Re: ferdinand /elefant exhaust system

As Marks photo shows the exhaust from the Maybach HL 120 TRM exists in the sponson. It might be of interest to know that the Ferdinand´s exhaust exited much closer to the lower side wall. Because complaints from the crews and maintenance guys (exhausts heating up the grease of the wheels thus riskin...

Re: Uwe's King Tiger

Hi Uwe,

A very nice build and I like your "fire simulation" - could you show more of the different parts of the "fire simulation" and how they are put together for a non-smoker like me.

Cheers Per

Re: Steves Elefant build

Lerh, Steve and others, The fender support on the Ferdinand and the Elephant went throught some changes and some of the Ferdinand details remained on the Elephant which can be seen on the "102" vehicle. To understand this it´s best to start with the Ferdinand on which the brackets looked like this; ...

Re: Elephant Rain Gutter?

I´ve researched this vehicle now for 4-5 years both inside and outside and I my conclution is that these are rain gutters. You´d want to avoid rain entering the engine bay as it contains the two generators. These gutters are L-shaped as Stephen pointed out, which can be seen in the photo below (from...

Re: sturmtiger build at last

Hi Simon, I must have missed your update but your close defence weapon looks great, did you do all the machining yourself? Perhaps some photos can help you do the last centre tube part as it looks like this in most cases (some variants of rubber sealing location): http://i68.tinypic.com/2prikg5.jpg ...

Re: Dunkelgelb - what colour (color)?

Hi Stephen, Well, nailing the correct German WWII colours will give you plenty of interesting work, many have tried and still do. Just some small corrections regarding the photos; - the first one is a Tiger II given to Sweden from France, which arrived in November 1947. Photo is not outside Henschel...

Re: Tiger 1321 rebuild

As far as I can see there are no differences between the early or late Tiger I´s as regarding to how far the MG protrudes. Here´s an early version with a small protective cap on the muzzle; http://i64.tinypic.com/utopi.jpg and on the late version (possibly also with the protected cover); http://i66....

Re: Martin's Jagdpanther

Hi Martin, I don´t have original drawing of Jagdpanther parts but photos below reveal details; here´s one from the Jagdpanther in Kubinka and as you can see the metal strip is spot welded on and at the arrow (marked 1) you see the outer edge is chamfered to meet the rubber seal: http://i65.tinypic.c...

Re: Martin's Jagdpanther

Hi Martin, To late now but the there are no rivets on the inside of the Jagdpanther rear hatch. In fact, there are spot welds that hold a thin metal strip which in turn keep the rubber seal in place - it might look like rivets but it´s not. On this hatch the rubber seal is on the hatch. On the Tiger...

Re: For Sale - Tiger 1 2003 Casted Turret

Hi Steen,

I´ve sent you a pm some weeks ago that I´m interested in buying the cast Tiger I turret but you seemd to have missed it. I´ve sent you a new pm with my e-mail address - can you get back to me?

Re: Tiger cartridge sizes

Hi all, Interesting to find somebody that owns one of the plastic Tiger shells from the mid 70´s as I always wondered what the quality was like, it looks quite good judging by the photos. I really wanted one back then but can´t remember why I didn´t get one. Walter, do you still have the leaflet? He...

Re: Old Tiger, New Owner

Hello Patrik, First of all good to hear that Stefan´s Tiger II remained in Sweden. I also find your idea of having an combustion engine and working gearbox in the model interesting but be warned as that can be quite expensive with all the gears (unless you cut them yourself). As for the cotter pins ...
