Re: Rifling simulation and scopes

I see now that the boys need to clean the barrel out properly. Amazing how revealing a photo is! :shock:

Re: Rifling simulation and scopes

In terms of simulating rifling with some type of insert what length seems to work best? That is, how far back from the muzzle does the insert need to extend to have a good appearance? I seem to recall Per mentioning something about a rolled photo etch piece he experimented with. Jerry Hello Jerry! ...

Beautiful job and amazing productivity, too. :D After all, this is not the only model coming out of your workshop. :shock:
I am happy to help you out with storage if that becomes a problem! :wink:

Re: Tiger build

It's a fantastic model you have built, Mark. I will bookmark it as a reference and get back here a zillion times to check how you did it.
And thank you so much for the time you have invested in documenting the build for us to try to follow. My deepest bow! :D

Hm. Makes the results of my FDM printer, that can do 0,05 mm layers, look crude... :(

Re: Fused power lead to control module

No, but cars have a "fusible link" from the battery for protection against wiring shorting out before the first fuse is reached. I am not aware of anything like that available for our world, but see it as a good idea, both to protect from fire and secure the rather serious battery investment these d...

Now, THAT's a warranty!

I got myself a voltage converter that did not live up to even half its specifications. Since it was a case of worthless engineering anyway, I sourced another locally and came across this one: IMG_6443_RESIZE.JPG Although it was more expensive and had lower capacity spec, it performs beautifully. Now...

Re: Annual tank meeting 2020 in Hausen (Germany)

Yeah, what a bummer! :( There is no end to the disappointments this year. We have to take heart in the fact that we are seeing a decline in Europe. It will continue to improve if we behave and stick to our workshops, diligently build on our models, not meeting anyone unnecessarily. We'll manage that...

Re: X51 Stickleback

Ha ha - awesome model! :D I have always argued that model tanks are very practical: They don't need a paved raceway They don't fall out of the air and crash They don't capsize and sink (ah, well... :roll: ) Oh, and the running cost is nothing! (compare with motorcycles, quads, boats, cars and simila...
