I agree, those lovely great wheels get in the way of the transmission. The differential and engine are later used en masse in Mk1-IV Tanks.

Hi Ian, if your building a model of the Tractorthis model article about theTrench Crosser build may be of use.

That's fantastic. For the first time, I can actually understand how it worked.

Hello one and all, Did you have any luck procuring a set of drawings for this or the Tritton trench crosser ? If you did, I'd love to see them posted here (or sent as an email !) I think I've got a small drawing of the tractor, and a couple of images (attached)

But... I'm always looking for more !

Regards

David Scorer

Love the name of the Foster Daimler shown in the sideview - 'Sloazell'. Other similar names i've seen are 'Otazell' for an armoured car (I think a Leyland in east africa?), and 'Gofasta' and 'Golikell' for Whippets

Brilliant. The vendor hasn't understood that they're F-Ds, but the writing on the back indicates that they were captured in May 1918. Also described as being in the Kemmelgebiet - the Kemmel area, SW of Ypres.

Hello All,

Not sure if these are the drawings you already have, but I thought I'd post them anyway. Using the scale provided, and transfered to the traditional scale of1/76.you can then enlarge them by 217% and they come out close to perfect 1/35th.. or for 1/32nd enlarge by 237%.
Regards,

David Scorer

Many thanks,I do have them and the masters have been done by Ian. That's when I got the idea of the trench crosser. I shall be taking photo's of the masters if they come out OK I will put them on the Forum.

Again many thanks

Dear David,

The drawings are indeed lovely. If Mr Harleyhas a set available then I would appreciate one to be sent to Barry so he can have a shiny new set as I annotated the set he sent me whilst designing the WD masters.

It has inspired me to postpone the A7v in favour of a meglomaniac model of the Daimler Foster! In 1:6thscale, the wheels come out at 16 inches diameter.

Ian.

No, I could not give them up as they are too moorish.

As for the project, I will visit Bovington in a few weeks time to make measurements of a daimler tank engine (hoping they have one on display!) The model traction engine fraternity like gun metal cylinders but I am not sure if cast iron as per the real engine would not be preferable. Those ring gears for the final drive will be fun and I expect they will have to be of thicker section than should be to make them work.

How do,

Latest news on the Foster Daimler project is that I have decided to build it in 1:3rd scale and Bovington Tank museum have sets of plans of the engine, transmission and Differential! Give that they came straight off of the tractor and were used in the early tanks I can be confident that the information the plans contain will allow me to get pattern making.

Hurrah!

In 1:3rd scale, the wheels are 32inches in diameter with eight inch wide rims and the pistons are 2 inches diameter, nice and easy.

For those interested, Myfordboy on Youtube has lots of videos showing how to master, mould, castand machine pieces.

Ian, we’re you able to get the drawings from the tank museum?
Are there reference numbers I can use to order a set for myself please?
