Ivano I haven't a clue what you said but I like it very much. When armortek bring out a stalwart it will look great with the L60 in a crate in the back that's for sure. 8)

Please, I have a problem with private messages, I can't open them, this message appears:

"You are not authorized to read private messages on hold."

I have also deleted numerous messages from the mailbox, but nothing has changed. You can help me?
Thank you very much Ivano

Some more. I can post more accurate measurements as the rear deck grows. A question for Armortek please, when can we expect the motors?

A = 195 mm, B= don't know, C don't know, D don't know, E= don't know. F= 10 mm, G= 130 mm, H= 40 mm, I= 155 mm, U= don't know.
L= 20 mm, M= don't know, N= 20 mm, O= 305, P= don't know yet. That's as much I can give you until I get to the deck grills Ivano. All measurements are as close as i get get them whilst balancing the deck on a prop! No grills were in place so those i'm not sure of the actual openings until they have been fitted. The motors I have no idea until Armortek send them? 8)
These measurements are just a rough idea to get you started.

Hi Phil,
i received some measurements also from Armortek.
I thank them again.
The first one, different from yours, and the A. Armortek size shows me 190mm. 5 mm are not few !? Can you check again?
I also ask others who have already installed the tub.
Thanks Ivano
P.S.: I can't publish the received measures, I send them by email, can you compare them with yours?

I would say that Armorteks measurement of "A" will be 100% correct as my measurement of "A" was taken from a propped up deck! 8)

Happy Sunday to all,
you must excuse me, I don't want to offend anyone, but I have to say something that maybe someone won't like.
In our models, we care about many small details and improvements that are not seen at the end. I too do things that for many may seem unnecessary and absurd. We replace the bolts because they are 1 mm larger, we change a hook because it is too big, we want to put stamps etc. Now, it seems to me that we see the straw but we don't see the trunk. Speaking of Chieftain, we asked ourselves, have you ever wondered if the Armortek model is all in 1/6 scale? I, trying to design the engine, and I really hope to be wrong, I think not !!! ??? The first thing I discovered, and what interests me, is the size of the radiator inspection hatches.
They are about 35 mm shorter, actually more than 20 cm. It does not seem to me little, and I cannot imagine a technical constructive reason, they are only openings on the rear deck. I'm not an engineer, I'm not a technician, maybe I don't understand anything! I hope someone helps me solve this problem. I have an idea but I would also like to hear yours.
As always, I apologize for my language, I use the Google translator.
