Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

So Mark, just to see if I have understood correctly, if I use the same pattern as the hull for the turret then I should be OK.

Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

Just to answer my own question which I had in the previous post. From period photos, it seems that the zimmeritt was actually applied to the turret behind the spare tracks. I guess this is going to create another problem for me but we'll see. Also, looking at these photos, would I be correct in sayi...

Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

Even the best of plans gets shot down the drain! :evil: I had hoped that this week I would finish and do a final assembly of all the mantlet components but it wasn't to be. All that remained to be done was to fit the six countersunk lock screws to the barrel sleeve. The countersunk screws I had plan...

Re: Chinese Eye Chieftain

Great. Another start of a new build. Where's my popcorn?

Don't have one of those sensitive drill attachments but heard good things about them.

Re: counter balance weight size

I tend to agree with Adrian regarding the diameter. 220mm or thereabout. One still needs the length though.

Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

Thanks Glen for the photo and Mark for the info.

Glen, did you finish yours also. Phil has finished his in super quick time and Brian has also finished his. I'm still lagging behind.

Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

Brian, I use a blunt wood chisel to chip it off. Infact I just re-did attempt no.3. Still not really happy with it but I don't think I will be re-doing it again.

Thanks Brian. I think I will redo it. Today, hopefully, I will start removing the tile adhesive.

Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

Buon giorno Ivano Please find attached the measurements for the stepped hole insert for my late Tiger 1 mantlet (single eyepiece). Tiger 627.JPG I drilled and reamed 8mm the existing hole in the mantlet. Using an 8mm brass rod made the three stepped holes. Used an endmill or a slot drill to make the...

Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

Hi Ivano

http://tiger1.info/EN/Telescope-holes.html
It does not give the actual diameters of the various step holes so I estimated the diameters. If you want I can measure them for you.
