Not sure if available in UK, but I use JB-Weld or JB-Kwik. It's a metal-filled epoxy. In larger quantities, there is a bodyworking product called "Metal-to-Metal" which is like Bondo, but uses colloidal aluminum for the 'filler' instead of talc (which is what is in Bondo). The stuff is tougher than...

A fantastic start to your battlefield there! Look forward to some more pictures. So much better than running around on a flat field.

Always like your builds Michael - so methodical and well thought out. Glad you decided to persevere with it. Nothing wrong with out of the box builds in my view
Mr Hall may be interested to know that the job which followed my parts through the booth was the complete chassis from a Land Rover, which was a lot more curvaceous than I expected, for such a box on wheels :lol: :lol: Adrian. Lets hope the owner ended up with more metal than holes - I've seen a co...
The only time I have needed blast cleaning on a tank was a Tiger which had been left outside for years and my local blaster charged £30 to do the whole job and turned it round the same day. Peter, did you strip the Tiger down beforehand ? The quotes I've had range between £64 and £180, but I'm not ...
I've considered buying a cabinet over the years Adrian, but came to the conclusion that it was not worthwhile. Reasons being that large items (in my case car panels and other parts are too big to fit in) and I tend to prefer chemical dipping now. If you're looking only at tank parts then it depends ...
Nice :D :D Adrian. Adrian, having attended the scene of many hundred fires and inspected thousands of fire damaged items, I would strongly suggest that you have the whole thing bead (or something similar) blasted. Contaminants can remain even after scrubbing or sanding and will come out to spoil yo...
As we are on the subject of wizbangs. Phil , on the subject of whizbangs, have you seen the latest video from Flitetest on You Tube? May interest you. Shows a Warthog attacking a tank. They have used a system of very rapid fire biodegradable BBs firing through a special light which illuminates the ...

Have you tried primeportal.net? If not on there the site may give you hints on where to look. Easiest is to type "25 pounders in action" in Google Images- loads of piccies on there.
Just a quick update Adrian on the above mentioned hinges which I now have. Holes match up with panels with no problem. Whilst they are about 1mm narrower than the kit ones (which are a bit too large anyway) they are about 50% thicker. Problem solved.
Adrian - look at ebay supplier lambadevine . They have hinges 13mm x 15mm which are virtually exactly right. The holes look to be in the correct position as well. £1.69 for 10. Worth a try. I've ordered some as well.
