Hi and thanks, not really had a chance to find out yet, but based on my Tiger 1 I think around 30 mins would be right.

When you oil/lube that gearbox on the Sherman, make sure you drop (take off) the transmission/nose cover and get some oil on those axles/bearings too! Oiling it this way misses those critical areas and that is where you will have most of your gearbox failures.

Also it's a good practice to "break in" that gearbox FIRST, before using it. Pulling it out of the tank and setting it in some oil while running the gears will cut down on the noise too. This will make the gearbox last longer, sound better and decrease battery usage too.

And the turret ring has a stop on it. Cut it off by repeating the ring tooth pattern so that you can use the turret rotation more like the real thing. Just remember how many times you did rotate the turret so you can go back the same way to avoid wire wrapping.
