Wanteds `Elefant Pics

G'day All,

Hoping someone can help and provide or direct me to the pics showing the top of the TD. I have books that show drawing but this doesn't show welded areas. The top is hard to find.

Thanks a lot.

Re: Late Tiger 1 commission build by Phil Woollard

G'day Phil, I purchased the same radiator set as you are working on and must say that for the price I paid I wasn't to happy with the quality. To me if you pay a high price you get high quality with minimal requirement of cleaning and modifying to fit properly. I purchased some tiger 1 turret stuff ...

Elefant Gun Controls

G'day Guys, I'm using a spektrum 11x transmitter with mode 2. The throttle & rudder stick are L/R, up and down repectively. My issue is the spring loaded rudder stick which causes the gun to return to centre when the rudder stick is released to centre. I want the gun to stay at the intended position...
