Hello John, I have used Loctite on the axle,to the suspension arm, as the instructions recommend.....so,I have not considered pining the arm. I know one or two builders have used this method. My tank, while in my possession, will not be used in 'anger'. I feel the pin, is not necessary.
Phil has answered the Loctite/axle question.I will apply a small amount...to hold the bearing.
To answer Phils question....I intend having a go,..........at.....wait for it......camouflage
. I really like the look of the 'Jagdpanther' photographs in my book.
Dry fitted the road wheels, yesterday.
