Hello again,

I have turned all my attention onto the lower running gear of the Tiger 2 and will alter from the build instructions.
The first step will have the sides and base of the hull painted before gluing all the running gear onto the tank .



I have test fitted the torsion bars into each side and found there is a lot of flexibility in the wheel arms, there is a lug that apparently is meant to lock the arm in but there is still movement on the wheel arm once inserted in place.

Looking around on the net there has been some horrible build attempts on the torsion bars and it's with this series of photo's to show that Takom have manufactured the model correctly albeit with a little sanding on the torsion bar arms.







Michael
