Re: Late Tiger 1 commission build by Phil Woollard

FANTASTIC build, some really great details added. I do have one question about the side fender at the rear - How far down should it be. This is what I did on mine. https://i35.photobucket.com/albums/d189/kapernakis/sidefender5.jpg https://i35.photobucket.com/albums/d189/kapernakis/34rear-1.jpg And t...

Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

Looks good Vince, I have added the rain cover tubes and I used .125" brass tube.

Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

Vince there should be no gap between the turret and mantlet, if you go to my Tiger thread on page 3 you will see I had the same gap. I had to do a lot of filing/sanding to eliminate the gap.

Re: Tiger build

Looking very good so far.Your welds have come out fantastic and I like that you have corrected the front mudguard attachments, very few have done this. Only thing I can see that needs to be modified is the drivers armored visor.
Looking forward to more updates.

Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

Why not make the mudguards out of brass. Check out how I made them for my mid Tiger. My post is on page 11.
viewtopic.php?f=6&t=1219 It looks like my pictures (photobucket) can be seen.
The Armortek ones did not come forward enough.

Re: New build Tiger 1

Hate to bring this up now but I just noticed it, on the outer wheels the hub should be recessed. Here is what I did on mine. http://i35.photobucket.com/albums/d189/kapernakis/Wheel1.jpg Here it is completed and after running the tank for a while, compare this with the pics above of Tiger 131. http:/...

Re: Tiger 131 In South Wales

Looks like your build is coming along nicely. Its good to see someone else making the correct hinges for the front mudguards. What material are you using to make them?

Re: Real or fake

Thanks Simon.
Phil I like your edit, and yes please give the "for and against" for the second picture, I know the first has alot wrong with it.

Re: Real or fake

These were taken a long time ago, tank was not completed at the time. First one not so good but I liked the second one.

Re: Tiger 1 (Early Variant) 2004 #98 build

If you want to see what I did on my mid production Tiger for that part go to page 9 and look at my build. It is on the first page. The one Vince made is not correct.

Re: Ken's Tiger

Looking good Ken. I have also used Mike's tools and brackets and have never had a problem with them coming loose. There is a picture on page 25 in the Modeler's Guide to the Tiger Tank that shows the tube. Since you have done all those excellent mods here is one that you may want to do. (Scroll to m...
