For some time I have been meaning to complete the drivers compartment with the drivers visor detail, over the last few weeks I have been spurred on by an event in Belgium so this was completed painted and installed

Great looking piece Rivet 8-)

I'd hate to have to drive a 50 ton tank whilst looking through a slot that small :shock:

It seems hard to believe that you can improve on your build Riv.....but you have! Amazing as always.

A very nice bit of detailing, well done. Now you must try to hide those glass fibre rovings

Easter Time I decided to sell my much loved Tiger and the new owner asked me to make the commanders seat from brass as the resin one was weak and broke a few times, Steve asked me to make the seat fully-functioning so I set about completely re-making the commanders seat from brass the top seat is has a working spring loaded lock so that the top seat can be either locked in the top position or in the lower position the seat pads are made from leather.

G’day Brett, I know the Tiger was very nice but too be honest I prefer building them than driving them, at the moment I’m thinking another Tiger and start all over again, at the moment I still have x2 Schwimmwagen, x2 Kübelwagen and a Kettenkrad to complete.

Did you ever complete the Tiger and Kübelwagen.
