Rolls Royce Armoured Car

Good morning Gents and the Ladies. I would like to sell my Rolls Royce Armoured Car. Part funding for my next build, :roll: The full build can be viewed in the Rolls Royce section. Please note; I have customised some parts. No radio or receiver. The power/sound/batteries etc. modules are included, a...

Re: Armoured doors

Good morning Mark, I have removed the top plate and engine covers on my Rolls, for a clearer view. From my perspective I cannot see how you improve the door opening, it is restricted by the part EPO520. It may be possible if Tony tries adjusting the servo travel. I moved part EPO522 on my servo arm,...

Re: Armoured doors

Hello Tony, yes, I would guess that if you need the doors to open further then extend the part EPO522 with a similar metal strip. Maybe opening the doors further means less protection for the radiator. Try a short extension on EPO522 and see how it looks . Mick

Re: Armoured doors

Hello Tony, a quick check of the door mechanism. My part number EPO522 is set on the second 'hole' down on the servo arm. At the moment this is the only area I can see that offers more movement. There does not appear to be much difference between my doors and yours. Mick

Re: Armoured doors

Good morning Mark, I have only just picked up on your problem, I should read all the posts, anyway, reference the 'doors' issue, your set up appears to be the same as mine. I will run my Rolls Royce model this morning and check the doors. The only point I would make is to check the 'servo travel'. A...

Re: Chieftain turret turn motor strange behaviour on initial switch on

Hello Adrian, reference your post, just to say I had a problem with my Grant and the new 'red' boxes. As advised by your good self I removed one red power cable into the receiver because the receiver was taking 'two' 5v supplies. This solved my issue. Mick

Re: X51 Stickleback

Thank you John, the X51 is a comfortable build, lots of free time over the past three months. I also purchased a set of plans from Marine Modelling, most helpful. Florian, the hulls are crafted by OTW Design, they also supplied the 'dive' module. They have a website. The beauty of tanks, no bath req...

Re: X51 Stickleback

Thank you Phil and other 'likes'. Ok, here is the answer in the photograph. For the 'flagstaff'' I used a spare track pin out of my Panther build CH0502. Just the right length, diameter, and a flat top. Watching all the excellent builds and enjoying the mixed weather. Hopefully here in Wales from Mo...

Re: X51 Stickleback

Finally reached the painting and weathering. The X51 build has saved my sanity during 'lockdown' , more or less, that and a reviving interest in my garden railway. Hobbies, hobbies, hobbies, where would we be without them. Any road up, Armortek has an interest in the midget submarine, anyone spot th...

Re: DX8 advice for new to RC

Hello Andy, I may have missed something here...if you have the new 'red' modules, the recoil is limited by the amount of servo arm movement....Mick

X51 Stickleback

Good morning hearties, just to say I am not idling my time, rather between 'caring' I am ensconced in my 'drydock'. While I await the next production from Armortek. I have had this model for about eighteen months lurking beneath the waves, ready to pounce and stir my imagination once again. Not goin...

Re: Fitting tyres to solid wheels

Hello Tony, accepting all that has been said, I was able to dry/push fit all my tyres, using the 'back of a spoon' as a lever, on my Rolls Royce. Just saying.... :) ..mick

Re: DX8 advice for new to RC

Hello Andy, I have this Spektrum TX/RX setup. If it helps have a look at my M3 Grant build. Towards the end of the build I have a photograph showing my motion pack layout. It may be worth a look....I use two stick motor control....keep at it, it will come together...Mick

Re: Mick's Grant

Thank you for your thoughts Chris and good morning everyone. With the present situation and restrictions I decided to weather the Grant. It was not on my 'to do' list. I was satisfied with the Grant, as is, and planned to take the Panther, in her new paint, to a number of 'shows', now cancelled. At ...
