Re: 2019 KT Option packs

Hi Monique
Thanks for the latest update. Totally understand the situation and thanks for your efforts in keeping the factory ticking over.
Until the option packs are ready, I can always tow the KT around with my Tiger 1, using my own sound effects!
Hope you and all the staff stay safe.
Phil.

Re: Hull construction problems of king tiger

Hi John Firstly, congratulations for getting the bend out of the side and pannier plates, at least you won’t have to alter your top decking to fit the banana shaped hull! If it’s any consolation, my pannier side plates fit worse than yours...I’ll now have to cover my hull with zimmerit to cover up t...

Re: assembling lower hull on 2019 king tige

Hi Andy Having just wrestled my way through building the hull, I know what you mean. Because the hull sides and pannier sides are warped probably due to machining procedures, they’re never going to line up perfectly. These kits aren’t tamiya kits that snap together, they require a bit of engineering...

Re: Resilient wheels

Hi Bryan
I tightened mine the same way as you. I’m pretty sure the two metal “discs” are touching each other when the nuts are tight. I used 45 years experience as a mechanical engineer to gauge that they’re tight!

Re: KT Sprocket Teeth Alignment On Hubs

Hi Mike
Glad you got things sorted out. Beer usually solves a lot of problems!
You might need a bigger fridge!
All the best, Phil.

Re: Sprocket Teeth Alignment On Hubs

Hi Mike
Could one of the sprockets be machined on the wrong side? I haven’t checked mine yet.
