Re: Chieftain build by Phil Woollard.

I forgot to say one thing, the rod that keeps the radiators up, I tried to do it in 3D but it is not possible, too thin, it breaks immediately. I tried to make one in brass. I think it is the most correct solution, it is not difficult to build, just a little patience. I'm sorry but I DO NOT provide ...

Re: Chieftain build by Phil Woollard.

Fortunately we understood each other, ALLELUIA! I was about to lose hope. As soon as you can still work here, there are no predictions yet, I will make the other radiator and all the other pieces. Italy is in total isolation, everything is closed and you cannot leave the house. Unfortunately I have ...

Re: Chieftain build by Phil Woollard.

In addition to the radiators, I made the upper part of the head, the coolant tanks (they will be cast in resin and not in 3D, otherwise they would cost too much, they are very bulky pieces) side pipes as shown in the photos and radiator support brackets. What do you mean by the water jacket castings...

Re: Chieftain build by Phil Woollard.

Hi Phill, unfortunately at a distance, without knowing the language it is very difficult, we both have to be patient. If I understand correctly, you say that under the radiators there is space (30mm.). The space must be above, not below. The space must contain the engine head, the front flywheel and...

Re: Chieftain build by Phil Woollard.

I don't know if I understand correctly, you say that the radiator is tight?

Re: Chieftain build by Phil Woollard.

Maybe this photo makes you understand what I mean.
How do they seem to you?
Is the measure ok? If it is ok, as soon as you can go out and reopen the activities I finish the engine head and mold everything else.

Re: Chieftain build by Phil Woollard.

Hi Phill,
the grid must be cut to the right length. It is long for those who want to make radiators to scale. A piece less to be redone.

Re: COVID19

From this morning the territory is militarized,
if they find you on the street, you risk up to 12 years in prison.
Let's see how the day went tonight.

Re: New engine for King Tiger and Jagdtiger

Because "everything at home, everything closed" I am using parts of kits that have not been considered qualitatively excellent and consequently rejected. Maybe I was wrong, they were good enough to make an engine. This shows, without boasting, that the kits are definitely superior to the others. Thi...

Re: COVID19

Today 627 deaths, over 4000 new infections.
Stay at home, don't go out, isolating the infection is essential to get out of the situation.
