Awhile ago I ordered a couple of Clarks recoil kit ( http://www.clark-model.com/eng/index_e.html ) and finally installed one into my Panzer IV

I've gotta say they're pretty sweet. Went together quickly, and with minimal filing and a bit of trimming with my knife I got it working. Direct bolt-in to any existing HengLong turret, strong and super smooth. Recommend.

I put mine together last night. Very slick and works well. Glad I bought 2. The second one is getting measured up and 3D modeled so I can 3D print my own and customise as needed (T-34 mounting bracket, etc...)

Put me down for one of T-34 with mounting bracket.  Mine was all cracked from the factory and have rebuilt about 7 times, and the dang thing keeps breaking apart.

PostSubject: OK. First iteration of the CAN-AM Recoil System (w/T-34 Addon)   Clark's Recoil Kit Icon_minitimeTue Jun 06, 2017 6:04 pm

So the grey parts are the main body and the recoil slider. The green is the T-34 replacement mount as mine is cracked as well so it is beefed up a bit.

Clark's Recoil Kit Recoil12
Ensuring no model interference...

Clark's Recoil Kit Recoil11
Assembled in max recoil(ish) position.

Still to do the Elevation Tail, and the two gears (Slider track and servo crescent)

That's really handy!! I should have got into 3D printing 2 years ago...! I found that you really have to sand these guys smooth but I like them.

OK I understand that Clark's recoil system is a universal version.

Clark's Recoil Kit Recoil11

But can someone answer me some questions? What are the two long guide rails for? Elevation?
I know the upper square part is for centering the spring for elevation.

Clark's Recoil Kit Recoil13

Gears done... Gonna print this weekend with ABS first... If good then we are Wunderbar! Otherwise try with PLA...

Also going to try and make it a much nicer/more compact recoil system for servo... At a later time...

PostSubject: It has begun!   Clark's Recoil Kit Icon_minitimeFri Jun 09, 2017 4:51 pm

Clark's Recoil Kit 3d_pri10
So some simple things first... The T-34 component and the two gear pieces for the recoil set...

Clark's Recoil Kit 3d_pri12
The final items... ABS sure sticks to that bed really well... Great tolerances... Learned about where to add supports and such to prevent sagging... The T-34 adaptor snaps in place perfectly! WHOOT! Oversized hole in it to allow for recoil!


Clark's Recoil Kit 3d_pri11
Beginning the next stage... The Barrel and the elevation tab!

Clark's Recoil Kit 3d_pri13
Getting there...

Looks like the servo gear mounting hole may be a tad small... Will fix that later...

These were done with good solid internals... Once I determine what works dimensionally on the prototypes, I'll try it with the el-cheapo ebay servos...

" .. The T-34 adapter snaps in place perfectly! WHOOT! Oversized hole in it to allow for recoil! '
Plus tougher plastic and more robust design to prevent stress fractures on the weak section.
( Lucky me, I have one for when bad stuff happens )
Thx Big Mike

Did it fit? I am assuming it does!

I hope you're still printing these little guys! I'd be up for one soon, and I'll look over my fleet and find out if I need more...

I have a 3rd generation being developed that will work in Panther/Stug/Sherman turrets (Side elevation) that are smaller in size.
