Re: Tiger I Adjustable Suspension

Thanks Adrian, but why has their position (above or below) and at times number (above and below) changed? Surely from above (inside the hull) would be better than from below, (extra holes in hull floor).

Tiger I Adjustable Suspension

I’m not sure when, but at some point Armortek went from fixed suspension to ‘adjustable’, where the fixed end of the torsion bars are fed into a ‘fixed end’ (CE0270, CE0271) held tightly from outside the hull side. But in addition to these fixings, there is also a means of clamping screws onto the ‘...

Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

Hi Vince, sometimes the pins were in the other side of the link, standing on top of the short pin of the lower track link retainer, so then they’ll protrude.

Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

Hi Vince,
I reckon the paint went wherever these guys thought appropriate. Just as it does with our models, but probably with a lot less care. Decide what theatre your vehicle was in and camouflage it to suit would be my bet.
Cheers,
Simon

Re: In memory of Gill Watkins

I’m very sorry to hear this. It was meeting Mark and Gill in person, their hospitality and banter that persuaded me to become a customer. My thoughts and best wishes to Mark and his family.

Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

Hi Vince, I’m not home so don’t have my usual references to hand. It seems some Tigers had turret zimmerit that matched the hull zim, same pattern. While others (most it seems from pics) had a broader, bolder pattern. Why, I don’t know. All depends on which specific Tiger you’re modelling? Hope thes...

Re: Wanted!

Hi Vince,

I didn't realise, I'll search for that. Although I'm never still long enough to sit at a computer, seem to live my life on my phone!

Thanks again,

Re: Wanted!

Thanks Vince,

I struggle with this site. Not knowing Geeman it's not the easiest to navigate. But I might investigate further.

Wanted!

I'm after some 1/6 wing nuts, Steve Winstone does a nice line, but is out of stock. Anyone have any for sale, know of another supplier, or want to join me in ordering from Steve? I'm after something solid, no white metal or resin offerings. Thanks in advance.

Re: Late Tiger 1 commission build by Phil Woollard

Phil, I notice also, what the late, sadly missed Mike Stannard made from brass is now cast in white metal; no where near as robust. It would take MS an age to turn sround an order, but it was top notch when you received it. We're lucky though, there's still a few quality after market suppliers this ...
