A wise man told me to redo and do the right thing. :D
Now is the convoy lamp left to do/buy. At the rear end.

If any of you kown how the the end of the starter crank looks like. Please let me know.

Hi Robert,

Not a Tiger1 but here are pix of a Panther starter crank end.
Both was for the Maybach HL230 engine so it would look the same for the Tiger1

Kind regards
Kent

Starting to do the Rommel box on my Tiger.
OMG. What small the rivets are.
Every single rivet is secured and soldered.

Continued and soldering, hmm it never seems to end.
But now I probably see the end, this has been really hard for eyes, shoulders and trembling hands.
Oh all these reinforcement solders to do.
I'm glad it's done soon.
