Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

It is, but it's for too much detail for the likes of me.😁

Re: Novice Late Tiger Build.

Thanks Vince,Adrian as I'm only in the test fit stage I did fit 2 but they seemed to stop the arms fitting up to the Hull so I've left them out for now.

Re: Novice Late Tiger Build.

Thanks for that Vince,I'll measure mine to see what they are.Did you have any trouble with the idler Vince.?I see Brian had trouble with his tracks riding the drive sprocket,I think he skimmed 2mm off the idler. Once I've run mine around I shall remove all the wheels and suspension arms and finish p...

Re: Novice Late Tiger Build.

Re: Novice Late Tiger Build.

I put a couple of wheels on and a short length of track,I'm hoping to have the thing running around under it's own power within the next couple of weeks. It's not as easy as you think,I have been juggling suspension arms around because not all of them seem to go fully in.Also the front sprocket seem...

Re: Zimmerite

Thank you all for the advise,I'll go with just the tile adhesive then.Ill also use car body filler for cleaning up the screw heads.....Anybody want to buy 1 gallon of PVA glue.😊

Zimmerite

Although I'm not quite ready yet it won't be long before I'm putting Zimmerite in my Tank.Ive bought some ready made Tile Adhesive and some Pva Glue.Is there a magic number or some sort of consistency I need to look for when i mix the Adhesive and Pva?Also could I use it for filling in the countersu...

Re: Novice Late Tiger Build.

Thank you Vince,fair praise indeed coming from you with your skills.I always make sure I can go back to original before I have a go at something.

I'm sure you will soon be up to speed once you start using an airbrush.

Re: Novice Late Tiger Build.

I've been painting the Hull today. IMG_20190403_20950.jpg I've done the inside White,White isn't a clever colour to learn how to setup a new spray gun.There are a couple of small runs but it isn't bad. IMG_20190403_33651.jpg IMG_20190403_50869.jpg I can start looking at putting the torsion bars and ...

Re: Novice Late Tiger Build.

Hi Allen,I started by stippling Vallejo plastic putty,then I etched them,I'm not sure if they needed etching but I did it anyway.I then put a solid coat of Burnt Umber and misted Mahogany over it.I tried some light rust wash but it didn't take very well.The final part was I listed Matt Black on the ...

Re: Novice Late Tiger Build.

More painting,I did the weld seams on the bottom of the Hull so it was ready for paint.I had some Dunkelgelb made up in a 1 ltr tin with 1 ltr of thinners so I've got 2 litres which should be enough.The bloke who mixed it went off the code rather than my sample and it's a bit greener.No matter I'll ...

Re: Novice Late Tiger Build.

I stole your idea with the cake icing thing Vince.I was on a roll so just went sailing past the point where I'll Zimmerite without even noticing.😊
