The plans are full sized templates and construction of the replica uses commonly available materials that can be purchased from most hardware stores.

The Plans are for an inert Replica that is not capable of firing projectiles, and can not chamber any live or blank rounds.

The replica can be fitted with motors to spin the barrel and it is possible to convert the replica to fire Airsoft BB Pellets.

The normal home workshop tools and equipment are required to construct this replica including a drill press, router and Band Saw or Jig Saw. The plan set includes AutoCAD files for those builders who wish to use CNC machines or laser Cutter to make the parts for the replica Chauchat Mle 1915.

Model Trucks – 1/10th Scale Made in Thailand

26 08 2013

0Boongern Models (8) While driving along the Highway 304 near Pleang Yao in Chachoengsao, a small roadside stall caught my attention.

Mr Boongern was manning his stall and selling the scratch build models he makes at house nearby.

Interested, I took his telephone number and a couple of months later I went to visit him at home.

These are some of the photographs I took during the visit.

Khun Boongern works from photographs and memory and usually builds in 1 /10 th scale.

All models are made from steel and wood and are designed for kids to play with.

 

I had to buy one and add it to my model collection.

Liebherr 50ton Hydraulic Excavator Plans

26 08 2013

This is a project that has been on the “ToDo” list for a long time, and I have finally had the time to do it.
It is a fairly advanced build, not recommended for beginners due to the number of parts and complicated build. The model Excavator is in 1/16th scale and is made from aluminium and Plaswood or Sintra (a type of closed cell PVC board used in outdoor signs and shop fitting)

The Scale Model Plans are for a static model, with fully moving parts. The finished model is capable of being converted to a full hydraulic Radio Controlled model for the more ambitious model engineer.

The model in this project is constructed with 2mm and 6mm sheets of Plaswood or Sintra (Closed Cell PVC Board) although this can be substituted for wood or other easily machinable material.

Parts are cut from the stock sheets and assembled following the Photo Build Guide that accompanies the plan set. There is no Step by Step Guide as such but each stage is covered by the Build Photgraphs and is a straight forward build for the experienced modeller.

The larger components are made of laminations of 2mm and 6mm sheet to avoid excessive material costs and enables the replica to be built in the home model engineers workshop. Parts can be cut using a Band Saw, Jigsaw, Scroll Saw or CNC Router and Laser Cutter. The plan set is compaible with all modern CAM software.

The 1/16th Scale Excavator Plans are in AuotCAD format and copied in Adobe PDF Format in full sized sheet template and Tiled A4 sheets that can be printed out on a home printer.
