Hi,

I am looking for pictures of the engine compartment of an M41 Walker Bulldog (without engine). I want to know how the compartment lay-out is (reinforcements etc).

Google is not my best friend here. Can someone help me out?

Thx!

You probably know about Hobby Fan set HF041 already...

Hi Hilbert
Have a look at this - https://www.facebook.com/pages/category/Local-Business/Weapsim-119975015364818/ -
Weapsim in Oz has been undertaking the restoration of NZ30545 for the Australian artillery & Armour Museum in Cairns.

a word of warning - this is a hybrid, it has the early turret & engine grilles, on the later hull. Engine compartment pretty much the same though.

Hi Mal,
That is exactly what I have been looking for! Thank you very much! Now I can see the different shapes (although they are complex) to scrachtbuild most of them.

Superb!

Hi Hilbert
Glad I could help. It's been a useful resource for my own builds - Heng Long 1/16th M41's.
