Re: Jeffs 25 pounder

next job I tackled was fixing the buffer to the recuperator slide, on the kit it is joined through the sides with countersunk bolts while full size uses four front facing eye bolts secured with nuts, I did this by brazing steel bar to the four corners on front of the recuperator slide, these were th...

Jeffs 25 pounder

I needed a project that did not weigh hundreds of kilos, and not take up too much room and did not break the bank. I have been working on it for about a week, I wanted it to be able to fire 9mm blanks (box of blanks left over from the 88) so to stay within the law I had to make some safety modificat...

Re: Phantom into Ghost

all the bodywork made and fitted, had to make new front leaf springs to cope with the added weight, the front now rides higher. I decided to make the top turret hatch door open forward, as seen in a contemporary photo, storage boxes and side bins to make, then any small details, and then to the pain...

Re: Phantom into Ghost

took a break from the bodywork to have a go at the Vickers machine gun, I left it fairly basic I can add detail later if needed http://pic80.picturetrail.com/VOL814/8865292/22916331/413903801.jpg http://pic80.picturetrail.com/VOL814/8865292/22916331/413903802.jpg http://pic80.picturetrail.com/VOL814...

Re: Phantom into Ghost

Re: Phantom into Ghost

well a job I have been putting off is the front mudguards, the main shape is easy but there is a fiddly border, so made a start, completed one lamp and bracket this is the result so far http://pic80.picturetrail.com/VOL814/8865292/22916331/413897266.jpg http://pic80.picturetrail.com/VOL814/8865292/2...
