Re: Tiger 1321 rebuild

Going well Paul, I got some polycarbonate in various sizes. No 15 mm yet though. Waiting for a small sheet to become available. The supplier is local to me. How are you cutting the Perspex. The supplier might be able to supply some cut for me. I have fitted 12mm blocks for now. You sent me a mail re...

Limited access to internet for a few weeks though. Will get photos back up hopefully. Such a waste of time thou...

Re: Panther A

Try zibmilitaria in Germany. They shipped to me in Ireland. Have a good selection of RAL codes including dunklegelb. Shade made a great base which highlighted up nicely. Quality was good. Price is good if you buy a few cans as postage was a bit high.

Re: internal details turret Tiger1

Ivano, Will yours be a static model? I partially agree with your thinking. Some would simply sell a model they are finished and move onto a new one if space was an issue. Others have plenty of storage space. My problem is now my space is occupied by 3 Tigers and I would love a Panther or King Tiger....

Re: internal details turret Tiger1

I like the Hydraulic gearbox for the turret floor. Did you go into production with the breech?
