You mean the two disks as well? I am good, having made my own but I can see them being a nice piece for someone else going down this route.

Cheers

Yeh basically the bits I need other than the kit parts. I'm going to have them made up for me anyway as I need them, so I figured I'd see if anyone else did.

Well worth the while for anyone who doesn't have them so well done!

Cheers

Hi Tony,

Years ago I recall reading that the coil at the front of the gun was made from the spring in a retractable pen. Would one of them be any good?

Anyone else interested? No idea on cost but I'm guessing $20-30

I would be definitely

Finally got a Warspite kit here in Adelaide, so I am going to get going on this again. Work has been busy and I have not had a great deal of spare time......

Cheers all

I have not been around the board much lately Rob, but I am still above ground....

Shelved the laser tank for a little while as I am still trying to pick up a real Tamiya Chieftain at a reasonable price. The clone version I got is OK for parts like the barrel but I have my doubts about the longevity of the suspension in plastic.

It's all good....

Cheers

Longevity? forget it - mine looks as if it's run through a minefield
Even if the suspension doesn't collapse, the drive sprockets don't align properly, resulting is the model shedding its tracks

Exactly, it is more about the suspension actually holding up than anything else. I am quite happy to cut up the plastic pieces as I allready have with the barrel.

Cheers

Well........HELLO Tony!

Good to see you again buddy. If you would, contact me through e-mail or send me a PM if you need the address.

I've got a few things for you.

I know you realise, you can very easily and inexpensively fix your existing suspension very easily since all you actually need are the 3-prong parts that hold the wheels to the suspension.

Truth be told Rob it never crossed my mind to fix the suspension solid, which I assume is what you are saying, but a good idea at that.

I will drop you a PM shortly.

Cheers

Hey Tony,

No, not solid. Still functioning and almost exactly like the original. All you need is a few bucks worth of screws and nuts from the hardware store and some .060 sheet aluminum........and a couple hours work.

Here's a picture of what I mean.
