Very nice Kevin.  As a matter of interest, did you make a decision about the British Cromwell tank in 1:150?

Kind regards

Yep he did - we can email him (or I assume a PM would be OK too) with specific requests.  :beers:

..
The whole scale thing is no problem for me. If you want a model in 1:148/1:150 or whatever you feel is good for you, just send me an email and I can rescale them for you. It won’t take much time, I will probably charge you €1 extra per models to compensate for material costs and time spent on rescaling and (if needed) test printing.

Hi,

@RailGooner is right, @Paddy ! I will actually start on the Cromwell today and add it soon, I just need to test print it. Then for the 1:150 part an email to let me know is enough, it will cost €2,50 extra for each vehicle that is in a different scale then 1:160.

Hi Kevin ( @Panzer-Shop.nl )

Looking good although the distinctive fairings over the front of the tracks and on the sides seem to missing?

See the following photo:

Hi @Paddy ,

That depends on the version. They also existed without the side skirts.

If you want them with I can make that happen.

They did exist without the side fairings, but the version with the 'Normandy fairing' on the exhaust did have the side bits, as well as having a longer equipment locker on the right hand skirt.

It's still a very nice model you've come up with though.

Hi @emjaybee  and @Panzer-Shop.nl

Ah, well I am not a tank expert so please excuse my ignorance.  I wondered what the huge exhaust was on the back (Normandy fairing then?).  As I would be using these for 1950s train loads would this have been removed by then?

Kind regards

Hi @Paddy and others,

I have a version with the side fairings now drawn.

I do not know about the exhaust and when and how that was used, regarding location or railroad transportation. Perhaps @emjaybee has knowledge of this?

I will not test print the new model for now, let me know what you want with the exhaust. I can take that off if you want. When that decision has been made I will test print and put it in the webshop.

The exhaust on the back was to the best of my knowledge introduced for Dday and other amphibious crossings. It may not have been on much either side of being needed.

Hi,

@Richard G Dallimore

@RailGooner
@emjaybee

Reading on the web, it seems to suggest that the Normandy fairing had to be removed when the tank was being transported by rail.  This was to allow the gun to be rotated and secured towards the rear of the tank.

So, from a model railway train load perspective the Normandy fairing should be removed.

Kind regards

Just to throw a spanner in the works, I did some research on rail transport of Cromwells for my Warwell wagon rake, and we found photos of Cromwells being transported with guns facing forward and rearwards. So, they don't NEED to be taken off for rail transport.

Sorry!

Don't you just love this hobby(!)? Think I might switch to something more certain like astrology. :D
