Hi ! would anyone happen to have the part number for the one piece brass turret ring for what I believe was on the 2nd generation tiger kit ?

On the 2010 Mid Tiger and 2012 Late Tiger, the turret bearing part number was CE0490.

No ball bearings then, just a brass ring around the hole in the top of the hull.

If you can, I would seriously recommend following Steve Stuarts mods to fit a lazy susan bearing instead. I'm going to be doing that to a 205 Mid Tiger sometime soon. It makes such a difference, especially to a tank with as heavy a turret as the Tiger.

:D Hi there Adrian
I would be interested in doing that turret ring mod to my tiger which is a 2 piece ring. I am hoping you will be doing lots of photos and part numbers as to where we can buy the bits. great idea for an upgrade kit ???

Hi Adrian, Andy
Here is a quick look at what I did a few years ago, the bearing is off ebay, router and a block of wood to steady it small cuts (the casting is very soft), cad off to the laser cutter for a new main gear and spacer, a few holes and 2 clips to hold the turret on. I also put smaller ball between each of the standard ball to stop the pinching that was happening then a little graphite powder and it is good to go. Pm me if you would like the dxf file for the laser cutting?

Thanks
Liam
