Dean asked me at the December meet what projects I plan for the off season, so I thought I would start a post for everyone to share their plans.




After going almost a year without the use of a hobby bench I'm really behind a lot of projects.
Here is my list for the winter in no peculiar order:

Change motor in Tamiya Tiger and minor repairs.

Realign gearbox on Sherman to stop it from throwing track.

Converter old T-34 to SU-85 and install Clark board and new gearbox.

"Special" Panther project - remove SLU and install Clark board.

Install SLU in JadgPanther.

Install Clark board in Elephant and Pershing.

Change pinion gears on KV (in attempt to slow it down) and finish putting on the tools and paint.

Fix power switch and recoil on T-34, plus finish painting.

Fix gearbox on Bergepanzer IV.

Fix and finish Unimog.

I think that's it for now, but sure there is more.

Oh jeez... ok I'll take a shot at a list.

Repair my Pershing barrel.

Swap out Pershing gearboxes to a spare I have.. drive shaft too wobbly. 

T-34 overhaul & finish spruce up.

KV Clark board repair, her IR is dead, Jim!

SU-76i IR bulb replacement, shorted the old one out ><

M3 Grant Clark installation, rigging and servo elevation / 75mm gun movement.

Panther Clark installation, same as above... 

Tiger overhaul, gears cleaned & realigned. 

Panzer IV motor upgrade

Panzer III aesthetic cleanups 

Chi Nu Kai wiring cleanup and repair, she's taken an internal beating! 

I might order a batch of 10 new normal-sized motors and replace them into my more sluggish tanks.

My shot at this.

T34 re work radio so everything is not on just the two sticks.

If this does not stop intermittent turret rotation and gun elevation than repair that also

also fix intermittent gun recoil (loose wire)

Finish paint and weathering on King tiger and Clark board install.

Gut Sherman and install clark Board. 

  Big decision as to converting Sherman to an M10 Wolverine or keep it as is and finnish it what ever I decide.
 I guess it will depend on if and what parts I can find.

things i need to do and wishful thinking list in no particular order
1) Panzer IV - weather it and get metal drive sprocket and idler  
2) Porsche KT - weather it
3) King Tiger - make metal brackets to mount turret ring, glue every single blood pin in the tracks and new paint job
4) Tiger I - straighten right gear box, repair recoil, fix gun elevation, replace missing plastic parts and repaint said parts, put back all detail parts and paint them, weather it, install bungy cord, parachute, high impact foam and bubble wrap
5) Sherman - buy a new controller and have it flashed so i can use the elmod electronics 
6) Sherman easy 8 - get e8 conversion kit, finish sandbag armor

For at least 2 of my tamiya's i want to get the HL apple mounts and make them work with tamiya MF units since the tamiya apple with mount is $170 on the usa site thumbs down

A bit late to the game but I will be happy if this baby is ready for the first battle day in the spring.

You're a mad scientist, at what point will the government be wondering what you're up to? Wink
