Re: Tiger Ausf E “F01” Gruppe Fehrmann

Thanks Alistair, That all makes sense and it's all possible to implement with an Arduino. I changed my recoil to an Arduino / stepper system and it works beautifully.

Re: Tiger Ausf E “F01” Gruppe Fehrmann

Great update Alastair.
I love the simple way of implementing the four radiator fans without using the fan ducts.
Out of curiosity, why are you going to use 4 steppers instead of DC motors? Maybe the steppers are easier to attach to the angle plate?

Re: Early or mid ? Tiger 1 build by Phil Woollard

Idlers look impressive. Are those representing the large (700mm) idlers?

Re: Replacing the power on relais with a battery shut off

Hi Vince, that's a nicely organised unit you have there, so your cut off switch is your power on switch directly as well? No relais in between? Hi Roy I kept all the original Armortek wiring. That big red switch is acting as an isolator cutting the positive line when it is in the OFF position. With...

Re: Replacing the power on relais with a battery shut off

Hi Adrian,

Good to hear you have good experiances with the same switch, i’ll leave the relais harness for what it is and wire the switch directly to the power module.

Thank you for the reply
Good idea. This is my version:

Re: My Sherman - a 14 year project

Happy New Year to you also Bob. Let's see what the new year has reserved for us. Yes, I think I finished tinkering with the Tiger muzzle brake but have not printed it out yet. I haven't done the metal endpiece (the one that goes between the muzzle brake and the barrel) but have made a 3D drawing for...

Re: Hex Head Bolts - Source in USA

McMaster-Carr comes to mind (https://www.mcmaster.com/screws/hex-head-screws/) but I am sure there are many more suppliers of hex head bolts over there.

Re: Smoker system

Looking at the photo you posted on your Stug build, that red wire is connected to a red crimp connector which in turn is plugged into another red crimp connector which also has a red wire. So I guess if you look at the wiring that you have, you should find a red crimp connector not crimped to any wi...

Re: Universal Carrier Number 30!

How interesting. If I had the universal carrier I would be doing exactly that same camoflage. Have a look here for more information on that paint scheme and at the bottom of the page are two colour photos of restored vehicles with different variations of that scheme. http://maltacommand.com/malta%20...
