1/16 R/C M3 Lee/Grant

After finishing my M7 Priest I've decided to have a go at the M3 Lee/Grant to go on the Heng Long M4 Sherman lower hull.

I started with a Tamiya 1/35 Lee and a copy of George Bradford's WWII AFV Plans (British AFv's) which has plans for the Grant.

So to start I made thin card mockup of the 1/35 model to check sizes and angles.

1/16 Three piece transmisson cover for the M3 / M4 based tanks.

So I decided to do a simple chop and swop three piece transmission for the M3 and M4 based tanks (M10, M7 etc)

3D printed gaming objects

These have all been printed pretty fast at 0.2mm layer hight, then primed and given a quick wash (so you can see them better). As they're straight off the print bed they're still a bit rough. The guardsman is there just for scale and isn't something I printed.




US 1/16 scale WWII era tank filler caps.

These are test prints I made for my Hybrid Firefly but they can be used on any  Heng Long, Mato and Tamiya M4 Sherman (variant).

WSN 1/16 T-34 Build

I've posted a few videos of my T-34 so here's the build-

So to start-

I filled in each of the suspension arms to make them stiffer then bolted the to the chassis which has been strengthened with plasticard (I'm using plasticard because I'm trying to keep the weight down).

1/16 M7 Priest Build

 I've been working on a 3d printed M7 Priest conversion to go on a Heng Long M4 Sherman lower hull. I'm using a 1/35 Revell M7 to scale up from as well as loads of images and diagrams I've found on the net.

This is going to be a rough build (0.2mm at high speed) just so I can work out all the sizes.

So far I have got the basic hull done (due to the limited size of my print bed the top hull will be in three parts)-

WARHAMMER 40k - Astra Militarum Taurox/Prime

Even though it looks so ugly there's something I like about the Taurox. The weapons have been magnatised so they can be swapped and I've hinged the back hatch so it can be opened.

Raiders of the Lost Ark Truck

I've converted and painted another toy truck to look a bit more realistic. Although it's about 1/18 scale it doesn't look too out of place with my 1/16 models.

40k Ravenwing Attack Buggy

Warhammer 40k Ravenwing Attack Buggy made up from parts from my bits box. The body is off a GW Landspeeder and the wheels from an old Tamiya 1/35 88mm flak gun (you know the one).

In game it was used as an Attack Bike.

1/16 VW Kafer

I picked up a 1/16 VW Beetle a while ago so I did it up as a WWII Kafer. It's not RC but it makes a good prop-

So to start here's what I've got to play with -
