Hi all,

bevore I'm too old - I intend to build a RC-Modell of the Radar-Station P-40/1S12/1RL128D "Long Track" in Scale 1/35 with RadioControll.

It is possible that I fail - It is here the right place to report about the progress of my project?

The basic of this model will be the Kit from PanzerShop with some additions from other Kits and some scratching.

In the times of the cold war I served a few years on this radar-station in the sam-4/sam-6 (Krug/Kub) system.

Greetings from Germany.

That will be a challenge ;-) Getting the tracks to function reliably with RC will be a challenge. Friulmodel tracks might work for a time but I think they will break after some time. A working suspension will also be tricky ...
Please post reports on the progress with this ambitious project

Good luck! Although I would not bother with RC, you will have enough to do anyway

Some details hots:

@Juge75

Hi,

I have allready two Kits of T-62 (Trumpeter), for RC a T-34 RC-Kit (Tamiya) ...

For the suspension I intent to use a suspension-kit from RBModel for the Abrams M1A1.

At this time I check the measurment (and some details) of the kits with my knowledge, pictures etc. F.e. the suspension-arms from the T-62 seems to me too short for a AT-T-chassis.

Greeetings,

Andreas.

Hi all,

I started with little work - change a drive-part from tank T-62 (Trumpeter) to 426U (basis-vehicle of 1S12/1RL128D):

Here is the first phase of the assembled lower hull (yet rough) - assembled lower hull at foreground, original panzershop in the background:

Hi all,

between some works I'm looking for the right color of the vehicle - I like the color of the late 70th from the soviet army. It was a uni-color between oliv-green and olive-brown ...

Exist somewhere a online-shop to buy this color for painting a model-vehicle?

Greetings,

Hi all,

I worked a while for the suspension-arms:

Hallo all,

the build of the lower hull failed and I start to build a new one:

... continue ...

I used the wheels from Trumpeter T-62



... colored and assembled with some axis with a 2x5x2.5mm ball-bearing



... mounted with the suspension from 'RB-Model' and placed in the lower hull



The lower hull is set on a board with a track-gauge-profile

Greetings,

Bronja

... as track-chain spanner I use an excenter on an worm-gear to spann with a four-side-socket-wrench on the upper backside of the lower hull as in the reality:

Nicely done. Or in more dramatic fashion: "It's ALIVE!"

Very nice! Even though it at times seems so, it never actually throws the tracks... great!

One thing I noticed though: the two last wheels on the right side don't really wanna roll...

Keep at it and show us the beast working

... no, I don't stoped - I only breaked.

Now I have made the hood-front. The original part of the hoddd-front from panzershop has a too oversimplyfied hood-grill and I removed it and maked a new one (the subpart of the hood-front that I maked is to push and remove it from the lower-part of the vehicle):


Than I maked a hod-front-panel to place at front of the hood:



I assembled the hood-front and the hood-front-grill



and for a better photo I pushed it on the base:



Greetings - I hope the next came soon ...
