  1. Thanks gentlemen. Handle...with care! All is of course dry-fitted. Parts... Dan.
  2. Without the background, Hard to see it's a model! Congrats again... Dan.
  3. Hello Pascal! What a beauty. These kits are magnificent, but with your skills, I'm speechless! Thanks for share... Dan.
  4. Glad you enjoy my works guys, thanks! Your kind words are really appreciated and boost my motivation of course... Today, gearbox and handbrake levers. Handles and mechanisms will come soon! And once the armour installed, it will be impossible to see all that! But it's for the challenge and I hope for your pleasure too... Dan.
  5. My fans follow me! Thanks a lot gentlemen! Today, the guests are front shock absorbers (None for the rear train), steering box and his bar, and the very strange steering wheel axle. British engineers are sometimes enigmatics for french ones... Note some Pocher's parts every where! Dan.
  6. Thanks a lot Poul! Very glad you enjoy my work. Today, come back in detail to the front axle. Another mix... Front springs, not similar with rear ones, Pocher pieces resized: And a lot of non Pocher pieces, as usual. About accuracy of this chassis. General arrangement 70%. Shape of elements 30%... Why? Poor drawings/photos reference. Rear brakes: And, as you know now, none in front... Dan.
  7. The quality of those kits seems really excellent! And with your skills... Dan.
  8. J├Ârgen, you are the best exotic cars modeler! Thanks! Dan.
  9. First time on wheels! About wheels, another mix, helped by Mr Pocher... On the left, with brake drum, rear, and front brakes? None! Sorry for this apocalyptic photo... Dan.
  10. Thank you gentlemen! Yes Peter it's the desert fox on the photo, and of course those vehicles was there before the DAK! Sir Lawrence used a RR, not armoured, but it was the beginning of the story ... Some close up: Pedals, and the rod to brake system: Dan.
  11. OK Jo, it's an encapsulated universal coupling, as a central pin to permit movement the entire rear axle... At that time, many cars have this kind of mechanism encapsulated or not, joined side by side to the gearbox. Hope it's clear! Dan.
  12. Thank you very much GB! Your explanations are perfect. I suppose our friend Jo don't read the title and the first post! Some exemplary has been used in WWII in Libya! Called "Pattern 1920", and it's my choice...and the sand color too. No doubt about that: Well, after the gearbox, rear axel... With foot and hand brakes mechanism, a challenge! Springs? How to with annealed wire: Dan.
  13. A come back after a small break, but... Not with noting! The beginning have been the gearbox, the center of all the dispositive. With some processing and adding I used a part of the Pocher one... Simple isn't it... Dan.
  14. I think so, that's_crual_ life! Thanks to my shadow, my fan Ron, Chris and Neddy, be patient... Of course, a jig was needed. Lot of time spent but this time is not lost! Better your jig is, better and easier your work will be... It's a Dan's rule! Well, after destroying the interesting work is beginning. I suppose you see my interventions... It's just the beginning, the frame of an armoured RR is quite different! After done all the new cross members, I will cut off the old supports. Dan.
  15. Thank you very much gentlemen, for your support, with every time kind words, it's really a pleasure! And is it a model? Yes! Dan.
  16. The donnor was waiting since about forty years, here his last place, since ten years... This kit (K75) contained 2905 parts. And, one day perhaps, it will be close of that: The "armour" will be done with 1,5mm aluminum sheet, the perfect size to the 12mm steel in the real life. Souls fragiles, cardiacs, Pocher's purists, keep away! The wheel base is more short... 40mm to cut off: More soon?
  17. Thanks guys! As promised, after a struggle with bad virgin decal sheets... Last try and before a nervous breakdown, I decided it was OK!: During the struggle, details, without decals! Well, next? I have a question for our moderators. It's a car, but an armoured car. May I stay here or I must jump to armoured forum? It's as usual, a curiosity. 1/8 scale of course, the donor Pocher of course, a Phantom (K75) chassis re-visited as a Silver Ghost to install on a sort of light tank: Thanks to all my fans, and all the visitors... Dan.
  18. Hi Noel, and thanks for your comment. Just for you if I understand correctly your answer, but tomorrow, Indian, more... It's just an Unimat dividing head: And an home made piece, for clamping on every vice: Dan.
  19. My God, I'm unmasked! Poul is right, I'm sorry guys... But let's me finished this motorbike, for the summer... Thank you very much! I'm waiting for a virgin white decal sheet, a very big one(!) so you can see the result, with a piece of paper: Not easy to shoot! Last post I forgot to show you the other side... Dan.
  20. Thanks Chris! It will be an INDIAN CHIEF soon... Dan.
  21. Hi Manu and thanks! Those are electrical parts: uninsulated sleeves. But my dealer, sorry I d'ont remember... It's time for wheels and more chromed parts: Of course, it's ridiculous to spend lot of time with the spoked rims as you can see... In front, the view will be larger, a bit! But It was my real challenge. Dan.
  22. Thank ou very much gentlemen! Your support is really motivating. To Andy, both may be... It's an huge compliment Sir! The "system" understood, remember... Of course a jig is needed: Halfway! Dan.
  23. Thank you very much gentlemen, you know that: without my lathe and my mill, I'm nothing! After have been done that*, I thought know what rims and spokes are, I was wrong! Car's spoked rims are not the same as motorcycles! But on my bench, there is a motorcycle... Settings has been laborious! Who said nightmare? Now, a Nasa's technologie tool. Spoke trap! More soon? May be... Dan. *1/8 SE5A Hasegawa wheels.
  24. What another tribute! French colors... Thanks! Dan.
  25. I enjoy to see this car, totally forgotten by... french people, thanks for this another tribute! Dan.
