You people - I come up with one and a series of wishes always follow! I should have known better.
Although this doesn’t look too hard to CAD, I am not going to design it unless someone is serious about paying for the work.
Plus, Nikos and Tom, you all are not in the US, and shipping internationally is cost-prohibitive. Yesterday, I mailed 2 ounce package of 3D prints to UK, and it cost me freaking $18 USD! That’s not worth it unless it’s a huge order.
Yeap, unfortunately shipping plus customs taxes from the US can turn a 20$ order into a 50$+ expenditure.
I suggested it because I know the guy behind Slingshot models who has already done a set of sprockets for the various M48 kits and he had told me that if he did it again he would include the final drive housing and use a common sprocket design.
Of course no guarantees but if there’s enough interest for actual purchase, I may CAD the final drive housing for M48/60 - likely base the dimensions off of AFV Club’s. Otherwise, a legit business like Slingshot [as opposed to some modeler printing from his basement like me] would be your better bet. Like y’all, there is not enough time in a day for this hobby.
I have that pdf printed at my desk. Paul Budzik adjusted idler arms and made some holes for track tension adjustments, etc. He also made some jigs using Evergreen rods, etc. That would be something you’d have to do on your own. 3D prints may not be the solution for those.
What I can do is making replacement bumper springs, which Paul did not replace but suggested in his M48A3 corrections. That may be it.
OY? We were talking about M48/60 drive wheel and sprocket the whole time (see above), and you must have not read it. Incorrect, bud.
M113 wheels would be nice to do though - Again, to correct Academy, Tamiya, and possibly Dragon’s. Maybe after M48/60 drive wheels and final drive housing.
