That ammo for the MG really looks real. Also reminded me that some day I need to get that ammo sack also. Is that an FOA item?
It does look like one. DiD also once made a fabric 'gurtsack' but it was included with an expensive figure.

just a quick update, I am down to the last unopened bag of options for my tank (i think). I can't believe it. hopefully i don't find another one after i put all this stuff in the Tiger. Sometimes procrastination will keep me from even touching something like this for weeks. I have never even opened this bag out of fear of losing pieces inside but i have touched it dozens of times over the last couple years and dragged it back and forth from my house to my shed at least a couple of times. I am always afraid of losing parts when I move my workspace and try to get comfortable working on the project. at this point i am missing only one part and its some crank handle on the very bottom of the back of the tank. ill have to order a replacement unless someone has a spare i can purchase.

the part i cannot find; CEO636

Brian, I'm not using that part, so if I find it, it's yours.
Just give me some time to look for it. Hopefully the shops elves haven't nicked it!!

Thank you! Vince, regardless of whether you can find it or not. That is very generous you you. I have to say this forum is a big help.

Found it Brian.

Can you send me your postal address via PM?

I guess I'll be sending two packets to the States this week.

Whew! Been way too long since I post or made progress on my Tiger. Today I got the audio and motion controls back inside the tank and ran a test. First time I have had audio since I had the shorted-out audio module repaired by the factory some months ago. Audio is back and turret turn is working nicely also.

I finally got the elevation built. No recoil yet but I couldn’t resist going for a spin outside with the turret animation.

Brian, your build looks great.

Thanks for the video, it's inspired me to return to mine to try to figure out why the track keeps coming off the drive sprocket. It's not much fun when it cannot drive around like yours.

cheers... Tom
