  • That does look like an awesome kit in the 1/6 scale I would definitely attempt it but that is out of my budget I usually stick to the 1/35 scale armor and the tiger is one of my favorites very nice work Tony

  • Another great video Tony,i wish this was uploaded a year ago,the front sprockets i tapered the teeth the exact same way,i did run a dremmel burr tool over the surface of the hubs to give them a cast look and remove the machine marks

  • Very nice Tony, really coming along you are almost at the end of all the reparative parts of the build. Did you have much trouble fitting the motors in after building the hull, and drive train? I see from the comments below that you have secured a pershing, nicely done did you have to bribe the misses?

    • Hi Gary, Thanks again for your support. The motors were no trouble at all. I thought they could be, but they ended up being one of the less troublesome parts to install, as there is ample room within the hull to work and the gears meshed together perfectly. Yes, I have pre-ordered my M26....not sure when they will be ready to dispatch...March maybe, but I wanted to get one secured as I think these will be popular....and yes, there was a lot of domestic diplomacy undertaken to allow this to happen...pretty much had to beg 🙂

  • Morning Tony great video as always .don't understand why you have to superglue the bearings into the return roller from each side as per the instructions. Surely years down the road and heaven forbid a bearing malfunctions that's going to be a pain to get that old bearing back out .

    • Thanks Stephen and thanks also for your continued support...yes that did cross my mind as well, but thought I would glue them as instructed, as they could work themselves loose over time...I guess that these tanks have to take a lot of stress when driven...I could try a hot air gun on them if that ever happened...but hoping that will never transpire..

  • Thank you so much for this series. I hope to do an armortek build in the future, and have been loving your videos. Oddball from East Coast Armory’s various series on KZhead are amazing as well, however he doesn’t devote as much time to walking us through the actual build as you do. I find your approach extremely helpful in learning what I’ll need to do (and watch out for) when the time comes. Please keep them coming!

    • Hi Jeffrey, thank you so much for watching and your lovely comment. I am so glad that my videos seem to be doing what I wanted them to do..I too have watched Oddballs videos and they are amazing, but I found them more directed to the advanced builders..I am a complete novice when it comes to building these tanks and wanted to share my journey from that perspective. There are more to come and next video up will be uploaded this weekend...Please keep watching and thanks again for your support...Tony

  • Numbering your posts would be a great help.to.t n one of us who came on late. Your build and comments are great, informative and entertaining.

    • Hi Steve, ah yes..you are completely correct...the downside of me being a complete newbie to KZhead...Great suggestion and I will definitely do that once I start my build of the M26 Pershing. Thank you for your very positive comments as this is exactly what I wanted to do...Hope you continue watching and stick with it as I have another tank to build soon and a scale bridge which I am planning to build to allow my tiger to have some obstacles to deal with. Thanks for watching and hope I continue to inform and entertain.

  • Talk about being patient, I have been building a 1/8 scale 1932 Rolls Royce kit that was produced in Italy. The kit was produced by a company called Pocher. The kit has 2000 parts& fastners of all types of materials. I have been working on this kit since 2010! I have added about $1500.00 in upgrades and scrach built parts. While I save for a armoetek kit, I hpor to finish this kit . I know about patience and frustrations!!

    • I have the Pocher Bugatti and Alfa. Some of the building is fun some is atrocious. I persist because the results will be worth it. I had the Testarossa kit as well. It was so crude and toy-like I literally threw it in the bin!

    • Hi David, thanks for watching and your comment. I know Pocher...their kits are insane...brilliant detailing..I have only seen their bike kits, I bet the RR is a bit special..Wow 2010...that is patient....I hope you do get round to building an Armortek tank...you would love every minute of the build even the really frustrating parts.
