KT 40

Post by Charles A Stewart »

36 road wheels, 1152 parts, not to mention individual ops/wheel.
I am only learning by the way and currently rationalising the KT parts for storage as I would like to complete Chieftain first.
However I am finding something call "mission creep" with both projects, i.e put hull together( dry fit), armopax, eBay, KT tracks, etc.

I do like the annodized track though, where in the UK can get this stuff?

Cheers all

I've got Chieftain stashed all round the house at the moment.

I Really need to sort that out. Starting two models would drive me round further the twist.

How far are you with the Chieftain. :?:

Thanks John, for your reply.

I will post on the Chieftain forum. Chieftain things here, I believe we will get into trouble.

However, cracked the photo thingy!

Anyway what I now have is a very expensive (themed?) storage box until it is time for the build.

I will as the evenings draw in, clean, prime etc. sub assemblies, but not yet.

Cheers Charles

Hi all,

La'al progress due to VCG, many will suffer this, its also holding up Chieftain too, sorry "VERY COLD GARAGE".

If this is old news then fair play and apologies. I recently had a circular from "AVIATION BOOK CENTRE", Supertiger, reprint £55 & Jagdtiger @£35.

Cheers all

Good evening all.

Confession time: I bought a milling machine in January, it was a second(bought & rejected), however repaired & a lot cheaper than a new one. It will doo for what I am doing. Where am I going with this you wonder?

Presently rationalizing the workshop/garage, so I have taken the opportunity to have a go at detailing the bottom of the KT (I fear John Clarke's mirror) and get some practice with the milling machine. Once done It will be moved out of the way so I can move back onto the Chieftain.
And so it starts 2022.jpg
On a recent visit to the Tank Museum I was able to obtain some photos of the various belly plates/access hatches, see below

This is the water drain. Has anyone a picture of what was attached via the six bolt holes?

Take care all.
