Those are fantastic, thanks for the link! Best pics I've ever seen. I always liked that little ship.

Wish I could help, but I'm not very good at parts ID anymore as my memory seems to be turning to Swiss cheese. . .

Your welcome Bud,
I needed those pics a few years ago, LOL. Yea I'm horrible at IDs myself. Hoping some of the old hands here will recognize a few parts. Thanks for the reply.

Cheers,

Joe

Thanks so much Dave ! I have the 312, so I'll go dig it out. I think I have the 223 as well. I don't have the Yardly yet, I think it's used on the 5 Foot Falcon, so I need to get one anyway. These pics are already paying off. I wish I'd found them sooner. I search for pics on the Grissom every so often, and just got lucky with Google, ;) Cheers,

Joe

Dave do you have a kit scan of the 312 t4, I have the 312 t, and 312b. And I'm not seeing the manifold. There's a scan of the 312t over at Ssm, and here as well, but no t4. If you don't have one, maybe you know where I can find one. Google wasn't much help, ;)

Wow, that's a new one, to me. I'll have to look that one up. Thanks,

Joe

PS. Found the kit scan over at Ssm's

It looks like it may be one of the chrome parts. Hard to make out without having the kit in hand. Will confirm when I have it, thanks again.

It looks like the Ligier chrome part is close,but it seems to big & to tall.

Dave

Dave, Yea the shape is good, but without the kit I won't be able to check. It is cut if its that part. Will see when I get one ;)


Alonso, hey, I'll have to dig out my Speeder. I was just gonna scratch those, as simple as they are. But its even better if their a kit part, thanks.

You guys are on the ball, thanks for all the help. We may get this whole thing licked. These are the only parts on this model, so not alot of kits needed. Cheers,

Joe

On the impulse engine bottom in front of part 1 the long parts look like the guns of the MPC/Ertl Snowspeeder[/QUOTE

I think Alonzo is correct Joe. Looking at my snowspeeder kit the notches along the barrel match the parts on the parts on the Grissom model, as well as the detail on the end next to your part 1..

Thanks man, that's good to know. I'll add numbers and label those parts. I always like to double ck parts. Just don't want to steer us wrong, ;) That's why 10 or 20 heads are better than one, LOL. Great work guys, your finding IDs for stuff I didn't even map !

Watching a youtube video from NatGeo and Darpa I saw a 6 wheel armored vehicle that had the same tires on it as were used on the Grissom model.
It looked like a LAV AT so I suggest those with the kits of like machines check them out.

Here is the link to the kit scan of the wheels from the AMT kit I posted over at Studioscale Modeler:

This isn't the correct one but the truck matches the truck in the video.

The part that looks like a tire is from 1/12 Yardley M23.

Looks like I was wrong with the Yardley part.Wombat found the part from the Tamiya 1/12 Porsche 934 RSR.
