Panzer 2 turret

Recommended Posts

Evening All,

 

I decided to add some detail to the front of the hull while I was waiting for the vacuum components to arrive, the small maintenance hatch doesn't open, it's just there for show. The brackets either side. are to wrap a tow steel rope around.

The locking mechanism seems overly complex to my mind but it was interesting to construct.

My version.

On the top of the hatch there's a square socket so that one can open the hatch from the  outside, I used an old 3/8" drive socket and brazed it onto the end of the main shaft.

A bit of a short update but that's all I have had time to achieve lately.

Not retired, just very tired.  I have always been like it, whether it's at work or home, I want the project finished so that I can start the next one. That's not to say I don't enjoy it, or that I am rushing it, I just need to see forward progress at a pace that I feel is acceptable. I plan each stage, and try to foresee any problems, so I  build each component multiple times in my mind and even in my sleep, that way all my workshop time is productive. I still find problems, cock up but that's me just being male. 

Thanks again for taking an interest and the time to comment.
