Re: Early or mid ? Tiger 1 build by Phil Woollard

The lower one, but if you want the crank to be left in, you will have to make the modification to the plate to make it horizontal, or you risk that every bypassing rivetcounter will embarrass you. :wink: :lol:

You are on such a high level anyway, or are you going to shoot this one up? :shock:

Re: TBS5

Robert, IIRC, you have labeled your wires opposite the designations in the Benedini manual. That might have caused confusion? In other words, the Benedini no 4 is your no 1, connected to receiver channel 6. All you need to do now is to check your radio how receiver channel 6 is controlled, as the TB...

Re: Late Tiger 1

That's 140% just there, a ...

Awesome! :D However, you really do need to get better idlers for this quality level, but I have a hunch that they are already in the pipe...

Re: Panzer II ausf F 1/6 self-made(Dragon)

The Sattler-Werke is busy cranking out one beautiful scratch built (Eigenbau) model after the other at an incredible pace! :shock: Again, awesome looking, the Pz 2 is both a very interesting prototype (Vorbild) and model. But, what does Dragon have to do with this? All I see is steel, aluminum, bras...

Absolutely beautiful! :D
