I also just finished a Martin Dreadnought- style acoustic guitar.


And the Fender Stratocasters.


Perhaps the appropriate cases or storage box if this musical instrument was to travel in a vehicle or by backpackers.

How about the German telescoping antenna mast? I think the Russians use a me-too version, do doubt copied.

You can find them in a few kits, but either covered with a tarp or perhaps in the short, stored position. If one or perhaps two/three sections were available to place it in an deploying position...that offering might show some interest.

I've started on some guitar cases.

For the German telescoping antennas, you're going to have to provide me a specific name and type so I can get the details for it or the segment heights and diameters or radius' so I can design it. I find a lot of telescoping antennas online but I don't think they would be the ones you're thinking of.

Hi Mike,
any chance of getting the handsets as a separate set?

They actually already are available as a separate set. See here: https://www.shapeways.com/product/ST6WHXD28/1-35-modern-handsets-msp35-024

hi all,
with all the new releases of military trucks and tank transporters there is a lack in the market for tie downs,
like dogs and chains or ratchet handles. i myself have the m915 and the m911 to build as well as a scammel and m19 with rogers trailer. there is a manufacturer in scotland that makes them, but they are not cost effective to have shipped to australia. thanks for your time

andy

This is probably an obscure one ... but what about an interior for the BMO T soon to be released by trumpeter, that includes the weapons squad area as well as the drivers compartment?

I don't think individual chains would be very cost effective, or even printable, at 1/35. I'm not sure the others would be cost effective either.

If you can provide a set of blueprint-like documents or many detailed pictures and measurements, I might be able to do it. But at the moment I can't because I have no information on it.

Great work, Mike. Wish you all the best!



Thanks Steve! Nice to be noticed by a prolific designer like yourself.

Have your considered doing an M103 replacement turret for the Dragon 1/35 M103A1? Or would that be too large to do?

I've considered it but it would be too complex for me to model and too cost prohibitive to sell.

Not to mention the replacement hull you'd need to get it correct! Thanks a lot, Dragon...

Wish we could hook Mike up with an ALPS printer guy for custom decals? Maybe some day?

Throwing out a few ideas, well aware that it's easy to have ideas but perhaps a bit harder to find good reference material. Anyway...

Suggestion no. 1 is an M27 mount for the M40 106mm recoilless rifle. AFAIK all the 1/35 scale kits out there include the M79 mount that is correct for an Army RR in Vietnam. The Marines however seem to have used the M27 mount:



Blow up drawing of the M27 mount can be found on p. 52 of this pdf:
http://www.liberatedmanuals.com/TM-9-1015-221-34P.pdf
Sadly I have no measurements...

Suggestion no. 2 would be a detail/update set for the Maxon quad .50 from AFV Club. Again AFAIK, the engine, fuel tank, generator etc. on the Maxon mount was updated post WWII, but the AFV Club kit includes details for the early type:


The updated mount should look like this:





Not sure if this update is correct for IDF quad .50 and TCM-20 turrets as well..?

Cheers,
/E

I might be able to do the M27 mount but I don't know about the Maxon turret.

I'll be happy with just the mount. Pretty nice image here:

After tracking down a 1/25 scale L7 barrel for the tamiya centurion,not made by mouse house any more.
Would you be able to do one in the two versions covered and bare for the 1/25 centurion,
don't know how big the market would be, but there is one there.
