Re: Convoy light

Hi Mark, PM sent.
Two questions to ask:

Re: Chieftain kit arrival

Hi Youngjae,

Nice to see your recoil modification on Youtube. Very cute.
Just a silly question: Do you still use a bigger counterweight, or change it back to the stock one?

Re: Chieftain kit arrival

Hi Youngjae,
One question. What's the reason to instal a longer/larger counterweight? Isn't it going to reduce the gun elevation angle?

Re: Man cave tour featuring Tiger *video*

Good film Brian. A very nice workshop indeed.

Just curiosity, unlike other AFV builders, no lathe, drill and mill machines are shown in your "cave". Any reason why?

Totally agree with Phil. The 1/6 monster, unlike his big brother, will be long lasting and fully-reliable for years to come. :D

Re: Chieftain kit arrival

Hi Youngjae,

Love to see your Chieftain building progress. Can't wait to see more photos.

In one of your photo, I see the turret's ring. Is it the so-called "Lazy Susan Bearing Aluminum Turntable Bearings"?

Just like the Chieftain of 2019, this BIG cat will surely be "The Phenomenon" of 2020.

Well, and did you detect any excessive wearout to the drive train when using Olaf's tracks?
Hi Gerhard,
Sorry for the late reply.
No, I didn't find any. But as I didn't run the so-heavy KT much, so can't say it never will be. Only no obvious excessive worn out.

With regards,

Re: Jagdtiger prototype

Well David it's not as though it doesn't exist in 1/6 form. It would have had very limited value, and I couldn't see many Armortek buyers wanting it either. Hi John, Even shown only a partially-assembled chassis, this E-100 is definitely a jaw-dropped monster. Can you share more of information, eg,...

Re: Jagdtiger prototype

The Armortek's aluminium track is 6.7kg. While replacing to Olaf's steel track, I've weighed both of them. :D
