    :D;)

    Believe me, I am grateful for more choices in armor but for a while there it was nothing but Tigers and a few Shermans/Pershings. Now at least we have Russian armor and maybe a few Lend-Lease...

    I'll second what Fury25 said, unless there's a better, detailed thread already showing the process (no reason to rehash). If one wants a cast-hull Sherman, this is about the only game in town...

    I've seen several movies with Shermans in them; Tank (1984) and Kelly's Heroes (1970?) first come to mind. Maybe those are to blame for provoking an interest and love for the Sherman? There was a...
  4. 8 Year Hibernation Destroys HL Pershing Nylon Gearbox

    ...It didn't fail from hard use, abuse, much less use of any type. I have found that the plastic gear on the metal shaft final drive (shaft that attaches to the drive sprocket) has a longitudinal...

    Great M4A1, love your tank and just about all US armor, just something about it. Read someone's opinion that said American armor, Shermans in particular, looked "agricultural" and was favored that...

    I highly suspected this, since I could not see the rest of the boat--but as far as I could tell the 'business end' is very similar for each type. In fact a Higgins boat is much welcome in this...

    Great fun! If any tank (HL or 1/1) was worthy of being called a hot rod, it would be the M-41. Any other tank at these speeds would look preposterous.

    Found a multitude of WWII photos embedded in a thread from a site, of all things, related to video gaming (far as I can tell). These are all high res and of varied nature; armor, some air etc., most...

    Resuscitating old posts! Reading up on old stuff and I find there's no closure--so yes, GREAT BLOWER HOUSING (and cast armor too)! I've looked at enough of them, I should know. This is a Tamiya...

    Does losing the gun sound with the elimination of the "jerk-back function" (it's not recoil) apply to all Heng Long tanks?

    If so, there goes the idea that an upgrade to a newer tank would solve...

    My board doesn't look like that; mine is 9 years old! Looks nice though--cooling fan and all.

    What are "your" tanks like?

    For something as large as this kit and for the sake of authenticity, I would have powered all the props--there's supposed to be 3 so I'd have three props/three motors. It is perfectly feasible, it...

    This is a long shot, but did you ever take delivery of the sub from puremtc?

    I am really surprised that their website is still up after all these years...

    Oh wow, are those the G-Factor props made specifically for the kit? If so, I'd heard that Ernie Gee (owner) has been made aware that his props are being used for more and more R/C plastic model...

    Find the same size as the kits props but get them in brass/bronze. G-Factor produces a set for the kit that could be adapted for RC (as they are just a static upgrade but in brass). Perhaps they can...

    My first gut feeling would be to recommend a pair of 30 mm props.

    However, an old rule of thumb about finding the best sized propellers is to match the diameter of the motor case to the size of...

    I am drawing a big blank on a CG fire boat. I thought the bona-fide, purpose-built fire boats were all operated by fire departments.


    Have you considered the AquaCraft Rescue 17?

    Yes, RR tug obvious from the Santa Fe logo. Yep.

    Pfft. A 45 inch tug would not be overkill but I think the size will help as far as rescue operations go. I wouldn't use a 14-18" tug but a 25-30" tug would certainly be adequate. Usually the tug is...

    See if you can find plans for it and build from scratch. Maybe a fittings kit would be the more difficult item to find. Or not. I think Dumas still sells the fittings kit.

    I never knew there was such a kit from HK. Very nice and as you said, it looks like a Fairey boat, a 28' Huntsman to be precise. All black ones were used by SPECTRE in an old James Bond flick called...
