Now I have done them all.
Quite a lot of work to tighten up these small pieces.
But the result exceeded my expectations.

Stay safe out there.

And today I started fixing my periscope on the turret.
The periskop I made in my resin printer.
One pic with flash and one without.

Stay safe out there my friends

Not ready by far, but ready enough for a meeting in Denmark this weekend. 😁
Have to get out and have a breather now when I have the second shot against covid also. :)

Stay safe and have fun.

Looking great Robert. I love all your brass details. The storage bin, mud flaps, and side fenders are awesome!

Keep up the great work.
Bob

Need help on this one, Please.
If you look att the yellow arrows you will see the sheet metal floor folds twice.
But when I look at drawinga of the Tiger the floor is straight.
I want to water jet cut new Pannier Gusset (The wavy panel)

Any one made this change, and change the floor?
Can you buy that floor as a spare part from a new batch?

Have a nice day and stay safe
Robert

My late Tiger is the 2017 model and it has the same two bends.

I think the line drawing (your first photo) is also showing the two bends although they look to be smaller angles.

The real Tiger only has one bend, so the pannier floor ends up higher than the bottom edge of the front glacis plate.

This has been discussed on here before. I can only remember one person who has modified the sponson floors but I can't remember who that was.
