Pawel, looking good! I appoligize for not thinking about toadman's pictures sooner. If you look around his site, you'll find alot more pictures of what you need. Can't wait for this to all come together.

Hello Ray!

Thanks again! Toadman's page turned out to be just the resource I needed. Can't model just off the TM drawings, they are too unreliable for this when it comes to proportions. The photos complement those drawings very nicely.

I think I'll move to the vertical ready rounds now.

Have a nice day

Hello!

Thanks a lot for your kind words!

Yes, the idea is to 3D print the whole thing, so that my modellers friends can also use my work for their models.

Have a nice day

Hello!

I have just completed a set like this:

1:35 105mm tank ammo by Pawel

It would let you equip the ready rack in a Patton model with two rounds to spare. The bigger rounds can be painted to represent the M416 WP-T (smoke) round or the M393 HEP-T (squash head) round. The smaller rounds are sabot - like the M392.

Now I'll try to work on the ready rack (vertical storage)

Thanks for lookin' and have a nice day

Hello everybody!

I just started drawing the brackets for the ready rounds:

It might look a bit rough on the drawing, but we're moving closer and closer to the limits of printability here - the round wires above have the diameter of 0,6mm, and the whole structure isn't supported very well (the shells will come separate to facilitate painting of it all). I'd like to ask for your comments here, especially if you think some important detail is missing on the picture.

Thanks for lookin' and have a nice day

Your passion for the subject matter really shines through in your renderings, Pawel. Looking forward to seeing the final product, because if these images are any indication of what is to come, it should be stunning!

Knight, Mike - thanks a lot for your comments and for your kind words! I'm itching to get something printed at last. Let's see when will that be. Thanks again and have a nice day!

Pawel, your attention to detail is outstanding! About all you need left to do is the range finder, slip ring and ammo rack located behind the loaders position. If it was me, I'd just print out the 13 round ready rack with the rounds already installed. After all, all you will be able to see is through the loaders hatch. The slip ring is the round box located in front and to the right of the 3 round ready rack on the turret floor.

 Here is a picture of what I was talking about with the slip ring. The slip ring is what transfered power from the hull to the turret. Round box with a square cover located in front of the sight box.

Gino, Ray - thanks a lot for your kind words. Thay mean a lot to me!

Ray - got you on the slip ring. I also plan to draw the gunner's seat and his footrest. Some drawings and photos got me wondering: Was the gunner seated facing directly forward, or was his seat slightly angled towards the centerline of the tank? Thanks a lot for the picture, you can never have too many of them on a project like this.

Thanks again and have a nice day
