Re: New electronics in August

Is there a better idea of when these packs will be available? My build is on hold until then.

Thanks

Did you have the star washer in the bottom of the recess ?
No mention of a star washer in instructions as far as I can see... Can see how that would help!

Re: Pete's Panzer III 006

Hi Pete, luckily I found that the grubs slipped when I was building the suspension the first time, so also grounded the collar flat to fix issue. Seems still a little play here and there but hoping that all works itself out when tank load spread across wheels. I am still way behind you though! Is go...

Re: Oli's Build and Question thread

Hi Vince, thanks for the reply. The issue was with the small tubes mounted at every other hole on the wheel face. These needed to be hammered in after I enlargerd the holes slightly with dremel. I did see cap heads used in tiger builds but with the Panzer the threaded holes for this purpose are on t...

Re: Oli's Build and Question thread

OK seems like some dremelling and a hammer did the trick. Also made a rudimentary jig to get a flat face on the torsion bar ends. I had tried using the grub and countersink screw at end of each bar but it just wouldn’t hold with strong torque. Apologies for image rotation from mobile. 7D082934-DA6B-...

Re: Oli's Build and Question thread

Feels like a stupid question but can’t see how the two side of the road wheels are attached.. 60BF53A1-7475-492B-9504-28669A9F73F5.jpeg Or are they intended to be able to rotate independently? Also, some tricks for getting all the inserts in place? every single one has been a tight fit and brute for...

Re: Oli's Build and Question thread

Does anyone have any advice regarding option packs..? I am planning on getting the motion, sound and smoke packs, but am not sure how these fit into a part built model.. I am at the stage where have suspension fitted, but not any upper structure yet. Should I stop construction at this point until pa...
