The left caterpillar is also fitted in the same way as last week

The left and right caterpillar of the k2 tank has been temporarily installed. Adjust the drive system when it is complete.

Default Preview of this week's episode


We have a 35cc four-cycle gasoline engine, the heart of the tank.

We have oil reservoirs, hydraulic motors, hydraulic pumps and engines

We tried to match the design and found that one hydraulic motor weighed about 5 kg.

We ordered additional piping parts for connecting hydraulic motors and are waiting for their arrival.

Since there is no separate brake, we have a list of the characteristics that will appear during the commissioning.

Hydraulic cooling is intended to be mounted on the underside of the turret.

Default Episode 21: Installation of Engine + Hydraulic Drive Power Unit

It is the summer rainy season in Korea, and the heat has come down with a lot of rain. This week, the operation of the K2 tank's drive system was carried out.

We connected the hydraulic system and tested it yesterday.
The results of the test showed that there was a softness at the start, but when the flow rate distribution was less precise and turned left or right, the inner track was not fixed and there was a problem of turning along the outer track.
Although a lot of efforts were made to correct this, it took only four years, so eventually,
we decided to give up the hydraulic driving method and change it to a driving method using a gearbox as in the past.
Currently, we have requested aluminum outsourcing processing and gear manufacturing to make a new gearbox, and we have ordered parts and are on standby.
The video below shows the production process of the 2022 K2 Black Panther made in a gearbox manner.
The difference from this version is that due to the increased weight, the gear ratio will be slightly changed,
so the ability to take the mound will be better than the previous version,
but the maximum speed will be slightly reduced.

Just out of curiosity, how many of the 2022 versions have you sold? Do you have anyplace close to you where they have model shows or hold tank battles? I think that's my biggest problem with the hobby, I build all this cool stuff and I don't have anywhere to show it off.

The 2022 K2 Black Panther is a first-time work and has one built and stored.
We don't do mass production professionally because we work in the workshop from time to time.
However, if there is a model required by the customer, it is produced.
We've built Merkabah tanks, IS3 tanks, M551 tanks, and so on, and we've also made models that the Defense Science Institute of Korea needs.
They also made exhibition models and delivered them to tanks and self-propelled gun manufacturers.
Every year, we display our work at an exhibition held by soldiers, and we have to demonstrate our model at a special event made outside.
In most cases, our work is limited to places because we can travel together at a speed similar to the speed at which tank owners usually take a walk in a small local park.

Since the last episode, the driving method of the K2 tank has been changed from hydraulic to gear, and this is the production process of this episode.

In the last episode, we finished assembling the gearbox that was continuing to be produced and made a shape except for the brake.

The object you see is a picture of a spring that holds the gap between the discs.

The explanation of this episode ends here, and next time, a servo and receiver will be installed to conduct a radio adjustment test, and a field test will be conducted within two weeks.
We plan to complete the top plate work of the body before the field test.


It will continue next.

OMG, what a project!!! How much time and money do you have in the building of this tank do date? Your work is very impressive. Did you design this by yourself? I am a retired machinist, and I know what it takes to make these parts. This is amazing.

Thank you for your sincere interest and encouragement. We're working on this project on a very small budget, and we're taking the time to produce it while doing other things. Our design was designed by referring to the plastic model of Academy Science and 3D drawing data released on the Internet.We can complete it in two months if we don't do anything else and focus on the production of the work, but we expect it to be done in the next five weeks because we're working on something else.Below is the 25th episode video that we worked on this week.
Thank you.

I see you have chosen a very reliable power plant for your 1/5 scale Black Panther. It easily climbed over the obstacle. I have seen 4 nylon straps being used to pick it up. How much does it weigh? What do you expect the final weight will be when it's finished? What is the large tank off to the side, is it a Merkava?

Thank you for your concern.
We also estimate that the weight so far will be about 85 kg.
After completion, the weight will not exceed 130kg.
This is the weight considering the power and speed of the engine that can go over the hill.
For your information, Armortek's 1/6 scale KingTiger tank weighs about 120kg and Chieftain weighs about 130kg.
I appreciate your keen eyes.
The tank you can see is Israel's main battle tank, the 1/5 scale Mercava.

Following last week, we will start installing servo for indoor testing using the wireless carrier's transmission and reception system.

Process wire fasteners (road-end adjusters) to connect to the servo arm.

Process the thread of the load end adjuster

Process the through hole of the load end adjuster

Load End adjuster Complete

Heat treatment complete

Prepare the spring and cut it to the required length

Prepare the spring, cut it to the required length, and assemble it

Left and right steering servo installed

Servo installed for left and right brakes

Four servo motion tests (see video)

The operating distance of the left and right forward servo is set to be large

Connect the wire to the left and right brake servo

The left and right brake servo has wires set to control engine throttle output respectively

The battery, receiver connection, and receiver battery were developed from the engine and charged.

Initial power to the radio system

First adjustment of the percussion distance (before starting the engine)

Second adjustment of the percussion distance (after engine start)

Indoor test drive (see video)

I stand corrected! What looked like four nylon straps is just two long straps. I'm guessing the gray pipe I see in some of your photos is maybe what I would call a Jib Crane. The machine shop I worked for had jib cranes throughout their building and they had tow bridge cranes on each side of the building that could pick up 5 Tons each. Having the tools to do the job at hand is the best way to get the job done without causing injury to yourself, your equipment and what you're working on. I really enjoy watching you create all the parts you're making. It's what I did my whole time as a machinist.
