Re: Supplies for dual fuel tanks

if I'm not mistaken the Chieftain has a 2 stroke engine, these engine usually have oil mixed with the fuel as the main lubricant. We used to pre mix the fuel for our bikes which was usually Castrol R, if the fuel is blended with enough normal fuel it may be a bit smokey but shouldn't cause problems.

Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

yes all hatches on the inside were painted in the same base colour IE if the hull is painted dunkelgrau/ dunkelgelb then the inside should also be dunkelgrau/ dunkelgrau whilst the turret inside should be painted elfenbein which is a creamy white.

Re: New releases

Personally I would like a Pz II Luchs or Sd.Kfz.234/1 Puma, the Luchs would make a very nice addition to the range plus its small and would appeal to people as a second model especially if they are restricted on space. If Armortek are going to build another modern tank then by far the best sales wis...

Re: Panzer Cupola MG34 AA Mount (Fliegerbeschussgerät)

The last batch of MG34 AA Mounts (Fliegerbeschussgerät) have now sold out, I will be making more of these owing to the time it takes to assemble these mounts I expect the next batch wont be ready until September, if you would like to pre order one please send me a message.

Re: New releases

There are no set dates for releases they are announced as and when, it may be best to place a request with Armortek themselves just incase an order is cancelled or place a request in the sales section you never know what might turn up.
