Easy Access Top

Post by Steen Vøler » Wed Aug 21, 2013 7:48 pm

Hi there folks

I need some inspiration/sugestions to an idea that I want to make on my JagdPanther top roof.

I would like to have the roof to open up, being hinged to the fighting compartment so that it opens up like the motor-hood on a car.

Anyone have suggestions on how to make the best solution here?

cheers
Steen

Hi Steen

Tim McCarthy had a hinged top on his Tiger's turret to have easier access ti the blank firing unit and I think some others have done it successfully. I haven't looked in the Tiger 1 threads but take a look through there and see if he posted photos. I'm sorry I can't remember who else did this but i know there were others.

If not, send Mr. McCarthy a PM and I'm sure he would send photos and comments.

All the best
Tim

John Grima did something interesting with magnets on the turret top of a Panther rebuild.
