Re: Brian's 2017 NO. 10 LATE TIGER 1 BUILD

> All the artworks have unpainted ROADWHEELS It's my understanding that the road wheels were either left all in the base colour, or painted completely in one of the camouflage colours, as a rotating wheel with striped camo on it shows up much more more readily than one which is a single colour.

This should be interesting :-)

Frightening in fact, when you think how small all these parts actually are :shock:

Re: Transmitter / receivers

Look for the "Gen2" Spektrum transmitters as they now have antenna diversity, which helps maintain signal quality, especially inside these metal models.

Re: Mark IV No. 01 - "Kathleen"

Did you loctite the track fasteners, and if you did, how did you undo them ? Pliers holding the edge of the round nut ? I've been working on the drive sprockets and found that, with the primer and paint added, I can't get the bearing holders through the track tensioning slots :evil: I've taken about...

Well done Stephen :D :D :D :D

It's eclipsed your Panzer II thread, and we all thought that was unbeatable.

So, what's your target for the Chieftain thread - 300,000 :?:

Great work Bob - good to see you building on here again. Not really a fair adversary for the M5 though :lol: :lol:

Re: Mark IV No. 01 - "Kathleen"

Finished both track runs now, and am etch priming over the button head bolts in preparation for the top coat. One question about plate fitting at the joint. The instructions say to leave 3 plates off either side of the joint. On Chris's thread, he mentioned taking off four plates when removing the t...

> The controller is set up different than a 1/16 tank which mixes the throttle and aileron for turning then? The controller doesn't do any mixing itself but it should be possible to do it on your transmitter. Have a look in the Knowledgebase for Futaba elevon mixing - the instructions for the T7C sh...

Re: Brian's 2017 NO. 10 LATE TIGER 1 BUILD

There are only two inputs needed for the motors, as both the speed and direction information is built into each signal. The motors are correctly attached to Speed Control Outputs 3 and 4. So, to control them, you need to connect the receiver to RC Inputs 3 and 4. To start with, I would set up the ta...

Thanks to Denny for the organisation and the rest of the team to make it such an enjoyable event.

Re: Chassis colour

Yes, the AT 222 is a bit of a mongrel - late features and early features. I've found pictures of AK 222's with the traficators on the wings and no armoured hub covers, so I guess there's some room for manueover. One thing is for sure and that's that I don't want the whole thing in Panzer Grau :lol: ...

Chassis colour

As far as I can tell, all the Sd.Kfz 222 chassis were made by Horch and sent to be mated with the relevant bodywork elsewhere. Would they have all been delivered in PanzerGrau or would the later ones have been delivered in Dunkelgelb ? Most people seem to build 222 kits, in any scale, with a grey ch...
