Re: Comet Build

I thought about liking this post, but when I realised how much remaking of the forward deck is entailed... Especially as most of the hull is bolted together! Thank you for this, it shows how to proceed with this conversion which I was trying to figure out the how to. Steve

Re: Comet No 34

The highlight of the Model Engineering Show at Alexandra Palace a few years back was seeing the progress that Derek had made on his Comet and the solutions to problems and advice that was given! So Derek, I look forward to your Famo Build equally!

Re: 1st December - Factory open to showcase the kits

Our journey down was slowed a little, so on our return to Oxford we country laned it via Hursley and Sparsholt on the west side of the City so avoiding all of the snarl ups on the east of Winchester,adding only three minutes to the predicted journey as compared to what it might have taken, a top tip...

Re: Comet to Cromwell Conversion

Stephen, I must at this point acknowledge that this conversion was initially David Skeldon's. What I am doing is running with what he has started. The Cromwell shares the running gear of the Comet and so is a great Tank for running in the 'arena'. I would be very pleased if Armortek when working out...

Re: Comet to Cromwell Conversion

Comet drive sprocket centre cover made me react to the naked 5mm cap head bolt to produce something more like the prototype. DSC_0501Resize.jpg I have now got my Rotary Table sorted so that I could produce the indentations. DSC_0519crop.jpg The sad thing is that the weathering has been lost so more ...

The shape is not quite convex eno...

Re: Move of the turret motor installation to the hull

This is an innovation that could be translated to other Tanks as well, a great idea!

Re: New forum function - "Like" button

Christoffer has hit it on the nail, it is a way of giving gentle and meaningful applause. There are many things that I follow, but either have no need or desire to comment on. Plus equally there are things that I post about that others will feel the same way about, now I hope, I can take heart that ...
