Re: Strv 103B/C

Trick of the eye I'm afraid, as the tyres are painted on, although at a kit car show I did find some rubber undersealant that could have been used to mould some suitable tyres.

The wheels themselves were made on a wood lathe, back in '92 for another project.

Re: Strv 103B/C

Thanks everyone, just the sort of replies to help me along with the project :) I have been in touch with Peter before and he's doing a fantastic job of probably the hardest part - the running gear. Sadly I don't have access to a mill or lathe yet, but I'll crack on with the top and finish that off f...

Re: Strv 103B/C

It's been a while since I've been on here and I've not made a lot of progress with the old S, but I thought I'd post a few pics: http://www.haydn-automation.co.uk/Images/Projects/STank22b.jpg http://www.haydn-automation.co.uk/Images/Projects/P1000486b.jpg http://www.haydn-automation.co.uk/Images/Pro...

Re: Roadwheel deflection

Hello Jerry, I only have stats for the length and size of the torsion beams on the Tiger 1 (55mm (58mm for 1st and last wheel stations) diameter and 1644mm effective length). Maybe someone like AndyR might be able to work out a rough deflection from that? The axles also sat 134mm below the belly of ...

Re: Funklenkpanzer

Funker, I've seen a small version at the Aberdeen Proving Ground museum in the States, about the size of a kids pedal car and interesting to look at. Unfortunately I didn't take any pics of it, but it's not the same as the one you're after. Here's a link to a decent Polish site with loads of pics. h...

Re: Speed controllers..........

Hello Mr B, Yep, things have changed a bit (mainly thanks to Robot Wars), but small RC cars have been running Electronic Speed Controllers for years now. They plug straight in to the receiver and you'll need 1 for each motor (it is possible to use 1 for both though). ESC's come in many sizes now and...

I meant to reply earlier, but I've been in the workshop again! No doubt once I've had a another look at them, I'll have more questions. Biscuit.

Re: Pics and videos

Heavyaslead/AndyR, Thanks for the comments, they'll only encourage me to do better work, I wonder what the other 70+ viewers thought? Anyway, I've converted the videos and they now run fine, so you can either click them as normal or right-click and download them to your machines. The motors for it t...

Pics and videos

Hello, Thought I'd let you have a look at some of the latest pics of my project, including some video clips on my site. The wheels are only attached on one-side for now and it looks a bit like a hover tank from the other side. The video clips may require an Mpeg4 player though, so could you let me k...

AndyR,

Isn't Pi 3.14? :lol:

Anyway, what's the model number on the Parvalux motors you've got? Biscuit.

Re: scale speed calculations

Kieren, Shame about the motor, what make (of drill) & voltage were they? Also, what weight is your model? I'm planning to put two 12v MFA motors in mine, but I'd appreciate any feedback you'd be able to give. Thanks. Biscuit. PS. That track of yours is also interesting, any problems with it so far?
