Has the part on the 57 Chev chassis (between the 2 mufflers) been identified at all?
Yes, Tamiya M42 Duster:
God, Simon. I actually deliberated over that one. "Geddit right...HURRICANE not HARRIER...". I had to because I was on painkillers again last night. And I STILL got it wrong; for some reason I just have "harrier" in my muscle memory.
Hey, now that you're the proud owner of a Kettenkrad can you tell me whether it has those two trapezoidal flat plates, about the size of a 20c piece? It's either that or the 1/9 Kubel, and my kits are jumbled so I don't recall which they came from.
I'll check tonight but I think they may be "cut" parts. Also we need a harrier anyway , just not for there. He he.... Damn drugs.
Has it been pointed out that the exhaust cover sitting on top of the KT turret roof has another part stuffed inside it? A glacis plate MG mantlet, by the look of it? (Ta Guy C for the pic.)
Awesome. This will help with my project in 2012!
Has this windscreen been ID'd yet? It looks early to mid 30s. Just thinking the kit might also provide the straight-six engine block...
Amt T- bucket or 34 ford maybe?
Won't be the T-bucket (rod <> straight six, and stock T= straight 4), and the 34, wouldn't that be a flattie V-8?
Edit: I am thinking something more like a '32 Ford Victoria:
Not sure any of the engine options are a flattie six, though...and the screen doesn't have the right rounded lower corners.

Maybe the 37 chevy pickup.
Gonna be casting up some inside mandible sets this weekend if any body is interested.
Not sure if this was yet posted. In case not, yet more Sealab:
These are two of the main frames of Sealab, back to back. The arms that go around the habitat are trimmed off (those are used as the angle braces on the corners of the docking rings, but that part is well known).
This is starboard side only - the upper piece has a flange on the right for equipment to attach to. The port side uses two of the lower type. (Edit: no, there is one of each type on both sides of the ship. No idea why I thought that.)
Edit, here's the piece itself:

wow, good eye.
Thanks Martyn. Yes, I think those are noted on the part map but thanks for clarifying which part is used where. I'm trying to note all the Sealab parts for Jason/Mike S's little project . I recall you also spotted another Sealab part on the underside of the mandible next to the cockpit.
Also, regarding the parts you've noted here, check out the forward central landing gear housing. Looks like another use of one of these right in front of the tank deck.
Also, one of the SL pair of parts used on the sides of the docking ring housings ( the outer most part with no hole) is also used twice ( slightly chopped) to form the outside edge of the landing ramp. ie the part which sits on the ground when its dropped open. Check'em out and see if I'm right? Not at my home pc so can't post pics at the mo'
Cheers Nick. Yeah, the parts are coloured on the map - in the same shade as the Hanomag and Sherman bits - but lack annotations. (Unless I've missed the right update.) I figured you'd know what they were, though. IIRC I came across a couple more the other night, but can't recall where offhand - will do some more reviewing.
My Sealab is a bit of a disaster zone as you see. If Jason and Mike don't want to cut original parts, I'm happy to sacrifice mine - can mould Falcon-specific pre-trimmed bits.
Martyn the other day you mentioned another location for the pontoon. Was that on top of the wankel engine? There is also a few kettengrad parts down the starboard mandible that I should get cast up this weekend.
Nick, yeah, it's the same part at the landing gear housing. It's been cut in half in this case and the two halves are separated by another part.
PS yes - talk about a good eye - you're correct, the lower end of the ramp has two parts 24 side by side, both trimmed. The aft one is trimmed of about a third of an inch, the forward one just has a small tab taken off. Great scaling detail.
Simon, no not the thing sitting on top of the Wankel engine by the cockpit - that looks like a cockpit floor to me - Lancaster?
The bits I was thinking of were something else, didn't pan out.
Ahh yeah... Looking at it from a different angle it is a cockpit floor. 1/72 or 1/48. Definitely a bomber too. Maybe a lanc or b/17 , I'll check me planes tonight.
Doesn't seem to be Lanc. It probably pushes the kitlist to 92, whatever it is.

If you guys are talking about this piece, that's from the Hanomag.
That explains it... I have one on order. Thankyou very much.
DOH. Thanks! Well I'm an idiot then.
I have a quick question;
Has the kitparts inside the six engine vents been identified? They look like some sort of turbine with a round disc on top.
