Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

Vince I made my wheels so they are fully assembled when going on the swing arms. I think in unmodified original condition they are intended to be assembled as well, I had to shave a little of the axle diameter - at least on the first issue late Tiger 1. The bearings were way too tight (ultra press f...

Lovely work on the make-over of your T1. She's going to look better than new! Awesome details you are adding. Keep at it. I agree on move -this should be in Tiger section.

Fantastic work on the gun mount. I love working with brass. Beautifully done.

Curious - was the original turret diameter undersized? Perhaps this old news - but it does look awfully cramped in the 222 turrets without modifying them.

Great work.

Excellent, thanks I will look into his site. I've bought parts from him before. I bought a set of his excellent early PZ4 idlers.

Re: Old 222 in the garden !!!!

Wow that is some serious mis-use / abuse on that 222! I was thinking it was a flower pot too! Hope you can bring her back to life. You will probably have to remake or have someone make some new parts. The MG looks like a gonner (ie lost cause). Best of luck getting her back. A mini sand blaster woul...

Wow that engine looks excellent and nice placement of the speakers! Is that partial engine a kit from someone on this forum?

I'm so glad you are back on the Panther! I've missed your posts here. Best regards,

Re: Me Quad.

Phil excellent looking Quad and 25 PDR. You really put a lot of detail into them. They look fantastic. Wish I could build as fast as you do!
KT looks great too! I don't know how you can work on 4 or 5 models at the same time! :shock:

Re: How to clean my big cat?

Marco As others have stated, no oils or grease. I have had good luck with dry spray (PTFE containing) lubes. They leave very thin film and don't attract dirt. Of course these will eventually wear off too. I also like dry graphite, like used on locks. But both are time consuming to apply. Best is to ...

Re: How to clean my big cat?

I blow the tracks and running gear off with compressed air from compressor before storing them. I have a small opening gun type nozzle - easy to get into reaches of tank. I also use this method for muddy RC trucks and crawlers. I would locally wash the dog poo and goose guano off FIRST with soapy wa...

Uwe,
That simulator is the best I've seen so far. How does it look outside? I like the little bit of after fire smoke - very realistic. Best use of e-cigarette yet!
Awesome!
