Work In Progress / Re: LVT Project - LVT-4 Cargo Bay Details 170814
« on: August 15, 2017, 02:58:56 PM »
Just had a look through the surviving LVT pdf.

Looking at the French armour museum example, that plate is the right height for a back board for the folding seats (you can see it behind the folded up seat).

It does appear to be present in all the cargo interiors visible.

What we need is someone close to one of them to have a look and report back.

Looking at the photograph (scale is difficult to judge) the three vertical structures look like they are flattened "loops" and the metal panel is slid through them. There is a dark area at the top that looks like a gap. The long metal plate looks like it is slid through the loops and secured with the three studs visible on the three vertical structures.

If that was the case, it does seem very odd as you could only remove the panel with the rear door down.

It is the wrong shape to protect the sides against the cargo hitting it, the loops project beyond and would be hit.

It could be they are some kind of optional sand shield or trim vane, stored internally to prevent damage.

It is difficult to tell from just the one photograph.

Very good.

So when do you start work on doing trees?

Wish Lists / C15TA Armoured Truck
« on: August 09, 2017, 04:15:52 PM »
Based on the CMP 15 hundredweight truck.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/C15TA_Armoured_Truck

Only thought of it because of:

Not sure about how much of your existing work can be reused.

There is also the Otter.

In the surviving LVT pdf there is a photograph of an LVT4 and a universal carrier (I think) at the ANZAC Memorial Museum.

I assume you have had a look here (I have to admit to only just downloading it)

Not sure if anything is of use.

Work In Progress / Re: Neucraft Resin Reworked 170718

As mentioned on the M24 wishlist thread, I wondered what kind of resin you will use?

Not having seen the original Neucraft models, I have no idea what was used.

Depends on the resin (and the quality of the masters).

I have never had an issue with the fit of Empress (ex-Imprint) modern resins and I do not remember an issue with the Warlord M24, but I have a box of various resins from various manufacturers which I cannot summon the enthusiasm to straighten or fill.

Currently rebuilding the track for a Hydra Tank for Weird War, because the track moulding is extremely sloppy. I am recording the process for a later blog post.

It does get the question what resin will Our Gracious Hosts use?

I particularly like the (what looks like metal filled) resin that Empress use for their own products. Did Waffenkammer resin is nice and straight but does not seem to reliably take Citadel Chaos Black under coat.

I assume you mean in plastic, the usual suspects have resin ones.

Wish Lists / Windscreens and windows
« on: August 03, 2017, 03:09:07 PM »
With the increasing number of Rubicon models of softskin vehicles, is there an opportunity to develop a method of supplying the windows, initially as an add on, later as part of the kit.

Conventional moulded windows are excessively thick and have strange edge effects, hand cut windows exceed the skills of some modellers (like me).

I wondered if there was a potential technology that could manufacture reasonably priced windscreens and windows?

I assume due to moulding limitations the rear of the track run is not quite as detailed?

The track design is totally different this time! Full details all round!!  ;)

Yay!

Look forward to seeing the new design.

More nice details.
