Hello,

I arrived her while searching for information regarding the M2 Cletrac, thinking of detailing a 1/48 Monogarm model that come with their 1/48 B-24 kit. For what I see, it would need great work to achieve a accurate representation.

An accurate drawing would be fantastic! So I will follow your work and wait for your model anxiously! So, the great work beng done by Jim Baker seems to open the door to the building of a accurate model! Many thanks for sharing!

I had tought in a papermodel also, based on the monogram model, with some details taken from photos, but I  give up of fidelity due to the complex and fidly parts of the real thing and the some dimensional errors of the Monogram kit.

By the way, if doing a papermodel, 1/33 scale is common with the aircraft papermodels from Europe, so, if a commercial model is in perspective it would have great appeal. 1/25 is the scale used by many editors to AFV papermodels. However, the use of digital, scaleable files, permitt the design in any scale. If possible, the model could have some print indications, to some common papermodel scales, like 1/33, 1/25, 1/60, but I think that this would depend on the complexity of the model. I use Autocad, so I usually draw in 1:1 scale, and I can plot/print to the desired scale as needed, or scale the entire drawing/work to any scale.

One thing that I find great difficulty was finding some photos/specifications of the Hercules engine and the fit on the cletrac MG-1, also the engine cover. Maybe someone here have a few photos of this?
