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

I also do not think that the tank in that photo is 323. The modelers guide to the Tiger tank page 9 lower photo has nearly the same photo of the same tank. Also note that this tank is using the later type of Feifel canisters. Same page upper photo shows 323 with the canisters removed. Actually I thi...

Re: 4t Screw Jack - My introduction to 3D Modelling

OK Dave.
In case I need to reduce the number of drawings that I have then I won't feel bad if I delete yours.

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

My impression is that a step drill is used for sheet metal.

Will it work on the rear plate?

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

I'm going for the hl230 motor so which crank hole position do I use?
Page 40 of the Modeler's guide to the Tiger Tank gives a hint. For the HL230 (as I understand it), the hole closest to the edge of the starter plate is used for the starter shaft.

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

Your not wrong Adrian, should use a steady really but just skimming off the soft solder seems ok.
Or maybe a live center.

Re: M2.5 x 30 hex bolts, where to find?

Hi Scott I had the same problem when building my late Tiger 1 which uses the same kind of wheels as the King Tiger. You will not find commercial M2.5 X 30mm hex head bolts. At that time, these guys: https://www.ekpsupplies.com/ had something similar but it was a 7BA thread and one size smaller head ...

Re: KT27

the camo is just a mesh scarf
Thanks Phil for that piece of information. Had to google it also as it was the first time I heard of these scarves. Now I know what to look for.

Re: KT27

That's a lovely pair of Tigers Phil.

From where did you get the camouflage net?
