We ought to run a sweepstake on the percentage of 50 kits which have 'Fury' painted on the barrel...

I’ve made all the access hatches using my 3D printer. I like the extra realism of these ad-on pieces to the Armortek kits👍A2C8B0EA-A19D-41CB-9AFF-E7F2683D88E9.jpeg
Very nicely done! You never know when your tank destroyer is going to flip over... Can't be too safe

Re: Jadgtiger in the US

So I reckon it is in same diameter as the CP0152, ie, 12 cm outer diameter, and 6cm in inner one. Only different in length. I have bought a 12cm aluminium rod, for adding of these 4 parts. Regards, Lerh Chang Oh I see it now! In a couple of the photos I can see the 3 other edge mounted lugs... huh....

Re: Jadgtiger in the US

Hi Don where are you sourcing the cannon from, or are you going to make one? 8) Phil, I have two 20mm AT Rifles (Lahti L-39 and Southern s18-1000) so I was considering using the same 20x138mm Solothurn ammo that they both use. I have a spare barrel for the Lahti that I could use... BUT... That's A ...

Re: Universal Carrier kit bashing

That is indeed a .55 Boys AT Rifle. My buddy has one converted to .50 BMG. It's a hoot to shoot, but I like big guns.

Re: Jadgtiger in the US

Not much to show this week, worked on Idler hubs a bit, worked on hubcaps a bit. Should have an update in a few days to show the hubcaps with all their accoutrements. Got my battery in, Relion RB24V20 (https://relionbattery.com/products/lithium/rb24v20) and tested the motors to make sure they spin a...

Re: Best batteries to use for chieftain

Don, The battery you looked at does have a 60A max charge rate but you might want to check under what conditions (momentary and for how long). The protection specs looks like an effective BMS, which is vital. I'm a bit surprised by the figures for life cycle. At 1000, this seems low. My Tracer pack...

Re: Jadgtiger in the US

On another front, I got my hex head caps from shapeways and they seem to be working really well. These are to dress up the 3mm Cap Head bolts in the engine and front decks. They allow you to use the standard Armortek hardware and have a hex head look to the bolts. If you'd like to use them they can ...

Re: Jadgtiger in the US

Its got legs! Dad and I got the suspension in yesterday.

We also modded the bushings to accept an o-ring to keep out fine desert dust. In addition all seams of the hull have been sealed with RTV.

Time to get rolling!

Re: Jadgtiger in the US

Got the basecoat on everything lower hull wise. Tried my hand at some airbrush highlights. This was not my first attempt... :wink: But MAYBE starting to get the hang of it. Barely.
