Re: WW2 Tank Sim

Hi Graham, Steel Beasts Pro PE (Personal Edition)is the de-classified version of the full sim. It supports, depending on vehicle, TC, Gunner and Driver, and is used by various Armies as a networked virtual vehicle crew trainer. So three people could either be in the same vehicle developing teamwork ...

Re: WW2 Tank Sim

Hello Mick, While not a WWII product, I agree with Stephen, Steel Beasts Pro is a great sim. WOT is more of a game as it mixes up anything and everything on tracks. However by the time you have built up/purchased bonuses to get to a survivable level, you may as well take SB for a while. Steel Beasts...

Re: Bergepanther

Guenter, Lovely work. The crew compartment rain cover was held closed by two small bolts with wing-nuts. I have a close up photo somewhere if you need it. As you are moving to a lakeside location, perhaps your next model might be a 1/6th Gepanzerte Landwasserschlepper? You could use an Armortek Pz.I...

Re: A 47 years old love

Hi Frank, Just spent a few minutes catching up with your thread. Fantastic work! Apologies for not being more supportive, but I have been unwell so have not been able to do much modelling since Easter. There is a fairly new product which may save you time cleaning up your 3D prints. https://www.smoo...

Re: A 47 years old love

Hi Frank, Great job! I think the dozer blade kit was the same on the gun tanks as on the AVRE. If so the angle of the blade in the travelling/raised position is fractionally steeper than shown in your drawing. I hope this photo explains this better. 1866166_orig.jpg A small change in the length of t...

Sam,

Armortek-Induced-OCD. Hmmm. I don't think you are alone with that diagnosis... :)

Re: Machine guns proper names

Hi Sam, re your 17pdr question. The gun tube/barrel sits/slides on a "cradle", often containing the recoil mechanism. The cradle is pivoted via the trunnions. The recoil mechanism in tanks is more compact to fit in the turret, but also more of the recoil can be tranmitted to the tank structure. This...

Re: My Beaut Aussie Cent

Hi Stephen, Re circular marks on Paul's Cent mantlet. Very mysterious. And we do love a mystery! Looking back at all the photos of ARN 169064's mantlet, it seems a bit of an oddity. I have pored over all the photos I can find (mostly your reference shots!)and compared them with other examples. Some ...

Re: Panther Jagdpanther tracks

Hi Kent, Good point. The reversing of the tracks on the Jagdpanther is a bit of a mystery. But just to be clear the tracks are the exactly the same castings but deliberately mounted the wrong way round on some Jagdpanthers. When viewed from the front the raised bar (with the cleats cast in) on the g...

Re: Radio placement in Befehlstiger 1

Mikael Further to above, the Kubinka Tiger 1, Fgst.Nr.250427, is a vehicle that was converted back from Command to a Gun tank during the war. The Russians may surveyed/photographed the interior and this may show the smaller fittings/brackets still in place in the roof. :idea: Long shot, but you coul...

Re: Radio placement in Befehlstiger 1

Mikael, There is a photo of the Fu5 radio mounting for a Befehlspanther here: http://www.oocities.org/desertfox1891/NahVtdgW/artnahvtdgw-Mountings.html it is entirely plausible that the fitting would be similar for the Tiger 1. However it seems the kit was suspended from the roof, see below "Seating...
