What would be the most effective anti tank weapon for a plane to mount? Canons?

Two 37 mm Flak 18 guns on a Stuka Ju 87G worked pretty well.

Hi Vince, Those tools of your is not 6th scale icons ones but Armorpax. https://www.armorpax.net/wwii-german-parts In my eyes I would only say ok to the axe and hammer handle, spade blade and the wirecutter. The rest is not what they looked like IRL. Mike got them pretty right (exept for his wirecut...

Re: Late Tiger 1 commission build by Phil Woollard

Nice work Phil.

Did you add the triangular support under the Bosch lamp bracket?
I used it to cover the wires under the welds.

Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

Vince another problem you will find with the hatches, well the periscope really, is the barrel will come into contact with the periscope body as the turret traverses, that's why the real thing had spring loaded periscopes that folded around their mid section to avoid any damage! :shock: No no no Ph...
