Lief    Have you considered a fan  mounted in the engine compartment so it can blow 
some of that heat out ?    The orginal must have had a radiator someplace on the

: I am pleased to announce that Lief Goodson's Stuart Light Tank has been 
: officially designated as Tank #T009 and it appears to be ready for 
: battle.  With the 12 month battling season in Florida, Lief will almost 
: certainly have logged dozens of hours of stick-time by the time most of 
: us finish digging out from the winter that is shaping up to be a real 
: nasty one.  Lief has provided some good photos and lots of good building 
: information, which can be viewed at:
: http://www.rctankcombat.com/order-of-battle/tanks/T009
: Everyone should take a close look at the 40cal gun assembly that Lief 
: has developed, which looks like it will be a great solution for all AFVs 
: that can't install a 68cal marker.  The paintball splats aren't as 
: impressive and the range might not be as far, but it certainly makes 
: installations easier and will probably require less maintenance.
: On the 68cal front, Bryan Boucher has added some more photos to his 
: Tiger-1 #T008 page at:
: http://www.rctankcombat.com/order-of-battle/tanks/T008
: which shows his solution for mounting a 68cal marker.  Clearly, Bryan's 
: building material of choice is aluminum and he's an accomplished metal 
: worker.
: Bryan's is the 4th Tiger to be built (my Tiger was a trend-setter!!) 
: which is apparently making Steve Tyng a little worried because he has 
: recently increased his rhetoric.  We're certain. however, that such talk 
: will subside quickly once his T-34 "Tiger Killer" is surrounded by 4 
: Tigers ... oh so many targets, but such little time to live ... tracks 
: don't fail me now ...
