Re: Martin's Elefant

Martin,
Fantastic work on the tool box. Interesting that the tools are latched down -inside the box! German war time over engineering at its finest? LOL

Your fenders look great - that is a tough solder job to add the round bead. Weld beads look awesome.

Great progress!

Re: Mice in a Tiger

I worked with a guy who had Toyota Tundra 4x4 pickup (expensive rig). The rats or mice ate the wiring harness which Toyota brilliantly switched to Soy based from plastic based. Cost him about $8,000 to repair. That's a lot of quid! I have traps in my garage and catch 'em frequently. I didn't think a...

Re: Tom's FAMO Build

Tom,
Your FAMO is looking excellent. Amazing how a little wash makes the small details pop. The weathering is just right. I hope to see this brute in person sometime.
Best regards,

Re: Chieftain build by Phil Woollard.

Phil Amazing details on your Chieftain - simply stunning. I really like the camo colors. Those helmets look like the real thing. You and your team of elves have worked round the clock on this project and it is fantastic. If you'd like to have a go at resin printing (Vince) send me the Sterling files...

Re: My Sherman - a 14 year project

Hi Adrian
I use Inventor for CAD. The grand daddy of Fusion 360. 360 is powerful, should get you there as well, its good software for price.

Vince I'd be willing to give another go at the rifling insert.

Re: My Sherman - a 14 year project

Hi Vince, I printed your Sherman rifling inert. It printed ok, except the rifling detail is barely visible. I would recommend exaggerating the rifling a bit. Perhaps twice as deep as you have it now. Maybe a little bit wider on each ridge as well. I think the rifling detail was right at the accuracy...

Re: My Sherman - a 14 year project

Hi Adrian, You have to empty the vat if the printer sits idle more than 3-4 days. When I'm printing I try to keep a steady flow of parts going on to the machine so there is no need to empty the vat unless you want to change color. The Elegoo "ABS like" resin is a bit smelly, but only during printing...

Re: My Sherman - a 14 year project

Hi Vince, thanks for looking. I have an Elegoo Mars. It does a great job once you get the knack of supporting the parts correctly. These parts are not even printed on the higher resolution.

My Sherman - a 14 year project

I decided to give my 2006 Sherman some attention. Its been neglected for too long. Perhaps I can finish it this year. :? First up was some new commanders hatches from Alum. Along with some resin printed periscopes. Not 100% accurate but big improvement. Thanks for looking. https://i.postimg.cc/x1qpm...
