Timing gear for Mercedes DI and DII
« on: February 15, 2016, 07:11:40 AM »
It was a long time since I have posted in the forum last time. I have been really busy - my wife prepared hers defending of PhD thesis. And she just defended it. With commendation! I'm so proud!
Now I can go back to modelling. Currently I'm working on timing gear for Mercedes DI and DII (one common set). I thought, that it would be a quick work - I've got a lot of parts from TG for DIII. But now I'm not exactly glad from this sets, so I decided to start from scratch, with maximal accuracy. This week will be ready.
Hope you will find it helpful.

Meantime I've just prepared starting magneto with integrated fastening, next workshop table....

All the best, Lukasz

OK, ready. First of 3 types/ 6 versions.




Two types of front:





Of course valves can be open or close:





Today I'll put it in my WWW, and ordering will be possible. This version if easy to paint, contains of 66 parts. Price for this time will be around 12$, but I cannot guarantee, that I will not increase it up - one part (cups) is extremely difficult to cast.

As usually, first casts are the best quality :)

All the best, Lukasz

OK, available in my WWW:





I'm waiting only for blisters. Theoretically shipping will be from 28 of march, but I think it will be sooner :)
Price is 11.25, but I must said, that it's temporary price - in the case of problems with casting, the price can increase.

All the best, Luasz
