Re: KT27

Thank you very much Tom. I’m sure yours will be great, camo is so individual, anything goes really? Good luck with your build!

Re: KT27

Thanks Peter, thanks Vince!
Vince, the camo is just a mesh scarf, Cut to whatever size and spray painted?

KT27

My completed 2019 KT. And an aptly named “ambush” of Tigers!

Re: Caps, shirts, jackets and more

Not sure, because the pictures are not 100% clear on my IPad, but is the logo last letter an “x” instead of a “k”?

Re: Caps, shirts, jackets and more

Hi Kian and Monique.
Can you please clarify the “actual chest” measurement please?
The body length and arm length measurements are self explanatory, but the actual chest numbers (given in cms) don’t make any sense (to me!)
Thanks!
Phil.

Re: Tom's King Tiger Build 2019 Hull 53

Hi Tom I too had banana shaped hull sides and jumped up and down on them... but unfortunately not heavy enough to make an impression! Not having equipment to straighten them meant filing the decking to suit the bend. Also had to modify the track tensioner on one side to aligne the tensioner bolt wit...

Re: Fitting & Filing....

Great advice and very well written Christoffer! Thinking logically with a good helping of common sense and using the process of elimination should be successful in solving most problems! The main issue with the KT is the size and weight of the hull components, wrestling with these can be frustrating...

Re: Fitting & Filing....

I was a mechanical fitter/maintenance engineer all my working life, all I’ll say is that all those years of experience have come in very handy on this build, including filing, re drilling and yes Robert... body filler!

Re: 2019 KT Option packs

Hi Monique
Thanks for the latest update. Totally understand the situation and thanks for your efforts in keeping the factory ticking over.
Until the option packs are ready, I can always tow the KT around with my Tiger 1, using my own sound effects!
Hope you and all the staff stay safe.

Re: Hull construction problems of king tiger

Hi John The placement of the front glacis plate to the pannier side is crucial as it has fixing points for the front section of the side skirt. I had to re drill my fixing points to allow the front side skirts to fit. Just work slowly and methodically through each process, sometimes you need 3 (or 4...

Re: Hull construction problems of king tiger

Hi John Firstly, congratulations for getting the bend out of the side and pannier plates, at least you won’t have to alter your top decking to fit the banana shaped hull! If it’s any consolation, my pannier side plates fit worse than yours...I’ll now have to cover my hull with zimmerit to cover up t...

Hi Andy

All the best Phil.
