Re: Scale cupola

Mark I had one many moons ago. It was a beautiful work of art, as was all of Vince's parts. But long since sold. I think even back then, they sold for $500 or so. I was hoping I still had a photo of it, but cant find that even. Good luck in your quest. Bob Thanks Bob....yes his was special for sure

Re: Tiger build

Adhering the handle to the vent did not appeal to me as there is very little surface area....so I soldered it...most "white metals " can be soldered but you need much experience as it is temperature critical and easy to destroy the piece...no need to add simulated weld now :wink:

Re: Tiger build

The rivets look like hold on a mounting point for the end of the chain which attaches to the plug at the back of the firing tube. I would guess the plug was detached whilst the canisters are loaded, so that there is no chance of one going off as it was being loaded. If you were stood behind when pl...
