Anyway, Steve. I know you have some detailed info on Crusader. Did you never build those flying balsa models as a kid? From what I've seen you have the plans to cut all your Crusader parts out of quarter ply and put that together on your dining room table.
I get too bored to be a good model maker, and having to do the same thing, over and over to make parts, eek!

I have some plans for a HUGE Napier Railton and I can't get the enthusiasm to start. Lazy sod!!

I still want to build a full size crusader but I seem to be the only one here who does. Bah!

I’m on the case with a 1/12 crusader - it’s 3rd in the queue at the moment!
Where are those plans from Rich?

I’ve had my Crusader plans blown up to 1/6 iirc (I may be wrong on this one), they’ve been on the wall for 3 or 4 years, waiting for me to get off my fat arse & finish my K7...
Light switch for scale lol

How do you fancy making a 1/6 scale universal carrier Richie??
I’ve got the files to print the suspension, road wheels, return rollers, idlers & sprockets, all designed around 1/16 scale panther tracks.
