Re: Annual tank meeting 2019 in Hausen am Bach

Hi Gerhard and Reinhold. Thaks for your help. If I do come it will be with a tank or Tanks. I have a Armortek Panzer III, Mk.IV and a Rolls Royce Armoured Car. As for water and electricity I am self sufficient. I do have a quiet running Generator but it will not be running all night, and water will ...

Re: Annual tank meeting 2019 in Hausen am Bach

I'm thinking of attending the hausen am Bach show.

Is there a campsite nearby that can take a motorhome for a couple of days?

Re: Mark IV No. 35

Hi Daniel Don't give up on Lightning III, the Mk.IV is unique among the Armortek World, not many appear at shows amongst all the German stuff. I can understand your frustration at the power problem. I had 2 5 amp Sealed Lead Acid batteries in mine and also found that they drained quickly. I now have...

Re: CHIEFTAIN

Odd that the registration number is upside down on the bridge. If they'd put it on the other half, it would have always been the right way up.
Bridge on upside down?

Re: The Littlefield collection.

Quite possibly the greatest collection of armor ever. I was fortunate enough to spend a day visiting famous Littlefield Collection about 16 years ago. Here are two photos I just found in a shoebox. I cannot remember if these were analog or digital photos. When I took my tour the Panther in this vid...

Re: Metal Filler Material

I use a product called 'Chemical Metal' available here in the UK under the 'Plastic Padding Brand'. Its a two part epoxy resin that adheres to metal wood and stone, and can be filed, sanded drilled and tapped. It is made by 'Henkel', I believe they are the same people who make Loctite so it may be a...

Re: Panzer III Cupola

The 'modification' to the cupola to make the hatch halves go fore and aft instead of slightly off centre wasnt as bad as I thought it might be. When I took the hatch hinges off I found four holes, two of which were threaded for the M3 X 6 CSK screws to hold the hinges in place. By moving the hatch h...

Re: M3 Prototype Build

I can't remember where I found it on the web, but I do recall seeing a post that said that the WE210 tread was designed with a deeper rubber tread to take into account the softer conditions found in the sands of the western desert. It also suggested some Shermans may have used in Italy with tracks s...
