Re: New build.

I love the way Eric Ho's Pak 43 looks so ill go along the same lines.Ime not sure how much ill have anodised and how much ill leave polished alloy. I think the secret to keeping it looking ok is staying on top of keeping it clean.The most dificult thing i have found to keep on top of cleaning it is ...

New build.

Ive bought a Pak 43 as a sort of practice build before i start my Tiger one build.I intend building the Pak 43 purely as a display so it will be finished in polished alloy and some parts Anodised.Its labour intensive because with having no paint to cover it up youve got to make a nice job. At the mo...

Lift table/posting pics.

Hi all, This maybe a silly question but a friend of mine is going to modify a motorcycle lift for a work table.My Tiger 1kit arrives today :shock: Without pulling all the bits out of the boxes could somebody tell me the gap between the tracks so that he knows how wide to make the lift table. Thanks ...

Re: Preparing for Tiger 1 late variant build

Thanks for the reply Vince,the soft soldering is a good idea,my friend looked at your measurements and said he could possibly machine it out of one piece then sand blast it to look like a cast piece. Im thinking that as i am a bit of a ludite i might do my build thread on facebook and just put a lin...

Re: Preparing for Tiger 1 late variant build

Hi Vince,what did you make the bumpstop bracket out of?is it a functional part or just for the looks?You have made a really nice job of them :roll: dont suppose you fancy making me some? Ive got a friend with a milling machine who owes me a favour so I could possibly bully him into making me some. R...
