Great video, excellent vehicles. I saw that last Sherman had a little trouble with slippage and I've been having the same problem in my trailer. Was that one all plastic? I think the all plastic tanks don't have enough weight to keep them from slipping like that. I was thinking of gluing some 500 grit sandpaper to the ramp to see if that will give it better traction.

Hi,

Thanks you!

jes, the last one (Jumo) is plastic, metal tracks, but rest plastik.
On the ramps are a kind of rubber.....soft, so it has normaly good gripp.
But the RC system was working a bit stressy....i dont know why.....

So what do you use to raise and lower the ramps? Did you do a build thread on the trailer? I'm in the process of building a trailer for a friend using the Bruder lowboy for a base, and I'd like to make the ramps RC but I've heard it's rather expensive. Any advice?

Thank you, that looks like a fairly simple set up, so it should be very reliable. I might have a go at that on one of the trailers I'm building.

I've watched your videos, they are very nice builds. Can you describe how you articulated the mine sweeper? It appears to have hydraulic pistons that move?


Super job

Hey Carl,

thanks for the words.
But i have to say that i dont build it by myself, i exchanged the model with an other man from the HLPF forum.

The steering and also driving is just the front wheels. Each front wheel had an extra motor. So i use an tank board to control it (Clark).
The middel hydraulik are just dummies.
Here are some pic from inside:

IMG_6396.JPG


IMG_6395.JPG


IMG_6394.JPG


IMG_6393.JPG


The gearbox motors are realy smal, i think n20.
And than you have thes "Kardan´s" to the wheel, but not in the middel of the wheel, it is like the original, an big spocke ring in the wheel and a saml gear at the "kardan".

Hope that helps you, greetz, Andy

Good evening,

sice ca. 2 Weeks its not allowed to visit our playgruond....because of...jes, corona.....

So i ask my wife if ther is a smal bit of earth in our garden where i can play my game.....she knows me verry well.....to long time without tanks and pictures of it.....cause nobody knows how long the playground is closed.

So i grab this smal hill and start with some pictures, last week it was a bit of winter, today run in the time scale up, and end in Vietnam.
Here are some pictures:

The hill

That is truly an amazing field. Almost more impressive is your selection of unique vehicles! Your mine clearing vehicle looks stunning! Rather odd thing, seems impractical, don't you think? And is that captured Panther painted by Frankie?
