Re: Hatches in the Spud Box ?

I also agree with Chris in his researches, and my lesser ones, that the Mark IV Spud Box does not have hatches, I am also of the opinion that Lodestar III does not have Hatches, my photos are pretty bad so I won't post them! I was very relieved that there were no Hatches as I was more concerned abou...

Re: How to clean my big cat?

Again, don't lubricate, as it will create with grit and sand a cutting paste. Dry the tracks and then use the Tank again, frequently. Track movement will stop rust from building up and the links seizing. My Tiger Track pins are slightly rusty in places but otherwise fine.

Re: How to clean my big cat?

I am a great believer in natural weathering, and I have allowed Bovington dust to settle on my Tanks along with grass and other suitably sized vegetation to lodge on the hull, with I think, to good effect! However canine excrement is not part of my acceptable weathering and does need washing off, im...

Re: Mark IV No. 35

It makes you realise how easy it would be for the real Tanks to end up with themselves perched on top of a mound/ridge of mud with the tracks just keeping turning with no grip. So be thankful it is snow, not mud you are removing!
All the best Steve

Re: Port Meadow's WW2 Bailey Bridge

By way of a follow up, it was a good talk with one or two extra bits of information coming out. Plus The REME Museum in Gillingham had lent a section or two of Model Bailey Bridge. which was good to see up close, and also to watch an extra section added in just three or four minutes, really impressi...

Re: Happy New Year !!!

Well, the Calendar new year beats the Financial new year, or the Academic new year! The days becoming longer help me through the cold of the winter and I look forward to the Garage getting warmer and being able to work in it of an evening. Plus looking forward to events old and new certainly helps. ...

A break from making mince pies, a total so far of 160. Top tip for weathering, a light dusting of icing sugar to simulate snow... :lol:

Re: Preparing for Tiger 1 late variant build

Hi Vince I have the Modelers Guide and it is really useful. Now it maybe you have a rich relative who is looking for ideas for presents or you think that if you buy it at silly money you will be able to sell it for silly money, so it is an investment that will help your Tiger to be the best you can....

Re: Fasteners!

I use small really useful boxes to put the small bags in so there will be labels on them along the lines of 3mm nuts, 3mm socket head, 3mm countersunk, 3mm Misc. Given that the bolts etc range typically from 2.5mm through 3mm, 4mm and a smattering of 5 and 6mm it doesn't mean there are too many and ...

Re: Knowledge Base Topic - Weathering - Getting Started: Principles, Materials and Techniques - ADVANCED

I am going to stick my neck out and say, how about at the Tank Mod doing a demonstration. Kian and Monique can provide the Tiger Tanks, so that you can say, "now we move to the one prepared earlier" as you show the next stage :twisted: Or I would be happy to lend my Quad for a make over? I do not ha...
