An elefant! Your tank parking should be pretty impressive by now! :shock:
I am looking very much forward to following this build. :D

Hi Simon, Chris and David,
thank you for the nice welcome at the Elefant corner :D
I start with the motor grill and the barrel holder. Here are the photos from this area.

After the first parts of the barrel holder i made the distance sleeve between the nut and the holder. The nut got two handles soldered on.
The 3 covers are scatch built from aluminium for the existing covers at the front plate.
