Re: Jeffs 25 pounder

Whilst studying photos of the barrel locking arm, it was clear that the axle cover plate extended further rearwards and was of a box section, and as I wanted to use smaller rivets I replaced the kit part http://pic80.picturetrail.com/VOL814/8865292/22916331/414019782.jpg http://pic80.picturetrail.co...

Re: Jeffs 25 pounder

A bit more done after a short break, I thought I would make a working barrel steady / lock, constructed from brass

Re: 222 Renovation

That looks good Adrian, I am not a fan of aluminium in model making, but seeing how good your repair is might convince me otherwise, the 222 is a great project to work on

Re: Late Tiger 1

Great work on the hatch Bob it looks fantastic, the storage bin will be a big improvement on the one supplied with the kit, and using any scrap metal will be a bonus

Re: Jeffs 25 pounder

Thanks Stephen, I did a bit more torturing and metal beating today, the spade is very basic on the model, so have tried to address that, I have still to rivet on the brackets for the spade box, this is how far i got http://pic80.picturetrail.com/VOL814/8865292/22916331/414007288.jpg http://pic80.pic...

Re: Jeffs 25 pounder

Hi Marcus, I used steel for the plates, did you spot my mistake, senior moment, I forgot to put the two spade box brackets, when I riveted the angle to the top plate, so have just removed 4 rivets so I can now continue.

Re: Jeffs 25 pounder

Back to the build after a vacation, I made a start on the angles for the rear of the trail, and also made new top and bottom rear plates drilled to take 1/16th rivets, this is how far I got with the trial fitting http://pic80.picturetrail.com/VOL814/8865292/22916331/414005079.jpg http://pic80.pictur...

Re: Jeffs 25 pounder

A little more work on the 25 pounder, most of it repetition, riveted the side trails using snaps, very therapeutic, made 25 tie downs, not sure how many extra I need, one thing I did change was the screw in pivot bolt for the gun cradle, having to undo it every time drove me nuts, and is not prototy...

Re: Jeffs 25 pounder

Hi Marcus, I reduced the thickness of the gearbox below the worm wheel, the cover was made from one piece of brass and knocked into shape with a hammer on a sandbag

Re: Jeffs 25 pounder

some more bits completed, I reduced the width of the trails and made the steel side covers I can now use 1/16 1/2 inch rivets which allow me to peen over instead of gluing 2, I will also clad the front cradle in steel this will cover any unwanted holes and soften the edges. Marcus is correct in stat...

Re: DIY Hinges.

I thought I would share my method for making hinges, there is no wizardry Peter just the simplest repeatable and quickest way I have found, it uses brass or copper tubes sold on most modelling sites, from micro bore upwards, just silver solder the tube to a piece of metal of the size you require alo...

Re: Jeffs 25 pounder

completed the hand brake and linkages, many small parts but worth the effort http://pic80.picturetrail.com/VOL814/8865292/22916331/413973951.jpg http://pic80.picturetrail.com/VOL814/8865292/22916331/413973955.jpg http://pic80.picturetrail.com/VOL814/8865292/22916331/413973954.jpg http://pic80.pictur...
