Title: m3 rear armor drawings
Post by: steve-0 on October 22, 2010, 12:15:08 AM
it is reported these drawings may have mistakes i will delete this warning when dimensions have been verified
m3 rear armor    
i have not verified these dimensions myself, if you have an m3 and would like to add comments we would appreciate it.

Each section is 'reversible' in the drawings so the countersink of the holes depends on which side of the halftrack you mount the section on. rear armor is drawn for the right side, so the door latch holes would need to be added and the hinge holes eliminated for a left-side piece.

Bigbadwolf and I verified the measurements today.  Left off are the holes for the fuel tank shell and the footmans loops.  He got those measurements, hopefully he will post them soon.

Steve,
  I printed off the drawings from the links that you posted, but they came out a little fuzzy when I enlarged them enough to read.  Obviously this isn't something I want to screw up.  Would it be possible for you to email me the original file?  Also, do you happen to have the measurements with hole locations for the track armor for an M3?

Thanks, Tom

Bigbadwolf and I talked about having his friend to come over and check the measurements on my armor and put it on autocad.  If we ever do that, I will get a copy and post them.

Any updates in this? I have some steel I want to cut up for various missing pieces, mostly cab/rear.
