Re: 1:6 scale Battlefield area in Denmark

Happy birthday Steen! :D
Seems like a day well spent to me :)
Very nice work on the houses, it will make an amazing scenery when finished and with tanks driving past them.
Will the houses stay outside permanently or can you put them in storage in the meantime?

Re: Mick's StuG 111

Looking very nice Mick, and with the mudguards on it’s typical shape is really starting to show 👍🏼

The fueldrum sounds like a nice addition, do you have a picture or link to it? I made a couple of jerrycans to sit on the engine deck. I have to see how that turns out.

Keep up the good work 👌🏼

Re: Roy's StuG III (no. 2020/10)

Hi Tom :) Looking back on my LiPo's, they were all balanced. A battery pack with 6 cells had two main (charge) leads, and six small wires combined into one connector. The balancing connector. When charging this battery the charger measures the individual cells. Over/under charging should therefor no...

Re: Roy's StuG III (no. 2020/10)

Hi Adrian, Thank you for your explanation, Ohm's law yes indeed :oops: You are absolutely right, i obviously hadn't looked at it this way. The only right thing to do here is charge separately, so i will wire in a selector switch in the charging leads. That spare switch in the right panel comes in co...

Re: Roy's StuG III (no. 2020/10)

Hi Bob, I understand your setup, and your philosophy does make perfect sense to me. From previous projects I have more experience with LiPo batteries than with Lead Acid, so I had some reading up to do. One of the things I read on a Dutch forum was that two lead acid batteries which are always used ...

Hi Michael,

Thank you! :D
Yes the mechanics of the character is self made.
The mechanics you see in the movie are self designed and programmed, and were 3D printed.
The four servo's are controlled by a Arduino microcontroller which can be programmed by code you can write your self.

Re: Roy's StuG III (no. 2020/10)

Thanks for all the really nice comments guys! :D :D Very nice setup Roy. What is the function of the four toggle switches? One for sure is for the smoker, and I am guessing another one for the voltage display but no idea about the other two. Vince p.s. Maybe for the lights? Hi Vince, four switches,...

Re: Roy's StuG III (no. 2020/10)

Hi Guys, With the components in place there are some switches that need a place too. I made two casings that can be bolted underneath the small hatches on the engine deck. They line up with the existing boltholes of the kit, so all that was needed were some new longer bolts :) https://rbrch.nl/Forum...

Re: Yves Stug III update

Fourth one, that's impressive!

Sorry to hear about the bad back, hopefully the new job will bring some relief there. More time to do things like these is in any case a good thing :)

Re: Roy's StuG III (no. 2020/10)

Now with the suspension set right, I started assembling the floor plate and mounting the components. I made some brackets to place the components how I'd like them. The power module and the Motor A driver are placed higher up, this way a lot of wiring could go underneath, and the display and the fus...
