Re: Mike's M3 Lee #12 Little Build Things

Looking good Mike. That cupola is tiny though. Where is the back end of the .30 cal MG going to go? Loks like it would have to be dismounted if the CDR is standing in the hatch?

I'm enjoying the progress on the Grants and Lee's, unique tanks for sure.

Re: Photographic Perspective

Great Pics guys and really awesome bridge Liam! On another forum there's a guy who uses an interesting technique with models in that he oil paints the background scenery on a canvas. This combined with a belly level shot of the model with background makes a very convincing photo. Would like to try t...

Re: Renault FT17

Very cool project Gunter. I've always wanted to build an FT, but my scratch list is too long at the moment. 8) Curious will the turret eventually be metal, or always 3D printed? Same with tracks? I will be interested how you do the track braking with single motor.
Best regards,

Beautiful work. I thought the suspension photos were the real tank. Magnificent.

Re: From Design to Manufacture

For a basic steps video this is good - I like it. But I am an engineer and I do similar things <not tank models unfortunately> - I would like to see some more details like a bit more on the CAD and design. And actually cutting metal <machining> added. Perhaps show the size of material that part come...

Re: The V2 project

Great project Phil. Following with interest. I agree more truck projects would be great. I love the tanks, but you gotta have trucks for support. Surprised that massive motor didn't have much torque. Really nice conversion.

Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

Hi Vince, I will only use the fence method for the turret. The fence will be easy to fit around the curved back and fill the gap. If the turret roof were flush with sides - the fence method would not work will. The late Tiger has a thicker roof, which allows a small raised edge. The nice rectangular...

Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

Hi Vince I was thinking about how to tackle the problem you mention of weld seams on the turret. What I was thinking of was screw a thin "fence" of alum or brass to the inside of the turret wall. The fence material would protrude up about 1mm above the turret side plates. My turret has quite a large...

Re: Panther 112

Nice model Brian. The Panther G is a great model. Lucky to get one of Phil's Masterpieces. I seem to find out they are for sale only after someone else buys it and its long gone (aKA FAMO). I like the fender bend - looks authentic. You well on your way to having one of all Armortek models. 8) Bob

Re: Armortek Product Catalogue

I love the catalog! Just like the original brochures which I still have - Tiger1, Sherman, 88, SDKFZ 7. Vey cool to see all the kits on one document! Nice work.

Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

Vince The lazy susan turret bearing is a late edition to the design - the first models didn't have this bearing. I would try reversing the direction of the bracket as Adrian suggested. If that doesn't work a notch may be needed. Looks like the engine deck support plate has been notched already. I'm ...
