Would anyone have good photos of the breech operating crank mechanism handle?
Had a look but could not find a clear photo showing that handle. Best depiction I could find was in the Research Squad Tiger book (which I assume you already have) pages 146, 148 and 150.

Thanks Vince. Yes, have the research squad book. I am picking up a good bit from that. Got a copy recently. Worth having.

John have a look at the link Chang posted above. Nearly at the bottom of the page are two very clear photos of the handle you are looking for.

Chang, thanks for that link. I have it bookmarked as seems to have a lot of other useful information.

Very helpful Chang. Answers a lot of questions I had. I am trying to make a reasonable representation of the breech. I don’t think I have the skills or the will to add functions. I’m sure someone will.
