Re: Novice Late Tiger Build.

Glen they fit to the front plate right next to the front fender hinges, they are sockets ( they should be drilled out really) for a winch post to lift the sprocket whilst in the field.

Re: Late Tiger 1 commission build by Phil Woollard

Hi Allan Ebay, Slaters Plastikard, I have a stock of different sizes but tend to use what looks best, sometimes as with these sprockets just a tad bigger than is correct otherwise they would be lost!

Re: Late Tiger 1 commission build by Phil Woollard

Not yet Larry, I want to see how it runs first. I do have another quicker method of taking the edges off the teeth. My pleasure with the insight and hope the tips help. 8)

Re: rubber tyres

Hi Raymond, I think that you will find the Armortek tyres are not "off the shelf" parts and would be made for Armortek. I'm sure you will find something out there, try the European model enginneer market on the Net.......regards Phil.

Re: Late Tiger 1 commission build by Phil Woollard

Hi Vince, I'm still working on those sprockets this morning then off out this afternoon on my Harley, just got to get the wind in my hair! . Sounds like yours will be a perfect runner with all this attention to getting the engineering just so but it's very satisfying 8)

Re: Chieftain Prototype Build

Wow indeed, I'm looking at the available space over the motors for those half engines (plural), or if I move the motors and gearboxes towards the middle of the hull I would then have a blank canvas, albeit the chain drives in the way, so much to think about 8) Could I be cheeky and ask the boss to j...

Re: Chieftain Prototype Build

These electric workshop winches are not much money and will lift the whole tank if you want it to, just think about the ceiling joist fixing before you commit. 8) Most seem to hang from a 50mm scaffold pole quite happily, and just require a 13amp socket. I use a slightly larger one to lift the shipp...

Re: Late Tiger 1 commission build by Phil Woollard

More progress although as the parts become smaller and require more work things seem to slow down some what.

Re: Chieftain Prototype Build

Thinking outside the box for a moment and considering the logistics of building and indeed owning and running this very impressive model, when we need to lift the turret, and this may be a two man job for some, even now with say the KT we use the barrel and the bustle as lift points. I'm sure you gu...

Re: Late Tiger 1 commission build by Phil Woollard

The sun has been out which means ideal spraying conditions in the fresh air with very quick drying times. I think I may invest in the spray booth drying lamps for the new workshop, which should be built this summer.

Re: Late Tiger 1 commission build by Phil Woollard

Hi Andy, yes the grubs are just fine but do wang them up tight so they bite into the thread. Use a quality allen wrench as a cheaper one may round off its self or the grub. You could drill a little way in if you feel the need, maybe 3 mm or so. In the days before the grub screw upgrade I have drille...
