Re: MP40 location in turret?

OK, I think I found that the MP40 was held in a sheet metal formed tray, similar to the one that’s vertically mounted in the Tiger, although it’s in the horizontal position on the right side of the turrets wall. It’s frame also has as part of its skeleton structure, two hooks horizontally opposed ab...

MP40 location in turret?

Holiday Peace & Cheer,

Re: Panther Barrel Dimensions

Mark, Thank you. I’ll just fly across the pond with my measuring tape, Calipers, and Covid-19 mask! :D The original barrel has several different tapers throughout its length, something that you see on many 1/35th, and 1/16th scale kits now. I will use Panzer Tracts No.5-3 and perhaps scale from that...

Re: Panther Barrel Dimensions

So, nobody knows the actual dimensions of the Panther barrel? Too bad, would really like to improve upon the Armortek inaccurate barrel.

Panther Barrel Dimensions

Could anyone please advise me of the Panthers barrel dimensions? My efforts are to have an accurate barrel turned from Aluminum from Breech to Muzzle Brake, including its threading at the MB.

Thank you,

Re: internal details turret Tiger1

Ivano,
I’d like to get one....but I’m afraid that without a decal to show the Heading Display of the internal Gyro display in the window....it would be just too difficult to hand paint.
