Zimmerit on Churchil Tanks?

Up untill September they had produces 11 Porsche and 1 Henschel JT, including one prototype each (305001 Porsche and 305002 Henschel). 305003 through 305012 were all Porsche. The H...

Re: Re-release of the King Tiger - End 2019

Hi Mike,

I got them from a friend, you owns a tool maker shop. They are heavy duty stainless steel bearings. Not cheap, but worth every penny. I installed them on all my older (pre lazy suzan) AT tanks (Tiger 1, KT, Panther).

Cheers
