Hi John,

Yes the floor and supports are resin but I have added strength to the floor with L shaped beams and the support arms have metal rods in them. I have moved all the electrics so it will fit in, I even have room to add the rest of the floor. unfortunately it means I cannot add the engine in the engine bay, all the battery's and switches are in there.

Paul. :wink:

After reading some of the new posts and seeing that one or two of you are detaining the interior of your Tigers, I thought I would share this book. The Research Squad, A Modern Study of Fgst.NR,250031. Its the Early Tiger 1 from the Wheatcroft collection.

I bought some parts for the Cannon balance spring to finish the interior of my Tiger Ausf E, but I couldn't find a really good picture of how it should look together.

So I trawled the internet without success until I remembered this book..... note to self, check you own book collection first :lol:

So if you are looking for images of the early ausf e spring balance here it is.

The parts are not too far out, so I can rejig them into what I want.
