Building my Limber

Post by Alan McDade » Wed Dec 27, 2017 3:42 pm

Hi folks - new guy here building the 25 pounder and limber. So I thought I would start with the limber and have completed a dry build but noticed that the doors do not open fully. Anyone else have this issue and how did you go about fixing it?

The clash appears to be at the hinges not allowing the doors to open fully. They will only open to about 85 degrees whereas photos I have seen they appear to open more than even 90 degrees?

Advise appreciated.

Have a look here:

In it Dave says he had to re-profile the hinges to get the doors to open fully.

Thanks,
I found the part about modifying the hinges. Confirms what I thought needed to be done.
Received Dave's Limber and 25 Pounder upgrade kits this morning.
Absolute class and the detail is superb. I am going to busy over the next few months.
