Re: Annual tank meeting 2019 in Hausen am Bach

Nope, still the same. Tried it in Chrome and IE and same error on both.

Google says it could be a country restriction or a privacy setting issue.

Re: Annual tank meeting 2019 in Hausen am Bach

It just comes up and says "This video is unavailable" :(

Even if I post the link into a new window, Youtube gives the same error.

Re: The Phoenix - Tiger 131 #12

It's all hydraulic, just like the original. It took me a while to work out how (and why) David had plumbed it in, but it all works a treat. Operating pressure when raising and lowering the bridge is 100bar (1500psi). I'm investigating fitting hall effect limit switches, to prevent any re-occurrence ...

Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

I would advise against using that particular type of LM2596 DC-DC converter. If overloaded, they have a failure mode which puts the incoming voltage on the output pins, frying everything downstream of them. BTDT :roll: I now test any of these cheap Chinese DC step-up/step-down boards by deliberately...

Supplies for dual fuel tanks

One interesting snippet from someone at the Sonning show on Sunday was that you can get free juice for your dual fuel running tank from the companies who earn their living helping people who have managed to put the wrong type of fuel in their cars on the forecourt. These companies apparently have to...

Re: The Phoenix - Tiger 131 #12

Blimey, is it January since I last posted in this thread ? I managed to get most of it the hull prepped and ready for paint, and made a start on priming the suspension bars etc, then decided to remove the red oxide primer and have the inside of the hull in just plain white. Then the weather turned n...

Re: At Flying Legends

Someone at the Sonning show on Sunday - sorry no pictures - asked if anyone made tanks you could sit it.

Only one I've seen is the one which was driving round at TankFest.

If it has been configured, it should be between the middle and top pins of "OUT 1+2",with the middle going to the anode (+ve) and the top going to the cathode (-ve).

Middle and bottom of "OUT 1+2" should be the trigger signal for the main gun recoil.

Re: RNAS Yeovilton Navy Air Day

Thanks for being the unofficial Independent Armour photographer, even if I'm still usually pictured up to my elbows in tank parts. The bridge layer is certainly an impressive piece of kit, even though it doesn't really fit in my current van! Even with the early start, and in my case a late finish, i...

Re: Adrian's Grant #2

Yes, it's an addition.

These brackets run along the join between the hull side and the pannier floor, in a similar way to the Tiger.

Re: Puma

I'd actually prefer the Sd.Kfz 232 - would look good in Afrika Korps colours alongside a Tiger 131.

Re: Batteries

Most tanks will take two 22Ah batteries.

Larger tanks such as the King Tiger and Centurion should be able to take two 30Ah.
