Apreciated your help, i'm building a T-26, and need references for the interior, in specific: the floor-position from the gunner-, engine bulkhead, drive shaft & machine gun

Hi Jesus,
I assume you are building Soviet T-26(Vickers 6t. clone).Regarding interior: A)gunner seats in the right side of the turret, behind the machinegun; B) engine bulkhead is situated on the backside of what Russians called the "under-turret-box"- in other words running at true vertical from the starting point of the sloping engine compartment cover plate to the floor of the fighting compartment;C)the drive shaft runs through the middle of the lower part of the fighting compartment and unike the Vickers 6t. shaft it is horizontal; D) Machine gun-if it is Soviet T-26- is mounted in the turret, on the right side of the gun.
Hope this helps,

Check out the Osprey book series. I think there is a book on the T-26 and it consistent with the rest of the series should have a cut away layout that would be helpful to you.

Do any of you know whether Miniart's 35073 set (45mm ammo) is OK for a T-26 (and for the smaller turrets of the T-35)?
Many thanks!

Zsolt,

I think MiniArt's 45 mm ammo should be OK for the tank version-the rounds for both tank(20-K) and antitank(19-K/53-K) guns have the same type designations(Б-240/О-240/Ш-240).

:-H

Sort of,Jesus...
Rounds for the main gun were stored in metal cases on the floor bellow commander's seat, leaving a "tunnel" for the drive shaft. While standing, the commander stepped on these cases covers, but the machine gunner stepped on the floor.

Height of floor-I assume-was not so important in operation-both turret seats were mounted on the turret sides, they rotated with the turret, so the turret crew had the weapons always in front and in sight.
Hope this helps,
