Sdkfz 7 very slow build

Post by Paul Wills » Fri May 31, 2019 8:46 pm

Hello,

I have started my first release Sdkfz 7 build and its going to be slow progress I think. not a lot to see as yet, working on the leaf springs and putting the chassis together.

This is the cable pulley, most people didn't bother with this because it was too slow, but I want it working and I remember this mod from my first build. The worm drive was rubbing on the alloy casting, the drive is a wide diameter than the cog, so all that's required is to cut a slot in the casting so the drive can spin freely.

Hi Paul
It’s been a long time since one of these was on the forum, looking forward to seeing this come together.
Regards
Steve
