Re: My old weld tutorial

Hi Roy,

Very essential the weld stick to the surface as we run our models.
This is how I do it (better safer than sorry....)

Bare aluminium / brass or whatever-> degreased -> etch primer -> milliput welds -> degreased -> second primer -> topcoat

Never failed me.

Kind regards

Re: New muzzle brake

Hi all,

I would be interested in an accurate Panther muzzle that would fit the Armortek barrel.
Count me in if it would be made.

Aber make a good looking one in 1:16.

Re: Forum Banner

Hi all, Sadly thats not a ”real” Hetzer but a customized Swiss G13. The oil plugs at the drive housing and the threaded end of the barrel for the G13 muzzle says its a G13 from origin. However an Armortek Hetzer I’m sure would be welcome out there on the 1:6 market. But not for me as my Spearhead on...

Re: Jagdtiger prototype

Hi all, Yes, Olaf’s Kgs 73/800/152 single-links is a work of art but was never used on Jagdtigers. http://www.panzer-modell.de/specials/sohlen_der_tiger.pdf Per Sonnervik (RIP) told me so and for his own scratchbuild 1:6th JT he had Das Geisswerk made a set of for a JT the correct Kgs 73/800/300 dou...

Hi Heiko,

I look forward to this build of yours as what I have seen of yours other build here and on other forum your work and skills are second to non.

Sadly can’t help you with parts but just a reminder you need a pair of Stug/Panzer III sprockets here as well.

Re: Late Tiger 1 commission build by Phil Woollard

No I love your work and how you always try to rise the bar for more accurassy in your builds just like me. What I don’t like is vendors who don’t bother to do proper research or listening to people with more knowledge. However feeding this forum for +15 years now, being banned twice under those year...

Re: Late Tiger 1 commission build by Phil Woollard

Thanks Mark that's just the ticket, I think Kent has some competition! Some more progress on the turret. :D Found an interesting Henchel factory drawing at Panzerbasics from the Per Sonnervik collection that might be of interest regarding the mantle/hatch issue. It looks as there was a bit of probl...

On a related note... in 1993, Iraq was considered to have the largest supply of salable scrap metal in the world. By tonnage. After oil, it was their greatest resource for a couple of years. Them T72's and T80's and BTR's were great live fire targets. But of no use as they were victims of depleted ...
