Re: sturmtiger build at last

glad to see it finished!!!!,
heavy scorching!!, looking at this picture I think the whole of the front of the tank would be blackened, not a lot or actual pictures show this but that could be down to age/weather.

Re: Quad, Mick, for the use of.

hello all,
PTDC0156.JPG
found these on ebay, simple search of 90 degree spade connectors was all it took, bit fiddly to crimp as you cant slide the sleeve back to crimp/solder them and there isn't a crimp tool to do the job neatly, if you get let down let me know,
cheers, chris.
