Re: Novice Late Tiger Build.

No Vince,I haven't tightened them down yet.Ive just put them in far enough to grab the torsion bar so as not to lose the spring washers.

Re: Novice Late Tiger Build.

I've painted the outer hull,the inside needs a bit of airbrushing just to tidy it up a bit. IMG_20190429_30945.jpg IMG_20190429_17297.jpg IMG_20190429_7460.jpg I've taken Vince's advise on-board and skimmed off the bolts.Ill try a little weathering but I don't want to spoil it so won't do too much.I...

Re: Novice Late Tiger Build.

I think you are right David,not sure about the weathering bit tho.😁 I've been doing some more weld seams,pretty much finished them on the lower hull for the moment I think.Im almost ready to put the final paint on the lower hull then refit the suspension and wheels.

Re: Novice Late Tiger Build.

A friend of mine made me these... IMG_20190428_36365.jpg IMG_20190428_48847.jpg I've put cast texture on them but I'm not sure if I'm happy with them.It took him a while to machine them (they are not cast)So if I don't use them I'll feel guilty.I realise they are mostly hidden but I will know they a...

Re: Wear on hull.

Thank you for your help fellas,but this brings me to another question...How do I scuff the outer bearing races so the locktite bonds to them?If tried a needle file and a scribe but neither seem to make much impression.I could put a diamond cutting disc on my dremmel if that's what I need to do.

Re: Wear on hull.

Thank you Brian,I haven't had the chance to do any reading up on it but that sounds like a plan. Adrian,no I haven't,Is that the recommended way of doing it? I didn't pick up on that in the instructions Adrian but now I've read a few posts I can see that it's the correct procedure. IMG_20190426_2415...

Wear on hull.

Having run the tank around for a short while before painting I've stripped everything off the Hull sides to do some weld seams and paint. I stripped off the drive sprocket/gearbox,I cleaned the sides up and noticed there is evidence of the drive gear rubbing against the Hull side. IMG_20190425_3981....

Re: Novice Late Tiger Build.

It's quite difficult to be spontaneous with the Camoflage when there are so many wheels.I was thinking if putting tiger stripes but it isn't correct for this particular tank so that scuppered me.

Re: Novice Late Tiger Build.

Hehe! The toys of a grown man. Running the Tiger doesn't half hammer the paint on the wheels,presumably this is quite normal.I have noticed that some of the suspension arms have come loose on the torsion bars.I didn't intend doing much running so didn't go over the top tightening things up.I did mak...

Re: Novice Late Tiger Build.

I've had it running around under it's own power,I had 93 links either side but the tracks were too slack.I removed one link either side which was better but for some reason one if the false wheel bolts snagged.
