Re: Mick's Panther A

Hello Mick I dry built mine (No 27) quite quick and found the same issue. I don't have the luxury of pillar drills, lathes etc., mine was going to be built straight out of the box, otherwise I am sure I could have drilled out and tapped to the correct size. Luckily I had a construction project near ...

Re: Advice please?

Many Thanks Stephen

Thinking of using 221 Loctite for putting majority of rivets in, used it in the RAF and is not that strong from what I remember.

Will start buying the paints and stuff today and get cracking on the build!

Kind regards

Hello All

I bought my 25pdr a few weeks ago and have just started putting it together, maybe asking some questions as I go along and seeking advice. Thought I would downsize after my last engineering project ( a full nut and bolt restoration of a WW2 Willys / Hotchkiss Jeep)
