Default Gummi_trapz_mounts

Hello
I recently purchased these gummies (I have to clean them) for rack mounting.
Has anyone copied a rack from a tank to keep the equipment more or less as it was in its original location? Is there any photo in good quality to be able to make a copy in good condition?...I have a few but they are the ones that circulate on the www and the quality is not very good.
(I put the photos of the gummies in high resolution so that anyone who is interested can use them)
Greetings

Default Panzer Radio Mount

The best source of detailed information on these is "Die deutschen Funknachrichtenanlagen bis 1945" book 3 "funk-und Bordsprechanlagen in Panzerfahrzeugen" by Hans-Joachim Ellissen. A copy is currently available at Emig Militaria.
There are a number of drawings with dimensions in there and an enormous amount of other information. I am not a German speaker, and still consider the book without peer.
I have made one of these frames after studying all the internet photos and the above book. It has to be close to the originals. These are an enormous chore to make, and no one could pay me enough to make one. Of course the size has to be perfect to fit the radios. Bakelite slider blocks are fitted inside where the radio rests. The way the clamps work is especially unclear. The clamp latches are the same as radio lid latches and are being sold as repros on eBay.
I have some photos from the internet, but they are probably the same you have.

Originals exist in aluminium and steel versions, both as double and single racks. The steel ones have been replicated but due to the complexity they are still expensive. Expect to pay for more for a rack than for a Ukw.E.e....

Hi. I finally got the plans for the racks from the book you told me about ( BTaylor).
As soon as I have some free time I'll get to work. I'll tell you about my progress.

I put the picture of the schematic I found.



Greetings
