Responding to a dead post kinda

There's another problem with gear driven systems, they have no slack in the system. Think about the torque being exerted on drivetrain components during a harsh downshift. In a a belt or chain system, there is some small amount of bounce that is taken up by the tensioning system. Performance suffers, but with a gear system, and especially on straight cut gears, all the load can shear a tooth. The best performance, and guaranteed to hold valve timing, but an extra failure point for race cars.

I got this thing running pretty quickly despite the wait on parts, but getting it to run as it should was a pain, it still had all of its original parts (yes, even points/condenser/tires/brake shoes/...) and was never maintained in all those decades.

all that work can be done by two pilots with a relatively low workload these days on even the largest aircraft.

Let's just gloss over the fact that it can fly and be invisible (apparently defying the laws of physics), let's discuss the helicarrier's flight deck design. Going by this picture, the flight deck is on two levels: Takeoff from the fo'c'sle, straight out of the hangar in a similar bi-level design to HMS Glorious. Landing is on an upper flight deck, which is angled. Given that the Quinjets are STOVL, the need for an angled deck is questionable, since there is no arrester gear and thus no risk missing it and having to "go around". There is also no ski-jump, but Quinjets may take off happily without one.
>> No. 21915 ID: 55fdd6
They also fly F35 B-variants in and out, as seen in the first Avengers. It's capable of STOVL but that design allows for less fuel-draining traditional take-off and landing and also allows adaptability for other non-STOVL aircraft to take off and land as well.

The benefit of aircraft carrier is that they use a more dense medium (water) to efficiently transport vehicles that use a less dense medium (air) which is less efficient to travel through, to carry out their mission.

Putting an aircraft carrier in air is pants on head retarded, absolutely nothing is gained by the arrangement.

Hey fellas, I'm coming from another Chan, and have been recommended to you guys when in need of technical documents regarding military vehicles. It has been my life-long dream to construct a 1:1 functional Renault FT-17 and I will do it in before I leave this earth. Before I can begin acquiring any materials or even estimating costs, I need blueprints. I've searched all over the web for legitimate historical documents on the materials used in creating the FT-17 and come up with very little. Even my local libraries have little on the subject.

What I'm looking for are documents and blueprints that specify exact measurements of the materials used in the construction of the Renault FT-17, of any model. Even a picture of the outer hull with dimensions would be helpful. If you have any sort of material, it would greatly appreciated and you'd be helping someone fulfill their life's dream.

I'll post FT-17s for a while to keep the thread appropriate

I have a feeling getting ahold of the actual blueprints may be problematic... just age and wars inbetween have a way of making those things disappear. Buuut it is likely someone tried to reverse-engineer those dimensions since then, so that might be a place to start. Modeler's forums might be a good place to check for accurate scale drawings; some of the higher-end model kit makers have full detailed/scaled interiors as well.

World of Tanks forums might be another place to check, funny enough. Especially for details of interior spaces, armor thickness, etc.

Good luck! My own loooooong-term dream project is to build a StuG III for shits and giggles and a place to hang my relatives' mementos of being a StuG gunner. Sure it'll probably never happen in my case but it never hurts to dream rite?

"Hayes Otoupalik".
Get in touch with him, he owns one. Or rather the U.S. version, the 1917 Six ton .

Also, I saw this same thread in WoT, and I gave the same reply.
>> No. 21921 ID: d1c8eb
Perdón la ignorancia y no se si el hilo sigue activo.
Pero una buena oportunidad para poder conocer las dimensiones del tanque podría ser buscar modelos 3d ya realizados sobre el mismo.

En esta pagina esta a la venta un modelo del mismo donde encontrando algunas medidas se pueda llevar a escala y obtener en detalle los planos.

Es una sugerencia que tal vez funcione.


Es un hermoso tanque y yo también me enamore de el, pero en mi país es casi utópico poder imaginar en construir uno de esos

Forgive ignorance and I do not know if the thread is still active.
But a good opportunity to know the dimensions of the tank could be to look for 3d models already made on it.

On this page is for sale a model of the same where finding some measures can be scaled and get in detail the plans.

It's a suggestion that might work.

It is a beautiful tank and I also fall in love with it, but in my country it is almost utopian to be able to imagine building one of those
