    Looking really great, also great to see these being tackled again, theyre so rewarding when all working and don't fall apart. Looks like you got a set of Mars's acrylic discs these are a huge time savour

    If I remember correctly the long one is from the KVII

    - - - Updated - - -

    It seems you have the wrong KVII (not Zvezda but Tamiya) and Mörser Karl (not HobbyBoss but Hasegawa)

    Just trying to find the other kit in my stash for you as can't remember what it was, John C found it, I think it was a hasegawa field gun of some kind possibly esci but it's def been found. I'll have a good look tonight if it doesn't turn up before

    Yeah the 10/4 is used on the PD but If I remember correctly, the part in the pic is from another kit. cant remember which one but Guy is correct, it was Esci and a field gun. This kit only gives one part for the PD and one for the ISD, that's all !

    Yeh the 10/4 is all over the legs but in this case it's not the kit for the part you highlited

    Lee just txt me on some stuff and said to point out its the Esci 7.5mm gun 1!35 scale. Cheers Lee

    I think Jason has a kit list for the PD if you'd like to share it would be a huge help here for our new builder ??

    Nice legs
    Guy , no they are not the discs I made with yours/group / our diamensions,

    Hey bud, sorry wasn't meant as a gripe at all, just didn't think anyone else would have the patience to do them so assumed it was an old set you may have had, I'm happy for anyone to have the disc info, it all helps to having a better build .... looks like you weren't the only madman to do em in acrylic then :), actually assembled my first acrylic joint tonight after how man years?

    No gripe at all mate,
    Post some pics, maybe your thread is still somewhere dormant, I know I have some pics in your thread too.
    That was my last progress shot of the little legs.
    We should get one person to cut legs for all and another to glue , maybe you guy can put your hand up for this!!!
    Oh and of course some other guy to cut discs, don't look at me though!lol

    hi joe , the pd kit?
    I know a guy who may sell the kit here in australia
    if you refer to the acrylic disc we only did a set for julien, Guy and half for lee, i am still to do mine lol
    there are 30 plus discs , very acurately lathed, i think Guys and Juliens were within .2 of a mm.
    we never sold these,
    if there was someway of someone or a group willing to do the legs for the rest , I am sure Guy, Julien, Robert and myself would be happy to share all our information and probably make better legs than what ILM had!
    One can only dream i guess........

    I very much doubt anyone is mad enough to make the leg legs on mass, it's def a labour of love, if I can do em then most here can , the discs are very specific in size but I did my first set with just stock abs tube filled with resin and they still work and look great.

    I can't imagine how much brain space was used to make the discs in acrylic mars, glad you did though :)

    Right, the legs look like plenty of fun to make. ..aggravating I'm sure... but fun nonetheless. The discs are what I would personally be interested in. They look like they add so much stability.

    Oh, and I bought your PD kit.

    we could make a list of people who want to collaborate in making molds of small parts that can be sent over, I am willing to back the pieces I already have and send them on, we could save costs in our model.

    I'm good thanks Sergio, your parts will be in the post this week bud, I'm only missing a few Quad parts and Lamps, if anyone has any spare lamps let me know as a plastruct order for 6 things is a bit pricey?

    Yep, there are a few other parts in that kit you need for one of the "probes" or sensor/tool things that go under the body too i believe.
