Re: Bailey Bridge in 1/6th scale?

Thanks for the photo, looking for some with the chesses (decking) removed so I can see the detail on the stringers and sway braces etc. From what I can see there appears to be six stringers laying on top on the Transom's and, that being the case, that would make this an SWBB (Standard Widened Bailey...

Bailey Bridge in 1/6th scale?

Just been looking at some photos, on Facebook, of what appears to be an Armortek metal bailey Bridge in 1/6th scale. From the little I've seen it would appear to be the post-war EWBB, in the US/Nato M2 configuration, is that correct? I first suggested this to Gill back in 2007 an if Armortek have no...

Is there a market among the RC guys for Dragon's Vehicles?

I know a lot of you like to pick-up figures for your vehicles etc. but is there any market among the RC guys for the static vehicles produced by DML, things like Kubes, Scwimmers, Motorcycle Combo's etc. ?

Re: Is there a market for Armortek's very, very first Tiger

Well, I must confess to being a bit surprised at the level of interest in the old girl, with my inbox filling up rapidly. I've had some great advice on price and a few people expressing an interest in buying the old girl. I've even be advised to hold on to it as they are becoming as rare as hens tee...

Is there a market for Armortek's very, very first Tiger 1

As per the Subject line, would there be any interest in this. I've had it in storage for absolutely years, whilst I've been moving around, and now that I've settled down I'm trying to decide if I build it or sell it. I've assembled the lower hull and that's about it really. A couple years back I tho...

Re: Mike Stannard

The best person to assist in this would probably be Steve Panzerwerks, afaik he and Mike were very good friends and I'm pretty sure that he would be very familiar with Mike's stuff. Not sure how close Steve lived to Mike though!

Re: Mike Stannard

Talked to Mike several times over the years and bought a few things from him too, although I never managed to buy all that I wanted to. He was a gentleman and an inspiration. Although he lived Stateside he was in fact English and had served with, I believe, the Royal Anglian Regiment. We tend to tak...

Re: Model shows

There are a few guys in Scotland who collect 1/6th scale and there's at least one 'tank proving ground' just north of the border where DanDare goes to once in a while. http://www.onesixth.co.uk/vb4forum/showthread.php?5511-Easter-Weekend-at-Ardwell So, there are enough bods in your neck of the woods...

Re: Build log of first series of Mid-production Tiger

Well, finally got a few hours this evening to play around with the Tiger and gave it a bit of a push pull across a flat surface. All worked OK and even though I can see the issue with the spacers needing the diameters reduced I can also see that a bit of judicial positioning of the swing arms could ...

Re: Build log of first series of Mid-production Tiger

Well, all wheels assembled and on the tank and wobble doesn't appear too bad. Having looked at it more closely I'd say the problem, slight as it seems at this juncture, was actually the spacers, the tolerances on the dims of the spacers should, I suspect, have been +/- 0mm. It might be an interestin...

Re: Build log of first series of Mid-production Tiger

Just been assembling the wheels on the left side and I'm finding that I have wobble in the single wheels, whether on the inside of the axle or the outside. Didn't have time to investigate properly before Herrgruppenfurher Wifey called me to dinner but it does appear to me that the problem might be w...

Re: Build log of first series of Mid-production Tiger

Last evening I assembled all the suspension system and so far it all seems to have gone together rather well. I can see no issues with my swing arms, the threading seems fine and everything fits. Admittedly they will need a small drop of loctite, and maybe a cotter pin inserting through the swing ar...

Re: 25 Pounder field gun.

Tony buys cotton tape from Dress makers shops and supplies them to 1/6th scale hobbyists in the correct length and width so they can make up their own 37 pattern webbing according to his tutorials. He'll probably sell you what you need but you can just as well pop into a Dress makers shop or buy a w...
