Re: Pete's Grant No.9

Pete - looks like your tracks are a bit slack.
M3 Lee/ Grant tracks, like the Sherman, need to be run pretty tight. We recommend 81 links per side.

Did you lubricate the bearing?


Vince, there is no need to lubricate the turret bearing.

Chieftain Prototype Build

Update on the Chieftain Because of the complexities of some of the parts, design work on some of the parts was already frozen about 3 weeks ago. The complete design was completed early last week - below are a few images of the design. Very pleased on how this model is coming along! The intention is ...

Re: Pete's Grant No.9

Good to see your progress Pete. Please note however, the Cap Heads for the drive case are there for a reason. There are significant forces at play inside the drive casing and Cap Heads have a far greater tensile strength than the Hex Heads. By replacing the Cap Heads you do run the risk of the faste...

Let us know if this is useful and we can look to do this for other kits.
We cannot track how often the files are being downloaded (if at all).

I have noticed that if I activate the micro-switch manually I can stop the motor wherever I want but if I let ...
