After much deliberation, and analysing of what we want to achieve its been decided to make a replacement chassis to start with! This is something that Howard has done for many of our 1/6th scale models and although this is the first 1/4 scale chassis its something he's quite confident with :-) Below are a few pictures of the beginnings of the drive system. To move the sprocket forward to (more or less) where it should be, this means a smaller chain drive sprocket on the inside of the drive shaft. Because of the gearing needed to get the speed right, and a smaller sprocket on the drive shaft, a two stage drive system similar to that in my 1/6th JagdPanther is needed. The flat plates support the intermediate shaft. I mentioned to Howard if this was going to strong enough? I should say so, he said, those rods are 10mm thick steel! Looking at the pictures you dont realise just how big this assembly is and that its for a 1/4 scale model not a 1/6th scale model.
