Re: Bergepanther "A" build log.

That smoke unit that you are using is working really well.

Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

Was always curious why the periscopes were set at that angle. Would it have been more convenient if the periscopes were able to be rotated from inside?

Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

Actually I am going to answer that question myself. I was looking again at the photo and common sense tells me that the actual periscopes have to look in the direction of the arrows, otherwise if I flip them around, the driver and the radio operator would be looking at the turret.

Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

Thanks Kent. I saw that page but unfortunately it does not show how the actual periscopes were fitted.

Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

Good morning guys.

A quick question before I do something that I will regret. Is it correct to say that the hatch periscopes face in the direction of the arrows as shown in the photo below?

Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

Last operation was to drill and tap M2 the hatches so that the brass hinge plate could be fixed to the hatch. Used the hinge plate as a template to mark the position of the holes. Hatch 018.JPG Test fitting the hinge to the hatch. Used to types of nuts to see how they look. The one in the middle is ...

What colours should I use

What colours do you use for the panzer white metal tools?

I was thinking of using Humbrol enamel paint applied with a small brush using No. 110 (Natural Wood) for the wood handles and No. 27004 (Gunmetal) for the metal parts.

Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

Some more work with the brass hinges. Drilled and tapped M2.5 the hinge plate that is fixed to the underside of the hull roof. I didn't use the cast pilot holes but measured the hole pattern in the hull roof and drilled and tapped accordingly the hinge plate. I found that on one of the hinge plates ...

Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

Mark, you've put a bee in my bonnet! I have been thinking about using real torsion springs the whole day! The major problem that I am seeing is getting stock (off the shelf) torsion springs of the correct size and "springiness". It would most probably have to be a trial and error exercise which coul...

Did not know that. Did you do it with your hatches?

Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

Will you make working hatch springs.
Never thought about that. Wouldn't that keep the hatch open all the time?
