I shall add the slant! Thanks Kent 8)
That bin looks like it was welded as I can't see any rivets?

I'm looking for a Tiger1 barrel and or a mantlet, any condition is just fine.
The turret kit bin printed very nicely and I should have some photos by the end of the day of it finished. 8)

Looking good. I guess it was worth the aggravation you had to get it printed. What was causing the problem? Did you find out?

Finished the bin for now. 8) cheers vince, the printer was playing up some 2 hours into a 19 hr print, I bought the only grey filament that I could a couple of months back in lock down, not my normal make or supplier and boy it was crap, breaking as it was brittle and jamming the filament sensor so breaking off before the feed unit so the machine just carried on printing well into the night! Most annoying but it's done now. 8)
Vince what do you think about cading a cover for the earlier feifel air boxes to make them look like the later ones?

That looks great.
Vince what do you think about carding a cover for the earlier feifel air boxes to make them look like the later ones?
Do you mean like this:

Or a simple cover to hide the top of the cannisters and make it look similar to the above photo?

You got it just the top to hide the canisters. 8) do you need the height of the canisters from the centre section that you caded before?

That looks the business Vince! I need to give you the dimensions of the air pipe hole in the one end, which I will do straight after my lunch. It would be dodgy to drill it being so thin.
Simon they do teach you a whole lot more swear words but when it all comes together they are great!
