Re: Tiger 1321 rebuild

I have been working on the smoke dischargers again and decided it was time I got the smoke canisters made. So I approached Tim Catton for help and this is what we have come up with, I think they look very close to the originals. There are two types, the Nb.k.S.39 which uses aluminium and which seem ...

Hi Vince, thanks for the offer, unfortunatly I've no 3D printer. After I put the post up I wondered if I still had the marials to make them with and I have, so I will do some more when I have time.

Re: Tiger 1321 rebuild

So after nearly two months I have finally finished my early tigers counter balance. Using the parts I had, I reworked them using the pictures in the research squad book I think I now have a fairly reasonable replication of the counter balance.

Re: internal details turret Tiger1

Hi All, I have just finished painting the Gyrocompass (or should I give it its correct name Kurskreisel, Directional Gyro) and optics from Ivano. I think they have come out really nice. I just need to add the decals next, it will have to wait until I have painted the optics. IMG_2937.JPG Here are th...

Hi Phil,

Alter your search to Schwere Panzer Abteilung 503, tiger 323. I am not sure that this tiger is 323 though.

Re: Gun balance and elevation control

Hi Sam, I am not really sure, if Kent was still on here he would know. I have seen it written down somewhere but I cannot find the exact measurement that it moved by, I think it was 7mm horizontal and 14mm vertical, but I am not sure.
