Here is another new addition. First of the four 88mm ammo bins. This is a heavy item. Over 1/2 Kg. Over 1 kg when ammo fitted. I was hoping to have them finished for Bovington but no chance. Not looking forward to making the others and I need seven more as two Tigers to be fitted with them.

Anyway here are some photos of first attempt.

I will make the central roof support also. I designed the ammo boxes to fit the interior of the Armortek Tiger 1 so some details will not be as the original.
thanks yves, see you at TANKMOD. :D

Put the box in place and re-assembled the hull roof and turret. Bugger. It does'nt fit. :cry: Snagging on the base of the turret. This is the problem with building without screws. I will have to try taking apart and see if can be fixed. BLOWTORCH. Otherwise it's a bin for the bin. :( At least I now know how to proceed with the other bins.
