Hi Mike,

Did you have any success in creating the Leopard tank chocks based on the images I sent you?

Keep up the excellent work in the New Year!

Any chance you could finish up the supports for the CHU? I want to get your CHU set, but we also need the supports to have a complete CHU.



Yes Yes Rear container supports for the CHU please

I got the tank chocks finished just now. I'll be uploading them in a bit. I don't think I can work the CHU supports right now. I'm not able to find any measurements that will help me scale it out correctly. If anyone can get more pictures of the supports and some measurements, I'd be able to work on them. For the moment, I have a finished render of the AN/VRC-110 set. Not shown is the radio set that also comes with the SINCGARS set but it is included.



And tank chocks:

Well I haven't gotten any more renders of the VRC-110 because I've been working on something else.

I have a lot of photos of the parts and i have the kit to take the mesuremeants? It's a weapon station for a machine gun on the turret for a Swedisch CV9040 C kit ,it's only the weapon station, the machine gun i will order from live resin... this part is missing in the hobbyboss kit, and if you want to build a correct viechle this must be on the turret..



Hi! I would be also interested in 2 of these machine gun mounts. Also I do have a lot of detail pictures that I would also be able to supply/share, plus some measurements. Hakan, please feel free to contact me in case if you do have any answer.

One question Michael, do you do 3d work so you can order the part on shapways that i pay you for the work to make the 3d print kit ? I have a lot of photos of the parts and i have the kit to take the mesuremeants? It's a weapon station for a machine gun on the turret for a Swedisch CV9040 C kit ,it's only the weapon station, the machine gun i will order from live resin... this part is missing in the hobbyboss kit, and if you want to build a correct viechle this must be on the turret..
Can i send you a photo and you can tell me how much you would like to have to create the 3D print for shapeways?

Hakan, I'm paid through Shapeways when you order one of my products that I sell there. If you want me to do design work and then send you the file, that's when you pay me directly. Other than that, all payment for work is by purchasing of products from Shapeways.

I can certainly try to model this weapon station. With enough references, I should be able to model it completely. You can send whatever pictures and measurements you have to my email:
mikesmsproductions(at)gmail.com

Just replace the (at) with @

I may have even created the, dare I say, last advertised product of 2017.

1/35 AN/VRC-111 set is also now complete!


As with the VRC-110 and SINCGARS sets, this set comes with a simpler modern handset radios set included. The handset sprue also now includes 2 PRC-148 radios.

The chocks are not only good for leopards,
all British armour vehicles going on trains are issued with the same ones as well.
How's the Lmg L4a1 (new bren) coming along.

I haven't even started on the L4A1 at all yet.

I haven't put the VRC-110 or VRC-111 up yet. I have to edit and check both models so they are printable.

Is the VRC-110 used together with VRC-111 ? And inside mraps?

I know the 110 is used in MRAPs. I'm not sure about the 111. But I think they're used as separate units.

I was planning on having the radio sets up already after I found out whether or not they were printable from the Shapeways order. Unfortunately, the order is still processing and had been since the 1st. I hope I'll find out by the middle of next week.

I can finally confirm that the AN/VRC-110 and AN/VRC-111 sets are printable. The sets can be found here:

Any chance you can work on the support arms for the CHU set? They are really needed to complet it.

I'll be keeping it in mind but I don't think I can do it yet. There's only a little amount of picture and diagrams references about this assembly but I can't find any measurements to work with. I'll be keeping it in mind though so if anything does come up, I'll start the supports.

In the meantime, someone brought to my attention some corrections that I need to make to the M1068 APU. These will be implemented immediately.

The new radios looks great, will order them when i have a complete order.. Perfect for the new maxxpro dash kit.

Leopard 2 spare wheel without hub would be very nice to have also , or would that be difficult to do? As there are no out to buy... :-) just a suggestion

Leopard Workshop makes replacement Leopard 2 roadwheels. I also can't find a cross-section of the road wheels for the leopard 2 in my small amount of searching. I'm not sure how much different the spare wheel is from the roadwheels but I also can't find any info on the spare wheel.

Ok, but they dont have the replacement wheel or idler wheel without the hub for hang on the slat armour. I dont mean a complete set of wheels only 1 or 2 spare wheel...
Look here on Jason photos what i mean..

I would like to suggest a 1/35 scale turret rear stowage box for the M47 tank. Many M48s, M60's and even one (at least) Chieftain used these boxes for extra stowage but I have never seen one in resin so the only source would be the Italeri or Takom M47 kits. If someone does know of a resin one I would be grateful for any information.

I could do those boxes but I'd need some blueprints or diagrams with measurements which I can't find.
