  7. That's too bad Adrian, thank you for the reply though. Sepp I am working on an M4A3...I can see where on the hull the strips were mounted but not the thickness or width of them Regards John
  8. Looking for you on this one Adrian! Regards John
  9. Does anyone know the dimensions and thickness of the steel strip welded along the hull bottom on VVSS Sherman's used to mount the sand shields? It appears to be applied in sections, not one continuous strip. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Regards John

  11. A pair of Matildas on the move

    What a stunning video, things like this help to re-invigorate me, uninitiated people always ask the same question...what are you going to do with your tanks when they are complete....I am just going to refer them to this video and say..."that's what I'm going to do!" john
  12. new Sdkfz 182 / tiger 1 resto

    Personally the "Panther" I am going to try and create will be a replica, albeit with some genuine parts, but it will never be anything more than that. And that gives me a lot of latitude in its construction, the hull and turret will only be thick enough to avoid having to use an inner structure or framework which gives that "movie prop" look. The rest, well we will see, the Russian fellows who built the stunning Tiger 1 replica a few years back came up with an interesting coil spring suspension system...so the fact it is not a "restoration" will allow some real creativity John
