Re: Elefant electronics

If it's still wired up then you could take photos and post them here.

A flash and a bang might be a fuse blowing but if there was fire involved it sounds terminal.

Probably ought to be in the "Off Topic" section then :wink:

I posted this lot on Facebook and the best suggestion there was that it was the bastard child of a Chieftain and a PT-76 :lol: :lol:

Re: Cobbaton Combat Collection VJ Week End

I wasn't able to attend due to a family illness but Holger sent over some more pictures: 20190810_112731.jpg 20190810_113416.jpg 20190810_114053.jpg 20190810_114122.jpg 20190810_114146.jpg 20190811_113825.jpg 20190811_113840.jpg 20190811_113938.jpg 20190811_144523.jpg Adrian.

Re: Help in locating page in tiger1.info

Re: Late Tiger 1 commission build by Phil Woollard

> Adrian I will have to do some driving trials, that will be a chore :roll:

Will be interested to see the results, as the Sherman kits have a much narrower lower hull but also quite large sponsons, so a battery set up like that might allow more space in the hull.

I've seen this in the past when the current limiting resistor in the elevation motor supply is too sensitive.

Counter-weighting the barrel should reduce the load on the motor and allow it to operate correctly.

Re: Late Tiger 1 commission build by Phil Woollard

The detailing going into this Tiger is amazing :D :D :D It will be interesting to see how well the 9Ah batteries stand up to the rigours of moving a Tiger around, as suppliers such as PowerSonic only give the headline capacity when discharged over 20 hours. So to get 12Ah from their "12Ah" battery, ...

Re: king tiger (2013) shut down

Which module system do you have (Power Supply + Auxiliary + Motor Control or just Motion Control Module ) ? It looks like the Main Module thinks the battery is flat. Any burnt connectors or wires between the battery and the main module which might cause a voltage drop ? It could be a fault on the mo...

Re: Panzer III ausf L

The obvious place to allow separation on the Panzer III is along the two angle brackets, as that's where the real one came apart, so with a little ingenuity, it should be possible for you to make the whole rear engine deck piece with all the hatches etc removable without needing to leave countersunk...
