Cheers,
Lerh Chang

Hello Leth

The harting plug is the one above the batteries, and the cross members are stock in the kit. Although i di do another braket for the speed controller
