For the first time I plugged the firewall into the tank.
It's all right, I was lucky.

Hi Paul,
I'm very slow because I have to finish the Panther engine
and I'm planning an Italian tank.
It's the 75/18 M40 self- propelled gun r. You can see some photos from the Facebook profile

Dear friends, I think it is expedient to publicly apologize to the people waiting for the Tiger1 engine to ship. Unfortunately there have been problems with the couriers causing strikes and I am late with deliveries. These days the goods (resin, bolts, etc.) started to arrive again. I will try to do as soon as possible but it's all done by hand and I'm alone. I apologize again, hoping that everyone will understand that it is not my fault.
Thanks again. Ivano

We have similar problems with shipping companies in the UK mate, arcelforce (sorry I dropped the P there) are now "working to rule" , "power to the people" and all that.
The lefties want it all and don't want to do anymore than they have to for it, so everyone's business has to suffer! Rant over. :roll:

I like that little tank. Phil.

Dear friends, I want to show you how I thought about using the empty space inside the engine. If you have any advice, thank you! Ivano

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 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 ?

Hi Adriano,
thanks for the information. I had thought about this problem.
But I've seen that Benedini's smoke generator is a plastic box, so I do not think it will reach very high temperatures. But I will try to ask Thomas. In addition, the interior of the engine is made of 5 mm MDF. I think this material can withstand good temperatures.
Excuse me, what's the "off topic" section? I would not like to be "recalled" by the forum moderators. I do not want to appear a competitor of Armortek.
Thanks Ivano

Sometimes I find the time to continue to mount the engine for my tank.
With some extra bolt and a little 'patience you can get good results
