Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

Decided to do two empty shell casings. At first I was going to make them with a resin 3D printer from a commercial printer, but then decided to do them myself in brass. The bottom rim should be 18.5mm for 1:6 scale so ideally I should use a 20mm brass round bar which I did not have. I have 22mm but ...

Re: Barrel Stabilization

I like to work, but I tend to hate cleaning up after work because I'm too lazy, which slows the work down. :) :) I know that feeling all too well. I had a quick look at the last two tutorials just to see what code he is using and was amazed how short the code was. I guess most of the filtering and ...

Re: Barrel Stabilization

Looking forward to see your latest video when it becomes available.

That link to that website looks to be very interesting and will surely keep me busy for some time.

Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

This wasn't planned. Made some drawings of the ammo used with the KwK36 Tiger 1 main gun.

Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

I'm calling it finished.

Made the hinge for the gurtsack lid from a piece of black cloth and glued in place. Painted it and fitted to Mark's MG bracket. It's plastic (resin) but it's "close enuf" for me.

Still two items pending on the to-do list.

Armstrong 100 ton cannon
