Novice Late Tiger Build.

Post by Glen Clark » Mon Feb 11, 2019 5:40 pm

I am a complete novice when it comes to 6th scale builds so I will be learning as I go along.I used a Compact kit Pak 43 to get me into build mode.

I've had the Tiger kit for around 12 months but have been busy doing other stuff so have let it in till now to start.I needed to move stuff out of the way so I could get at the boxes.

Plus I needed room to sort the bits I think I need to be going on with.

I thought I'd start with just a quick clean up of the parts as I use them to remove the milling oil stains ECT.

So I just used a sanding sponge wet.

Job done....

Hope you guys don't mind but I will have to lean on you for any tip and forgive me for any noob questions I may ask.

Good lad

Once you start building the Tiger, you'll get the confidence up and probably sell one of those bikes to fund your new found addiction :D :D

The work on the Tiger has stalled slightly,I did mange to put the lower hull together just to satisfy the child in me.Im sure Kian has sent me a bigger tank than anybody else's.😊I don't remember the ones I saw at Tigerfest looking this big.

Slightly off topic but may be of interest to some,the reason the Tank build has stalled is because I promised myself I would finish installing the motor in this...

I hate with a passion working on cars,I use to love it.For info it's a 2009 Honda S2000 which I've owned for 10 years.Its been through various guises,380 hp with a Supercharger and with different setups 508 and lastly 550 hp turbo on a sick engine with severe piston slap.The motor in the Pic is a fully rebuilt forged engine Capable of around 1000-1200 hp.Ill only be running around 800hp which is around the best I can get with the current Turbo.

It's got all nice bits to go with the big power,Quaife sequential gearbox with straight cut gears and pneumatic paddle shift,big Cobra Mustand rear diff and big driveshafts brakes ECT.

I just feel I've grown out of the car because 550 hp was scary and I'm to old for scary.

Hope I haven't bored you too much.

I've done a little bit on the Tank,I needed to strip it to its component parts so a friend could take some measurements.He wants to build a Storm Tiger from scratch...After he has built his Elefant from scratch.😊

I've just countersunk some holes so I can fill and sand.them flush be for paint.Strange but at the moment I have to tear myself away from putting it together.

Don't worry - that is perfectly normal!
