David, Have you tried the clearance for the gun elevation motor over your speakers ? I might be wrong but it might be a bit close.

Dennis I change the wires on the speakers to come out the sides and turned them. The clearance for the gun elevation motor over the speakers works now. Thanks for the heads up.

Hi David,

It's nice to see your Panzer coming along. Have you got a colour scheme yet?
