Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

Thanks for that David. That's another good way of going about it. Was going to paint the loader's hatch and periscope guard with the base coat but half way through ran out of paint. :evil: :evil: It's a holiday today (Independence Day) so have to wait till Monday to get some more paint. So instead, ...

Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

Thanks Adrian.

I remember seeing that post sometime ago but have forgotten the details. Pity the photos are not there anymore. You wouldn't have a link to that post?

Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

I have moved the turret crane boss which is in front of the loader's hatch a bit forward. The one in front of the cupola backwards and sideways. In the process of painting the parts of the turret roof. I still need to figure out how to invisibly attach the turret roof to the turret. The rear turret ...

Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

Finished the loader's hatch brass hinges. Also assembled the Armorpax loader's hatch. Cut a hole in the turret roof for the loader's periscope. Trial fit of the loader's hatch and periscope: Tiger 595.JPG Tiger 596.JPG Tiger 597.JPG Tiger 598.JPG Tiger 599.JPG Tiger 600.JPG Now that both the hatch a...

Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

Hi Tom. Sorry to hear that you are still having problems with the tracks. To be honest, I have only driven mine for short periods and always on a smooth surface, so I might have the same problem and still don't know about it. Having said that, whenever I will finish mine, it will always be the same ...

Re: Tiger 131 In South Wales

As always great stuff David. I find it very informative seeing how people go about doing things.

I believe 131 had a notch (cut-out) in the lower right-hand side (looking from the front) of the mantlet.

Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

I have been measuring and scratching my head for a while now but finally started "actual" work on the loader's hatch. I will be using the Armorpax kit as in my mind it gives the best depiction of the hatch for a late Tiger 1. The only thing I will be changing is the white metal hinge. I want to bolt...

Re: Late Tiger 1 commission build by Phil Woollard

Phil

When you applied the milliput for the turret roof, what did you do so that the milliput does not adhere to the turret roof? Masking tape or maybe kitchen aluminium foil?
