Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

During the last couple of weeks I have been on and off experimenting with painting the tools and today I decided to stop playing with them.

Not 100% happy with them but they will have to do as is.

Re: Late Tiger 1 commission build by Phil Woollard

It's going to be a tight squeeze and I was going to ask about the batteries but I see you are going to use four small ones. I guess using a combination of series and parallel wiring to get the 24V and increasing capacity. Is modelling the turret basket going to affect the turret turn, elevation and ...

Re: Tiger 131 In South Wales

I like it. What is it that you are not happy with? The colour or the pattern? Give it a couple of days to get accustomed to it.

Re: Late Tiger 1 commission build by Phil Woollard

Phil, just a quick question. What material did you use for the engine bay walls?

Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

Thanks for the comments Bob and Mike.

Mike, following what you said regarding the tubes, I have decided to use 4mm tubes.

Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

Finished the seven periscope armoured guards. Couldn't wait to get them etch primed. As soon as you touch them they start rusting. Blame the hot and humid weather here. Tiger 571.JPG Tiger 572.JPG Also added a backplate to each guard. On the front facing guard added another hatch stop. Vince

Re: king tiger (2013) shut down

Could it be weak batteries? They may show that they give the correct voltage but when you put them under a load the voltage drops dramatically. Just a thought.

Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

Still working on the cupola periscope guards but not much to show at this stage. Today I wanted to do something different so did a 3D CAD drawing of the turret ventilator. I am still relatively new at this CAD thingy so it was good to brush up the little I have learnt. Turret Ventilator Components.j...

Re: Late Tiger 1 commission build by Phil Woollard

I used the same tile adhesive for the zim. As a first-timer I found it quite good and forgiving. When I removed my first attempt I had to use a wood chisel and hammer!

P.s. How do I get an Armortek cap?

Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

Repositioned the hatch arm U handle. Also made a hatch stop. Marked the periscope guards to be cut to give them that sloping look at the back.
