The rubber was glued on the wheel…

I could make a pic of destroyed SdKfz rubber… if I had time.

I have started from the beginning so at the moment most of it will be old pictures.

Thanks Schlang, I am. The project is quite advanced now, I am just re-engineering some springs for the suspension and hopefully early next week I will get the steering box in. To see the progress up to date visit:

http://hmvf.co.uk/topic/35947-panzer-2-turret/page/7/

I am sorry that I don't post directly on here but you all know the problems. youtube is a long way behind but I am trying to catch up, episode 4 was uploaded last night.

Regards,

Jon

Morning All,

This project is moving along slowly, the springs have all been made and the chassis is on 4 wheels, although they have not yet had their tyres moulded on. Lately I have been concentrating on the engine bay and cooling system. Yesterday the engine at last burst into life but to my mind the exhaust note sounds too quite, although saying that I have never heard a Panzer II engine running. I have found some final drives that should work but I need to connect to the steering box, which is my next job.

loads of pictures to be found here:

Thanks Lou. I would like to post updates directly on here but I don't believe in rewarding children for bad behaviour and I am damn sure that I am not going to reward the owner of this site.

Morning All,

I have been waiting to update this thread but refused to pay until the site was sorted out, well now we don't have to pay. Total madness, still no point in moaning.

So much has been completed and yet there is still so much to do. I will start with the idler wheels.

Well that went well!!!!!!!!!

Not a tease, in the ss forum they were informed that non association members could now post pictures but I didn't work for me. Loads more to post when it works.

Thanks Jon - I assumed something must have been getting in your way! It will be great to see how things have progressed.

Cheers,
Michael

This time it worked but I can only up load 4 pictures at a time so it might take a bit of time to get up to date.
