I was clean up my work bench and going over my tanks to see if anything need to fixed or improved.

Here is the list I came up with.

  • Sherman - add some storage and weathering / add metal drive sprockets / swap SLUs / add recoil

    Panzer 3 - rebuild stowage rack / fix recoil / paint and winter track

    Elefant - zimmermit and paint / add SLU

    Tiger (Mona) - add recoil and flash / mount emitter and clean up wires

    Panther - strip down and rebuild for secret project

    Jadgpanther - fix gears / decide what new electronics to use and install

    Other Tiger - complete rebuild, possible "what if" project


This is just the list for the tanks.
I also have other project in mind too, like a IR bunker, and a CMP truck.


What does every else have plan for the winter?

Glen, the Jag looks fantastic... will you repaint it??


Various parts for my Indiana tank are arriving, just waiting on the donor PnzIII and extra roadwheels from Mato now... I'll have updates soon!

Thanks; no, it will stay in those colours & markings,

It will get some more weathering and some "body work" to lok after things like the removal of the HL external r/c antenna mount an the switches on the bottom of the hull.

I have cancelled my Jagdpanther conversion.

I have run into upgrade gearbox fit problems with it.

The whole build hinged around getting a good quality gearbox in it with powerful motors to allow more effective aiming of the tank, in absence of a turret, since they don't fit. that leaves me with no option but to cancel it.

A turret-less tank would not fare well in a Sherman-swarm anyway.

The Waltersons GB will now go in Panther 103

Winter Projects?  Panthe20

Glen won't the Mato 3:1 version 2.0 work, they have lower profile that the version 1's?

Is there a set for the Stug, that should fit a Jagdpanther. You might have to check the lenght of the drive shaft, but they can be switched.

Yes, the Mato 3:1's would fit the JP but they cannot be fitted with 480's

While the Mato's are lower, the stock motors come close to touching each other and the 480's are longer.

I thought 480's would be necessary to assist the turret-less JP to be aimed with slight steering inputs, so it seemed to me like, no 480's, no JP.

It seemed to me in testing Panthers with Mato 3:1's on short grass that the ability to correct gun aim in small amounts was marginal.

Otherwise, I would put the Waltersons in Panther 103 and take 103's Mato 3:1's and put them in the JP.

UPDATE

Curtis at Immortal Hobbies is sending me some 400's, to see if they fit the Mato's and will fit the JP.

While I was hoping to get 480's in it, the 400's might just get it done.

Glen the 400's are the same size as the stock motors from the 3:1's. Me and Strato have them in our Sherman's and run fine. Your Jagdpanther should be able to turn better than the Sherman's because of the wider track.

Do you think there will be a noticeable power increase with the 400's over the 3:1's with the stock Mato motors?

I am thinking from the viewpoint of being able to pivot in place a few degrees for aiming the gun.

Well, even the Mato 3:1's won't fit the JP, the left motor is too high.

Consequently, that finishes the idea of a JP project.

If shaved the plastic down from the top hull would that help?

No, I'd have to shave right through the hull, it needs an extra 1/8" clearance.
