Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

I know which camo scheme I would like to use it's just I don't know which method to use to apply it.

Re: Mick's Grant

Hi Michael Can't help much as I am relatively new to R/C but I feel your frustration. I suspect that the reason you are not getting any replies from other members is that this is a new system and hardly anybody has any experience in using it. From what I can understand Motor Control A is used for th...

Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

Thanks Bob.
Now for my favorite part - the Camo paint!
Not looking forward to do it. Sometimes I get sleepless nights thinking about it.

Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

Yesterday I started the day playing around with the Tiger going through all the R/C functions to make sure everything still worked. Had a fright at one point where the elevation and recoil did not work but soon got that sorted. The big multi-pin plug of the turret sub-loom was not pushed in fully in...

Re: Tiger1 " tard-mid" !!??

Great work as usual Ivano. I think the dimensions of the muzzle brake as shown on tiger1.info are for those fitted on early and mid Tiger1s. The late Tiger1s had a smaller and lighter muzzle brake which was actually the same as fitted on the King Tiger. I don't have these dimensions so do not know h...

Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

The tooling I need for the muzzle brake was posted yesterday so hopefully it will avoid the postal strike that is brewing in the UK. Today, with nothing else to do, I finalised the position of the Arduino recoil box and also the turret wiring sub-loom. Even put the leds in the barrel. Managed to fin...

Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

More work on the muzzle brake is stalled for now. I need to source a piece of tooling which I don't have. A couple of local telephone calls basically confirmed that I need to get it from abroad. :roll: So played around with the elevation and recoil. The painted barrel with the stepped diameter seems...

Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

Thanks Brian. Nearly there. Yesterday started work on the muzzle brake. Added a piece at the back of the central baffle to make it look like the real thing. Finished it today. I thought I would have to make this thing a couple of times but was lucky and got it right on the first attempt. Tiger 655.J...
