Hi David
Do you mean that you removed the brass bearing completly
or did you use you PTFE bits over the brass bit.
Also what thickness was the plain ring ans what thickness is the
lipped ring.
Could you post a picture please
Glad it worked for you.

I am getting some score marks on one position of the alloy turret base where it is rubbing the Brass ring. On the Panther Kits the Brass r...

Hi Guys thin ring of PTFE should do the trick just in between the base of the turret and the brass ring that is glued in the deck of the tank. I am thinking of using 1mm thick sheet.My other idea was to use 10 mm dia PTFE rod and make 4 or 5 plugs to fit in to holes I would drill in the base of the ...

Hi David
Good looking Tiger. I have used Grip fill as the welds on my Panther and
the results are very good too.
A freind of mine is a welder and asked who had done the
welding of my hull ! So it must be ok. :lol:

Hi Lee
Talk to Gary Comber at UKTC he uses this system.
You have to solder a coulpe of wires to the tranie board
but it gives 10 buttons so its one button per sound on Armortek sound unit.

Wheel Hub caps

Hi Guys I am having a small problem with the hub caps on the Panther wheels. The fine thread in the Hub caps seems reluctant to engage in the thread in the wheel. I had one dry weld on me so I have stopped completely I was wondering if others have had problems with these items ? They are all fitted ...

Base ball caps ??

Hi Gill
How about a base ball cap with the Armourtek logo on
to go with the designer gear,
for those of us with less that full coverage on top..

Hi Dave
See even better!!!
I have to say these inserts which I requested for my panther look very good when instaled on the tank that is if you dont want to go to the cost of full working ones which I didn't.

Thanks again Dave

Now thats a great idea.
I also like the idea of having a picture of the tank you own as part of the badge in my case a Panther.
