Hi,

A few ideas all 1/35 :

Update set with fittings to make Finnish postwar StuG IIIs.

Update set with fittings to make Finnish postwar T-34/85.

Update set with fittings (and preferably new tracks/sprockets) to make Austrian M88A1 ARV.

Cheers,

Christophe

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



If you like it in that scale look at it in 1/6 scale.

Thanks, Robert. I probably will definitely need some information on it. Basically whatever you're able to offer...



Send me your email address. I'll scan the best drawings from those references, which are few, but there are good isometric drawings of the scope, its mount, and the suppressor.

I haven't been able to find great diagrams or line vector drawings of the M68A1 gun barrel that I can use. I've found one vector drawing of the M1 Abrams with a 105mm barrel but it isn't the highest quality. Still might be usable.

Start of the M110.

There are some technical drawings from manuals but I can't find any good drawings that I can use for initial design.

For now, I'm planning on a few more rifles and a pistol or two. To start, I'm thinking of a M110 SASS set.



Hmmm... Something I might actually have a passing familiarity with.






If you need any help with it let me know.

How about a1/35 AN/VVS-2 night vision viewer?

Plenty of reference images and technical drawings online.

Well I certainly hope so. I do plan on some other guitar and bass guitar models sometime in the future. In the meantime, I've started the M130 chaff dispenser and have finished the portion that actually holds the chaff and flares but have yet to do the remaining parts. I will have time today and tomorrow to continue a bit.

It might not be recently requested but I'm putting up a long overdue project. I'm making the guitars I showed a few months ago available for purchase. This includes 2 sets of 2 guitars each and 2 sets of 2 guitars with an amplifier. A set of acoustic guitars will be put up soon as well.


These and the carry cases are going to be a big hit!

A camel skeleton, horse, cow, or something along that line, one side would be good.



Unfortunately I can't do skeletons. Too complex for me to design.

It would be great if you spoke to mouse house reference the barrel (s), there master mold has given up, offering them a new master(s) I think would go down very well in everyones interest.

T-55 light guards
Dan



I've had them on a To-Do list for a while. If you can find some diagrams for them that show front, side, top and bottom views so I can make them, it would be very helpful.




Been looking into this and have some references ready. Should be a relatively quick make.

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



There are times when I've considered trying decals but I don't have any photoshop experience!


Quoted Text

Rear panels mounted on the back of the M-ATAV SOCOM!!!
Will save a lot of scratchbuild works and don't looks difficult to print.



They might be expensive but do able. Only problem might be warpage. The M-ATV radio rack I did suffers from warping because of the large flat panels. But these panels would be thicker so warping might not be as much of a problem. If you can get any dimensions and diagrams I'd be happy to do them.

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.



I probably could do the barrel but I'm working with Mouse House at the moment so I don't know if he would approve of that very much.

Hi Mike. Here is a new project suggestion if you are up for it? I have some dimensional details from a friend and will PM you.

Diagrams and dimensions would be very helpful. But the fan blades would need to be sourced from elsewhere because I can't do airfoils at the moment.

I have been thinking about this for awhile and an upgrade of Meng's A7V from Krupp to Röchling Armour plating is something I could get behind. This would be a incredible upgrade allowing you to make all Twenty of the A7V's that were built. There is even a book with 1/35th drawings that would be of great help: Tankograd No. 1001 "Sturmpanzer A7V – First of the Panzers" by Rainer Strasheim and Max Hundleby. Thanks



I'm not sure if the Röchling armor covered the entire vehicle but if it did it might be too cost prohibitive and large to print. The book is also too expensive for me to purchase for one project.
