FT Tank Project - just have to share the pics
Permalink   


A great day. After years of mulling it over and promising it would be done, the project officially started today with MarkV cutting out the vertical armor for the FT.  This armor is made to FT dimensions from an actual FT so it should be pretty close. As you can see the front "cap" is a biatch and the rear cap is probably worse.  However, this is a lot of progress today. Technically a full scale model.   Very, very, excited.

Something I need to do, need to find some decent scale drawings.

Getting there.....the bondo is a chore, and most of it will be sanded off.....the Texas summer pretty much stopped progress but now I getting back on "track" although pushing that bondo in the plywood wears me out pretty quick each day.   Also MarkV is making progress on the turret now that we have useful measurements to work with.   Still hope to have the camoflauged hull and turret ready for our Nov 11 Air Fair. Sorry for the sideways pics, facebook usually turns them so I assumed.  You get the drift though. Considering the 37 mm flare pistol as one of options for making simulated gunfire.  This military flare pistol has lugs for attaching to the inside of an aircraft or vehicle, "just" have to make the fitting. The fittings are much rarer than the pistols themselves.
