This section is for builds that are not strictly Tamiya or Heng Long. For instance, replacing the electronics from a WSN or Matorro, or even a scratch-build.

Thanks Frankie! I've been looking forward to pics of your build processes with these Shermans. Those small hatches for instance, now look do-able. Keep 'em coming.

I haven’t got any bearings at the minute, (waiting for a delivery from China), so I’ve printed these to take the nylon bush from the std HL wheel...

Wow, didn't realise how big those blades were.

That white strip with the bolts between the hull and transmission cover, is that printed?

Oh, that's cool. How hard would it be to print that strip how they first were, just flat with protruding bolt heads?
How it was on the earliest Sherman's.
