Re: sdkfz 7 build log.

Thanks Dave for looking in, i have now completed this part of the build, Basket's, the bit that puzzles me is how to get all the electrics fitted in the vehicle and have access to them in the event of a breakdown, i am thinking of a removable rear end, body section. regards simon.

Re: sdkfz 7 build log.

Thank you all, its always good to get feedback, good or bad, or constructive. The next step is to alter the rear stowage basket, the position of the two baskets is critical to allow the Roof to fit in, the rear basket only just fits the Michal matata rear body section, adjusting this is also tight, ...

Re: New engine for King Tiger and Jagdtiger

i have a Ivano Engine, they are a work of art and too good to chop, they are a stand alone model in them selves, you need to make an engine compartment that will slot in and out of the tank, so you can enjoy the engine detail when not in use, or a less detailed top half of an engine that can only be...
