Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

Yesterday was an especially good day. Took a deep breath and did all the zimmeritt on the turret wrap. Everything went as planned and all the preparation I did was a great help. Today I cleaned it up a little by removing some excesses and giving it a light sanding. All but one of the spare track lin...

Re: Chieftain build by Phil Woollard.

Don't ask me where I found these little brass dodads but they sure do look the part. It seems there are various names for them. Used mostly in leather work and garments. There are various sizes also . https://www.amazon.co.uk/sourcingmap®-100pcs-Plated-Hollow-Eyelets/dp/B077GBR6K9/ref=sr_1_5?crid=1...

Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

Thanks Simon for that info. Would prefer to use the same pattern.

I am not modelling any specific Tiger although I have the paint masks for the markings of this one:-

Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

So Mark, just to see if I have understood correctly, if I use the same pattern as the hull for the turret then I should be OK.

Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

Just to answer my own question which I had in the previous post. From period photos, it seems that the zimmeritt was actually applied to the turret behind the spare tracks. I guess this is going to create another problem for me but we'll see. Also, looking at these photos, would I be correct in sayi...

Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

Even the best of plans gets shot down the drain! :evil: I had hoped that this week I would finish and do a final assembly of all the mantlet components but it wasn't to be.

Re: Chinese Eye Chieftain

Great. Another start of a new build. Where's my popcorn?

Don't have one of those sensitive drill attachments but heard good things about them.

Re: counter balance weight size

I tend to agree with Adrian regarding the diameter. 220mm or thereabout. One still needs the length though.

Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

Thanks Glen for the photo and Mark for the info.

Glen, did you finish yours also. Phil has finished his in super quick time and Brian has also finished his. I'm still lagging behind.
