Photo of the return roller mounting and castellated nuts on the original shown on my previous post. If you look at the transmission hatches photo below that, you'll also see castellated nuts holding the front hull applique armour plate. Regards. Stephen

A sense of progress after wading through treacle...... All the torsion bars are now complete and one side of modified suspension arms are done. Also reversed all the bolts on bump stops and return roller housings so that the nuts face outwards. Now just the other six suspension arms to do. http://i3...

Time for an update

I really appreciate the interest in this build, Dale and all who've taken the trouble to comment and swop ideas. I suppose all of us have experienced the one pace forward, two back situation. I seem to have spent the last four weeks working hard and not making visible progress. Removing the grub scr...

Derek - the roadwheel clearance is fine - I can measure it for you at the weekend, if you wish. The answer to the return rollers on the Stug III is probably "it varies". I believe the Stugs were constructed from a variety of chassis, some based on earlier variants of the Pz III. We know that the pos...

Thanks Lee. I can see why you red Loctite and have used 273, which I believe should be OK. It was the cross drilling that I'm unsure about - do you mean you've drilled endwise or across the shaft radially and inserted a pin to prevent rotation of the arm in relation to the shaft? If so, could you ex...

Lee - thanks. Very useful. Could you explain how you've cross drilled the suspension arms, maybe a photo? Many thanks. Stephen

Cone head bolts

Simon - looks fantastic. Can you help with a source for the cone head bolts on your pistol port? I need about 80 for the Pz III. Gill has some with hex face but I also need plain ones such as you have. Thanks. Stephen

Dale - correct, there are four cone headed hex bolts, those on the forward face of the gun mantlet. All the rest are conical. Gill has sent me some samples, which I'll collect at the weekend. Regards. Stephen
