David grays Panzer 111 build

Post by David Gray » Mon Oct 18, 2010 8:37 pm

Finaly got round to starting my Panzer 111 , used the same

method as Sarah for the suspenion arms , next thing is to make

the guide blades like Geof has done , it is a lot of work but as they

visiable , i think it is worth it[/img]ImageImage

Hi Dave

The IMG code should start with IMG and end with IMG. Should look something like this.

I agree, the guides are a feature worth adding.

Good luck with the photos.

Made some progress withe the swing arm guides ,Useing Geofs
templates and drawings from the Panzer trac 111 book , I
managed to get them lazer cut from aluminium, cant imagine
haveing to make them all . Repositioned the bump stop brackets
and drilled and tapped the hull 6BA and used studs so i could use bolts , full 6BA for the bracket and one size smaller head for the guide blade[img]http://i1090.pImagehotobucket.com/albums/i370/tiger019/018.jpg[/img]Imagepg[/img]Image

David,
Nice work on the swing arm guides. That is a lot of extra effort you put in but the results look great. Keep up the fine work.

Hi David,its looking good, although the templates only gave a rough idea of how I tackled the problem, I am glad they were of help, and your arms and guides look stunning, its well worth the effort, and a major visual feature of the suspension
keep the pictures coming
regards Jeff

Thanks Jeff , Robert , Jeff when i saw your arms i decided it was
a must have detail , your templates i think are the best way to
go about the guides given the limitations of the model , the lazer
profiles needed a bit of tweaking but they work quite well

Colin not shore if i can get anymore done had to twist somebodys arm in the end for such a small order

regards Dave
