Re: My new Subwoofer

Interested to see how you get on with this as the rumble is what's missing from these models.

> Sound test is this weekend

The manual says to run it in for 30 hours before trying full power, so don't go too hard on it :D

Re: Mick's Panther A

You shouldn't need the .TBS file as it sounds like you have all the sounds in place, just not operating the correct outputs.

Which version of the software do you have, as the latest is quite different in look and feel from the previous version ?

Re: Sd.Kfz Rebuild

Today I managed to get the hull frame stripped down to the basics but there are quite a few CSK bolts screwed into the rails with their hex heads rounded off :cry: :cry: :cry: Also, two of the bolts which held the motor tray in place had lost their heads. One is flush with the frame, so will probabl...

Protecting spring leaves

What have people done in the past to protect the leaves of springs on the Sd.Kfz half tracks, and more recently the Quad ? The Sd.Kfz 7 I am rebuilding has quite a bit of surface rust on the leaves, especially on the ends: DSCN5382-reduced.jpg I wonder if a layer of PTFE dry film lubricant would pro...

Re: Sd.Kfz Rebuild

These old kits are a labour of love.

Re: Tiger 1 build, mid 2010 no. 27

> does the kit come with a snow shovel? as I cannot seem to locate mine.

An interesting question. The CAD image on the front of the manual shows one on the glacis plate, the Details CAD drawings show one (CE0628) with a clamp (CL0639) but the shovel is not shown in the parts list. :?

Re: Isolator switch.

I wouldn't recommend trying to use an AC MCB to try and break a DC current.

It will probably sustain the rated current during normal operation but the arc that will occur when it breaks a fault condition may well melt the internals if it isn't designed to break DC currents.

If you need the diagram for a particular tank, send me a PM as I may have it in my archive.

Re: Sd.Kfz Rebuild

Thanks Peter. I've ordered a small bottle of thinners to see how I get on.

The wheels are mostly stripped, as are the hull sides and the rear box are on the way.

Re: Mark IV 007 Build

It does look good in situ, if I do say so myself :oops: , and I'm glad the shortened end allows a nice shadow line between the gun and barrel.
