Well here’s the next one it has 395 Pics.
I hope it’s useful to you.
Did they use single belts or would they have used a multi V belt ? Nice start
Nice work so far.I think,it does’nt matter if there’s not much left to see,you and who’s interestet in your building knows what’s inside and how much work you invested
Logicaly you would think they would use individual belts , that way if one was damaged the rest would keep working.
Thank you for sharing!
yes and no I suppose, if a single belt goes, although you have more single belts to keep it turning, they then receive extra load from the broken one … I only really asked as we used Multi V belts on Chieftain /Chally etc … they can still work fine when they have minor side splits and you lose one V section (However, their outputs are probably a lot higher than WW2 engines … just an observation )…
It is a shame so much of these engines is hidden once the builds complete … great work though
Thank you Donald for starting a new one. Always interesting and enjoyable. These are kits that I normally would never get to see.
That’s why we look at the photos!
True … Lucky Don @oldwarloke is doing the build … If I was doing it as a lazy builder (sometimes…) No one would ever see the engine lol
My problem is I tend to forget taking pictures.
I have some knowledge of the intercom and radios for this tank.
Lovely PE work. The gear guard looks great
Sharp clean looking PE work, very nice!
Were the ammo racks fiddly to build and get aligned properly?
No as long as you have a bender
If it’s like the J late model the radio Racks are a pain even with a folder! ,I ended up cheating and wrapped and superglued them onto the radios without making them up first like the instructions say.
very nice , i’m just happy you can’t really see them when the upper hulls on with mine
