Great progress Youngjae. Or should I say Bae. What's the proper way?

Re: Florians FAMO build

What a beautiful wooden crate. Reminded me of the film "Raiders of the lost ark".

Re: Milling Machine

Hi Greg I’m minded to go for the Warco WM12 Mill but then I wonder if I should be looking at something smaller, perhaps the Proxxon MF70. I see this question crop up many times on model engineering sites and the usual suggestion is to get the largest one can afford. Keep in mind that you will need t...

Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

Have all the parts to finish off the barrel sleeve. Tiger 645.JPG Cute little things but fiddly to handle. As the screws will not be functional, I just drilled and glued them in. Also wasn't in the mood of setting up my 20kg dividing head and just used a tailor's inch tape to locate their positions....

Re: Chieftain build by Phil Woollard.

Hi Phil

Are those steel sprocket teeth?

Not envying you regarding the square headed bolts. Found some on ebay which could be modified but smallest size is 6mm which I suspect is too big for you. Still it would be a laborious process.

Simon, I suspect Kent is not visiting the forum anymore. Wish I was living somewhere close to a real Tiger 1.

Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

As I said earlier, I am planning what to do on the muzzle brake and barrel and have a couple of questions which hopefully somebody can help me out with. I have been looking at a lot of photos of the Vimoutiers and Saumur Tiger 1s but still not certain about some things so here goes. Tiger 643.jpg As...

Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

Turret wrap finished and turret roof weld seam still in one piece until now. Last thing to check is if the turret roof still fits ….. Tiger 641.JPG Tiger 642.JPG Still fits. Again thanks to David for giving me the idea of a slip-in turret roof. Starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel (it'...

Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

Applied weld seams to the upper track link holders and after some unconventional masking started painting the turret with the basecoat.

I think it will get three coats of paint as the tile adhesive tends to absorb the paint.

Re: Chieftain kit arrival

although the speed of the work is somewhat slower because of the simultaneous painting and assembly work.
That's not slow. That's super fast. :D
My tank is getting very nice.

Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

Finished making the turret roof weld seam. The cling film method worked well. How long will the weld seam survive before it gets broken? That's another story.

Now to finish painting the turret with the basecoat.
