    RE: M18 hellcat build

    Nice Job Frank

    Nothing wrong with a stand off Hellcat. I am sure you are like me. Build what you want, do the best you can with the material you got and tuck away all the helpful advice so the next one is a litte more accurate.

    It is unique and a welcome addition to the battlefield.

    Cheers

    Excellent work. I guess the boys are working overtime to have this done already.

    RE: M18 hellcat build

    Just curious, if it would be possible to run Sherman tracks/sprockets like on the Torro offering?

    RE: M18 hellcat build

    The sherman tracks are too narrow to clear the bulldog wheels, they also lack a centre guide horn[&o]

    RE: M18 hellcat build

    doh...... ..what's really confusing is that looking at pics online I see M18's witha coupledifferentstyles of track....so confusing lol.. Anyway, couldyouadd an extra roller without doing a ton of modifications(not nit-picking, just asking), I'm sure you probably already looked into this? I might be interested in purchasing one if you'd have one to sell...

    I'm looking into the return rollers, I too think it would look alot better with 4. I don't think it will be too hard.

    RE: M18 hellcat build

    That Hellcat looks great.....They have one on display at Danville and I've see one running many years ago. Boy are they fast. At the Extravaganza each spring they have a WW II vet who commanded the Hellcat. He has pix of the KT they KO'ed in France. He is great to talk with. We have had them on the RC tank battlefield too. James had a 1/16 Hellcat and it ran great. He is a super talented scratch builder. He did well in battle, but the field was not big enough to make full use of the Hellcats speed. There were not enough places for him to run and use that speed advantage effectively. In IR battle it is only rated as a light tank despite that big gun. So 3 hits and it is dead. In IR battle there are very few if any light tanks used. James sold it after e few events and I have not seen or heard of it since. I'd love to see some video of yours in action. Will you IR battle it? If you make it to a NEAD event at Danville see me and I will try to arrangement for some up-close time for you with the Hellcat.

    Good Luck, Bob

    RE: M18 hellcat build

    I've passed the first build onto a friend and I've been working on Hellcat no2, hopefully they will both be battle ready and we can use them as a hunting pair

    I'd love to see that. WOW...... if you had a pair of Hellcats at a choke point you could be jointly pumping out shells at one every second and a half....that is a lot of firepower focused downrange one point. That is how we run the field at our NEAD battledays with the Jagdtigers and Jagdpanzers. Luckily the JT's are IFA and immune to frontal IR hits.

    It's been a while but the "hunting pair" are nearly done. The fist build is complete and the second hasn't got too much left to do

    If you need inspiration, watch "Triggers" on the military channel. The tank episode spent 15 minutes on Dan Dolan's functioning one.....
