Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

Re: Real or fake

I suppose it is more manoeuvrable now but surely it would have had lower ground pressure and more stability left at full length, plus the ability to pick up larger logs ? It looks to me as though it would be quite easy for it to pivot about those stabiliser legs.

Re: New engine for Tiger1

I hadn't realised you were still progressing with the Semovente da 75/18.

Perhaps it would be possible to post some pictures in the "Off Topic" section ?

Re: New engine for Tiger1

Ingenious use of space Ivano :D :D

If that will be an oil smoker, be careful with any resin nearby as the whole smoker enclosure can get very hot when in use, especially when the fan is not turning.

If it will be a water based 'smoker' then there should be no problem.

I think it was posted to the old original forum, I'm not sure it's on line anywhere now.

I take it that you've not seen the video of Mark doing exactly that to an Armortek Sherman :?:

Sorry Mark, some of us have very long memories ... :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Re: Blank Firer

It would be interesting to know of there have been any changes to the laws since the blank firer was designed and approved (Phil W?) but my understanding is that no licence is required to purchase or transport blank shells. If it was modified to fire live rounds then that's a whole different court c...

3D printed Sherman tyres

Having tried a tyre in ABS, I thought I'd try in PolyMaker PolyFlex filament. Seems to have turned out quite well, gives the impression of being quite robust and it's certainly flexible. DSCN6878-reduced.jpg DSCN6880-reduced.jpg I tried at 100% infill first. The one above is at 50% infill and seems ...

Re: Building my Limber

Have a look here:

In it Dave says he had to re-profile the hinges to get the doors to open fully.
