Re: New Arrival.

Not much time today to look at this but I've removed the AP packing and found the manual :lol:

I've also counted out the track links. 330 are supplied. :shock:

New Arrival.

Well, that's a surprise. An Armortek vehicle which fits in one box and you can actually pick it up :-)

Can't wait to get inside and see how it has turned out.

Re: Real or fake

According to FB it was being built for a film but took too long, so they lashed up a T55 or something similar instead, so it was left in that state.

Re: Yves Stug III update

I hate to raise this post surgery, but I thought StuG crews wore the grey/green uniforms rather than the Panzer black ones ?

Re: A 47 years old love

I love the idea of a routed soldering template but I guess it smokes quite a bit when you're soldering them up.

I don't suppose you fancy making another one, as I need one for the Centurion AVRE :wink:

Re: Muzzle Brake

M22 x 1.5 is a standard plumbing thread, so you might be able to find a threaded coupler which would save you the problem of cutting the thread.

Re: FrSky X10s -Horus

I thought the Horus came with its own firmware but could be flashed with OpenTX ?

OpenTx is the mutts nuts, once you've learned how they do things.

Re: Chris’s M3 project

WoT is a missed blessing. It's nice to get groups of kids at shows who can rattle off all the tanks in the line up, but these are balanced out by the people who tell you that your shovel is mounted the wrong way round.

Re: firing unit part question

The one at the front was a later model, which has the rubber sealing ring to prevent flash over.

I vaguely remember there was an issue with the supply of the short blanks for the first version, so the later version was made deeper to accommodate a blank size which was more widely available.

Re: Armorteks next model

Now that we have the Hetzer in the Armortek garage, what do people think about a Kompact Kit of the Leichte Feldhaubitze 18/2 followed by a Wespe?

That would be something different and a similar challenge to get all the bits in under the fighting compartment :wink:
