Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

I meant the small scale stuff with beautiful scenery, buildings and trees where the owners have invested decades in delicate detailing. Cats often like those layouts.

Re: Maximizing Run Time?

Overdoing things is an interesting topic. :D I replaced 80 kg of lead batteries (150Ah) with 11 kg of lithium (60Ah). The model came out way too light after that, so I put some of the lead batteries back (as many as I could fit...) as ballast. After all, prototypical weight of a tiger 1 is 250 kg. (...

Re: Maximizing Run Time?

Good strategy Ross! 1 Get the lifting table (you will need it from basic hull assembly and forward) and save up to the batteries and charger for later. 2 Measure the available space, plan the layout and order cells or batteries accordingly. It came on to me to do just a quick space check before clic...

Re: Maximizing Run Time?

I am also not sure which route is best. I did it the Gerhard way and happy with that. Either way, I think you will find that the height of the batteries/cells is a challenge. My charger is capable of pushing 54A into the battery. So if you opt for a smaller capacity, a ten minute pit stop goes a lon...

Re: Maximizing Run Time?

It is feasible, especially on a hard floor at an indoor convention. Grass drains the batteries considerably more. Smoke adds to the drain. My smoker draws about 3,5 A max and produces decent volumes. Sound can be a killer if you go all in. A friend of mine has some hundred W and it draws 11 A when t...

A turret was a dangerous place at all times, and if you did not watch out, the turret monster would get you.
It got both my tiger 1 forward deck hatches... :shock:

So most probably I will do another late turret ventilator just for fun.
I think the Vince Cutajar line would sell very well indeed. :D

Re: Tiger build

W-o-w! :shock:

I like the hoses. I like everything, but have had quite a struggle with the hoses myself, so can relate to that. Did you make them yourself in some supersoft material? They look so relaxed?

Awesome!

Re: Tiger build

Stephen is entirely wrong ! The tiger is not over-hyped at all. The tiger is the most interesting tank of all times. A zillion people have modeled it, but he is right that yours does stand out in every respect. And like the work of a true master, it seems so easy and effortless. Yet, if one tries to...
