Thread: Eduard zoom PE

Hi Bob

As Dave has already said the Zoom sets are just the more vital replacement parts.

Considering how many parts in a larger set are "fret fillers" and either unnecessary or inferior to the kit parts, there's a good argument for only using Zoom sets or whatever's similar from other manufacturers.

I'm in the same boat regarding retinopathy Dave, buf I should be ok after the op.

Regarding the books, all three came to 40 quid from Veteranus Models in Ripon.

Not really had a chance to read through yet.

I'm having real problems with my vision - a bleed in my left eye and cataracts in both- are making anything difficult right now.

I'm scheduled for surgery at the end of November, but until then it's dark glasses or rooms with the lights off.

However if it's anything like the Tankograd books I have already it should be good.

In line with my change of interest in what I build, there's been a change in my reading literature.

To that end these volumes from Tankograd Books arrived.

Beautifully executed

Some seriously impressive work here.

I know a picture paints a thousand words, but a little information about what we're looking at would be great.

I remember as a kid watching a film from BICC about the construction of the suspension cables for (I think but could be wrong) the Humber Bridge

Regarding the tow cable issue.

I bought a couple of reels of transformer winding conductor from one of the electronics suppliers a few years ago and twist my own.

Cheap and you get exactly what you want, especially as not all cables twist in the same direction.

I'm not surprised at the level of interest, I've not seen a blog of this done yet.

25/10/2017 21:09:48
What you haven't finished it yet????

No worries Allen

RoB's M60A3 blog was brilliant on its own, but the personal recollections of Robin and the others made it even better.

25/10/2017 16:05:22
My apologies Allen, I didn't realise you had so much relevant experience of this set-up.

I read online that when these were used in the Gulf there were concerns over the M9's lack of firepower.

To that end the procedure was for a Bradley to provide fire support just in case.

Double blog??????

I was hoping you were going to blog this.

Sitting comfortably

I have the M9 ACE, which gets my award for stupid design feature.
A working operators hatch that opens onto a solid roof panel with no opening. I rafher fancy scratching an interior, but the level of surgery will be great.

Nice stuff Dave

I'm assuming that the ATGM units retract down into the hull, as in film shot during the Victory Parades show them wobbling alarmingly on the cobbles.

Soldering was something I used to teach at BAE...

I would be very happy with that level of workmanship.

My workshop was a very tidy and organised environment.

But a totally rubbish 18 months of trials and tribulations resulted in it becoming a dumping ground for a lot of rubbish, none of it mine.

Now that things are reaching my usual level of abnormality I can now sort things out.

The original plan was to rip out the built-in wardrobes, but Carolyn pointed out that they would make good workstations so some new shelving is on the way.
