I found a free Sketchup design and managed to create an stl file, and printed it off. The quality is poor but it should do to go on the gun rack of the Bren Carrier.

I’ve just started printing the suspension parts & it is slow if you want to make them as strong as possible, but worth every hour, lovely design work Alwyn!

Happy to help mate, took a while to get them sent as I have been at work a lot more recently & the logistics reps at home lack a certain urgency when doing stuff on my behalf !!!

Hi Wayne, it's 13.75mm of carbon steel from my usual supplier nickcwizardscx

With this stupid tablet it's a nightmare copying and pasting

Alwyn :thumbup: :wave:

Ps it's very warm in Tours, France.

I finally got all the bits required for the electronics and drive of the UC

I'm not using a tank control system, just a v-tail mixer as I don't need turret/guns/etc. I decided on an 11 volt Lipo battery for motivation with a 6 volt supply for the rx.

The v-tail mixer is the Mtroniks and the escs are just heavy duty standard chinese units

Just waiting for the motor brackets to fit it all into the chassis and test it.
