Re: The Littlefield collection.

That’s only 8 hours from me. I think I need to plan a trip.

I was really expecting fire somewhere in the video, especially when you fired at the truck. 240 lbs, wow!

Working on Road Wheel Assemblies

Hey everyone, I'm currently working on the road wheel assemblies and the nut that goes through the side hull and suspension bar then into the suspension shaft is supposed to be an M6x25 CSK (per the manual). I looked in the parts list and I was supplied 12 M6x30s so I have to assume that is what the...

Some priming has been done

So I've made a bit of progress. Luckily we've had two amazing days in a row so I've been able to work outside cleaning, prepping and painting. Plus I have most of today to continue to tinker.

Merry Christmas!

Loctite and painted wheels

As I'm in the process of cleaning and priming I was curious if anyone has had issues with adhesion of the tires to the wheels after the wheels had been painted? I'm wondering if I should tape the adhesion surface off for the priming/painting or is that overkill? I do note that most builds that I've ...

Zimmerit tool

Good morning everyone (at least it is here), I was reading the updates and going through Brian’s build I started to consider the idea of applying a zimmerit look onto my tank when I get to that point. I found this thread talking about it and the tools used: https://www.armortek.co.uk/Forum3b/viewtop...

Re: Adam's Panzer III build

So this is an effect of the aluminum conditioner prior to painting. Apparently it’s called a chrome conversion coating. Interesting.

Re: Re-release of the King Tiger - End 2019

Simon, it looks like that one tank is in a display case of some kind. Can you zoom out and take a picture of that as I'm curious to see what you've done there?
