Re: Chinese Eye Chieftain

The Professor of Engineering would probably not approve of this asymetry, but the practical engineer would say that is a very neat fix! Thank you for that piece of insight, that gap has has always niggled me, but I now know the reason, and it makes sense.

Re: In memory of Gill Watkins

The news about Gill took the wind out of my sails, She will be very much missed and never forgotten. My family and I send our condolences to Mark Daniel and Sara.

Archimedes is the man. Levers, fulcrums and most importantly brain power! So all credit to Adrian!

I thought it was a syndrome of Turrets, or is that some body who can't stop thinking about tanks.... :twisted:

Re: Armortek Open Day 2019

The new electronics were good to see laid out and to hear it in operation.
The talks were a great addition to the day.
A good day out, many thanks to all who laid it on for us! Steve

It is really worth making a detour to if you are going to the south west.The occasion of VJ Day is the focus of this weekend event....

Re: TankFest 2019

I missed the heat, flames, and excitement of Saturday, I had to go to work, but Friday and Sunday was great! It was good to see a Panther and a Jagdpanther in action but for me it was very good to see a Churchill and Firefly running as well. Thanks must go to all, but I especially wish to thank Pete...

Re: Tiger Day XI

Looking at the Photo of Chris and I, we've been Tangoed! It was, despite the forecast,a good day with a few spots of rain lots of wind and when it was sunny, warm but otherwise quite chilly. A good day to escape to better weather than at home!

Re: Turret Bearing Upgrade

Vince, I have not as yet lubricated the bearing, as and when I think I will use a dry lubricant such as TF2 which contains PTFE beads. I don't want anything greasy or liquid oozing from the bearing!

Developing this idea, turned round sideways they could act as the end to have a nicely raised length of Bailey Bridge to run over?

Re: Armorpax upgrade Tiger I front hatch hinges

I have said this else where as a response to this announcement, but this has got to be a great upgrade for those of us with older Tigers. I have repaired white metal hinges twice, a hassle and a half! So a solid brass hinge is going to make a world of difference. An excellent thing to have produced ...

My problem is that there is a comments box that needs to be populated with something, which is a challenge to produce something that is appropriate!

Re: Spectrum Transmitter.

For those with more than one model, then my solution to the issue of using the Bind Plug with the Spektrum is to make up a Lead to replicate the Bind Plug but instead of a plain loop of wire, fit in a switch. This can be mounted in an accessible place on the Tank, the lead being as long as necessary...
