Re: Chieftain build by Phil Woollard.

Phil Today I made a rough sketch of the body of the gearbox, the brackets (a bit shortened) and the exhaust box to have an idea of what I will be dealing with. I haven't done anything on the face of the gearbox which faces the engine. Gearbox Test v3.jpg Gearbox Test 1 v3.jpg Gearbox Test 2 v4.jpg C...

Re: Chieftain build by Phil Woollard.

Looking at your photos, I estimate that the slice of the gearbox will be around 10mm deep.

Re: Chieftain build by Phil Woollard.

Drawings and photos should be OK. As your model of the gearbox is 1/35 scale do you think you can get clear photos of it? If yes, then I will need four photos of the four sides (one photo per side). Also, very important, a photo of the top of the gearbox.
We'll see how it goes from there.

Re: Chieftain build by Phil Woollard.

The bracket for the brake reservoir and the two pipe couplings on the hydraulic reservoir seem to have printed well. Phew!

Re: Chieftain build by Phil Woollard.

I think Armortek medals should be handed out here
Or an Armortek baseball cap.

This is what I sent Phil today as requested.

Re: Chieftain build by Phil Woollard.

I wasn't too far off. I modelled mine as 16mm.
Also be advised that although my drawing shows pipes with bellows, they are not functional. They are not flexible. Also I can't draw bends in bellows.

Re: Chieftain build by Phil Woollard.

What's the diameter of those two copper pipes? 1/2" or 3/4"?

Re: Chieftain build by Phil Woollard.

Found a photo of the exhaust expansion box you mentioned a couple of days ago and made a quick draft of it. Obviously all dimensions are not correct.

Re: Waste Disposal Hatch

That was probably just to reattach all the bits that had fallen off in transit.
That's a good one.

Re: Chieftain build by Phil Woollard.

Hi Phil Seems you have two urgent requests. One from Ivano and now one from me. Finished the drawing for the generator silencer as per your drawing. The two brackets seem too long but I guess you can cut them to your requirement. Do you want the stl file with the brackets attached to the body of the...

Morris Marina. That brings memories. I believe at one time they were even assembled locally.
