Re: SW Model Show, Autumn Edition. Tank Museum 13-14 Oct

An enjoyable day, except for the walk back from the car park, when the heavens truly opened. Rosanna and Natasha did an amazing job of not only providing us with an appropriate area next to the Grant, but also managing to get our comrades in the UKTC and SAG indoors in the face of the decidedly incl...

Re: Bergepanther "A" build log.

Interesting to see how the smoker turns out, as I've tried high power fans and they tend to blow the oil out as well !!

Re: Real or fake

Would be interesting to try and recreate that shot next year. There are a few Monty head sculpts which are quite good likenesses.

According to Mike Starmer, that camo should be Dark Green over Desert Pink, though there were some substitutions allowed.

Re: How many track links does your Tiger Have?

It might be worth checking the way the idler is constructed. This is the page from the 2010 Tiger manual. Instructions_Tiger_AssemblyHR-1_27-cropped.jpg With the two parts aligned as per the drawings, moving the internal arm towards the front of the tank will move the idler towards the back of the t...

Re: First Armotek Tank (and second r/c model ever!).

There's just one chapter per pack, rather than a complete manual.
