Thanks guys, Steen the batteries are not large ah but fit nicely in that area as you can see, the run time will be interesting when I get chance ( and some good weather) to see just how long they last, with the new high efficiency motors and the newer esc's this should be more than enough for this build, we are not using a smoke machine either, now high tech batteries ( I'm not keen on using those) would be very long lasting for the given space, so if your going to need long run times at shows maybe go for the latter.
If I were you guys I would have piggy back deck batteries until I was ready for what ever you are up to, removing them when you are about to start your war games ect.
Andy the extruders are for sale on eBay but not good quality so get two. They sure do speed up the process somewhat although I did make an even smaller extrusion hole as the stock ones can still be a bit to big.
A tip, keep the extruder in your pocket just before and inbetween sausage making as the warmth makes it some much more malleable.

Hi Phil, I'm glad you like my engine
I'm sorry but I don't understand what you need, send me photos or drawings, everything I've produced for the engine, I can supply it.
It only takes a little time to produce it, I don't store, as I have already written, I only produce on order. I hope to see the completed engine soon and read your comments. I hope you understand what I wrote Thank you very much Ivano

Ivano your Maybach is great there's so much hidden detail. It's just the fan drive attachment to the engine that I am not sure of.

Slow progress as it's so fiddly.
So not much to show really, prepping small parts and trying to work out what goes where and which way round but its coming along nicely. As it gets bigger it's becoming more difficult to shoe horn in and out of the engine bay. Oh and drilling my thumb! :shock:

Be careful with these very small drill bits as they are like needles!

It's getting very tricky getting the engine in and out now to work on the detail.

A quick update, all ready now for the fuel system and carburetors, I've been up most of the night sneezing due to the cyno based adhesive, it's plays havoc with my nasal passages especially after a full day in the workshop exposed to the dam stuff. :roll:

There's so much that you are never going to see but it's nice to know it's there all the same.
IMG_20190813_162913017.jpg
Lovely kit very accurate just a bugger to put together as the instructions are photos often in no particular order.

So now onto the fuel pumps, carbs, fuel lines, throttle linkage, air cleaners and many many small detail bolts, nuts and screws.

It does look impressive and will look even better when it's finished.

Update on the Maybach saga.

There's around 60 threaded fixings involved in the inlet manifold alone.

Not sure what the blue 3d printed piece is but it's in between the filters and the carbs.

The fuel sediment filters and fuel lines going in.I use heat shrink on the fuel line joints to hold everything in place before joining together permanently

Spot the difference!

That engine looks very good you could have one of these as a standalone model.
The Blue part was used to prime the carbs if the tank had been stood even overnight a few pumps helped fill the carbs with fuel ready for running.

Excellent assembly, very precise and detailed.
It seems to me that the editing you enjoyed, not extremely difficult, you just need a lot of patience and look carefully at the photographs of the real engine. I like it very much, BRAVO! If you need information, just ask me, it will be a pleasure to answer you.
I hope other modelers will want to build one, it is not an impossible task. Congratulations again, Ivano

Thanks Ivano, I'm not going to pretend that it is easy as it's not, you have to think alot, read alot,research alot and stick alot but what a superb Maybach model you have at the end!
Well as I still have not finished I now need to add the air filter catches and the decals, I have started the weathering process after painting in a base coat of German grey.
The engine will come to life when the decals are screwed in place.

From shinny to shitty but that's what we like!
IMG_20190817_081338394.jpg
I'm not going into to much detail of the weathering process as we all do it differently, the first of the underlying rust washes goes on now, many more will be added but these initial washes will go deep into the nooks and crannies.
IMG_20190817_081354834.jpg
Some dirty black washes added, rubbed off then added again.
IMG_20190817_081413217.jpg
The air filters will be done separately.
IMG_20190817_081431497.jpg
Boy these catches are delicate!
IMG_20190817_081453861.jpg
More browns and black washes left to build up in the recesses, then rubbed back. Basically if you cant get to clean that area then nor could the crew member detailed to keep the engine clean prior to maintenance.
IMG_20190817_081846276.jpg
14 of these to bend up and fix.
