Today I built and installed a metal tow cable for the Sherman.

I found a wire cable in my garage the other day, so I cut it down to the desire length and made some end pieces. Then a quick spray with some cameo green Krylon paint.

After I had the cable made, I had to figure out how to attach it.

Now this may sound silly, but the idea I came up with was "ZIP-TIES"!

I gave the the smallest zip-ties I had a spray of the same paint.

Using a Dremel I widen the holes that held the cheap plastic cable, so the zip-ties could fit though.
Once I had the zip-ties though, I pulled it tight and it fit nice snug along the hull.

Update:

Installed new 400 motors into the 3:1 gears boxes. It was a pain in the a$$ getting the pinion gears off the original motors.
I want thank Fireman Tim for lending me his gear puller, because I have know idea how I would of gotten them off without cutting the shafts.

And I only almost burnt myself soldering the wires on twice! Very Happy

I will be taking it for a test run tomorrow, will let you know how that turns out.

I also order the metal drive sprockets and idlers from Mato too. Should have them in time for the next Battleday.

Took the Sherman for a test drive with the new motors, it kinda of work, about half of it, all it did was do circles. Mad

Turns out the axles on the new motors are longer than the stock ones. The axle of the one motor was press up against the side, causing too much friction for it to spin properly.
So time to bring out the Dremel! I just quickly shaved off the nub of the axle off and for safe measures, I also shaved I little off the side where it was touching too.

Everything looks to fit better, just have to screw it all back together and test again.

Those are really great details .Wooden handles ,wow!

I had been tossing some basic ideas around for my Sherman but you have raised the bar and inspired me to go back to the drawing board

Thanks Ed! Very Happy

The new motors and gears are working good and ready to go, I even made sure I plugged them in right this time!
But now my sound volume is acting wonky. Sad I think a wire got pulled loose.
I really hate having to open and close these tanks all the time, it's a pain the a$$.
