PostSubject: Reapers Hummel   Wed Aug 07, 2013 5:35 am

Hi everyone, got my Hummel kit in the mail today.... ;D ;D really looking forward to this build as I have wanted one for quite awhile, this one I got came with a few extra and I have also ordered from Daryl Turner a gearbox kit to allow me to run Tamiya gearboxes and also a spring adjusted idler kit. Both these kits are custom made and should make the Hummel a nice runner...... WinkWink
Very happy with the detail and the quality of the kit, its very close to Tamiya quality in the mouldings and its quite a large tank too.

Thanks guys.....

Nice Hummel Tomzag, can I ask how you did the recoil and elevation/traverse in the one you did.

Cheers Ken

Ken,
It was sold long time ago. otherwise i can take some pictures inside.

All gun traverse, elevation and recoil were hiden inside the hull.
the traverse, attach an arm to the axle undermeath the hull, so you use servo to pull it back forth.
gun elevation is the easiest, a servo underneath pull the arm through a hole, the arm attached to the gun bottom.
the recoile is the hardest, you have to drill a hole in the rod which connect the gun bottom and hull, there is a wire pulling the gun back through two roller hiden inside the gun. when the recoil unit recover, the spring in the gun push the gun back to original position. 
hard to explain, it is easier to show you in person.

Nice I like that.
So I should plate both sides and the bottom on the inside. I see also you used the working suspension is it any good.

suspension from kk is ok, but need work to make them not wigglely. the road wheels and return rollers got to be replaced by metal ones. check ebay and see if you can find them. I still have one set if you are interested.

Sorry to hear that Tom, it was very nicely done.

Well Everyone I have done some work to the Hummel over the last couple of days. The upper hull is finished, the gun assembly is yet too be finished as is the lower hull just waiting on some parts to turn up... ( Thanks Tom )
Here are a couple pics of it mocked up with the standard gearboxes while I am awaiting for parts to arrive.

Cheers Ken

Hey Strato the parts in the lower pic are a gearbox plate to mount Tamiya gearboxes in it and drive shaft adapters and the other is a spring loaded idler set up.
I have another set of these coming as I just brought another brand new in the box Hummel cheap and going to maybe make a Nashorn ( Inspired by Tom's ) out of it.

Airbrushler you noticed the box....lol!
