Carried out washing using tamiya panel line accent colour (dark brown) to give it a dirty and used look. I did not really weathered the tank to be rusty  as I don't think most of the German Tigers lived that long to see rust... Laughing 



The back mud flap was given a bit more stained weathering.




Next step is to wire back all the pieces and assemble the tank...
I did not modify any of the wiring yet... Just put back everything the same I took it apart...


Tedious and boring part of the assembly... Fixing all the 16 wheels for the track...



Surprisingly the assembly is much more faster than taking it apart...
So here is the end product of my Tiger 1 tank...









The barrel which had a factory defect ... (fixed)





Hope you guys enjoy the transformation and pictures... Peace!!!

Some updates since my last post....
Have been a tiring week for me at work and this is what I did to relax myself.... Very Happy 
Did some modification to my Tiger I.
First of all I manage to get hold of Clark TK22 board... If you love tanks and you dont have one of this, go get one... Trust me its worth every penny... thumbs up.
But once you get this board you need to couple it with a good Speakers. Decided to go for the Visaton FRS7.

Becoz the TK22 does not come together with a receiver, you will need a good 2.4ghz radio that suits you...

Installed everything and abit of calibration with the controller and Im ready to demonstrate how it sounds....

Turn up your volume to witness the sound... (BEWARE OF POISON)

Recoil Barrel Mod.
I didnt want to start from scratch to mod this so I decided to mod Heng Long simple cheapo recoil unit. Bought from Taobao for SG$5. Trim the lower portion of the recoil unit and throw away. Retain the upper half portion if you still wanna use stock barrel elevations. Clark TK22 do have servo elevation function but that requires you to built your own brackets.


Took out the above white tab in picture and replace with a servo horn as seen below.


Did a home made l bracket to support a micro servo. You can actually bond the servo directly to the side but that will result in difficulty in removing if the servo kaput...
This design will guarantee easy replacement in case the servo for any reason need to be replaced.
Next is to link the servo horn to the sliding barrel. With  the aid of some heli spare I manage to find just the appropriate linkage.
The size or length of the servo horn will depend on how much recoil you want. As Im using the modded Heng Long recoil so Im actually limited to stock travel which is just nice to me actually.



Here is the side by side comparison of the airsoft barrel with my new aluminium barrel with the recoil unit. The aluminium barrel also bought from Taobao at SG$50 one set.


There is alot of trial and error that I did to get the function and recoil to sync and not bind. A little bit of filling with the needle file is needed to get the aluminium barrel to function smoothly.
I filed slightly more than required so as to compensate the paint thickness when start painting. Here is the functioning recoil barrel assembled minus the paint.

Take for instant the smoke unit... rotor selling $20 and there selling $5
The High tension flasher also $5

Final positioning of all the things in the turret.


Feed the high tension flash thru the barrel



Done the Barrel painting to match the turret.


Another View of the finish turret.


I did do any house keeping inside as I know Im gonna open the hull again.


Here is the end product again.


Video of full testing of the fully installed Tiger I.

The barrel recoil looks abit not smooth as I think its due to the servo. Might need to change to a better servo.

Hmmm... The pin pitch seems to be 1mm precisely. Could be a JST SHR series:

Have a look at the PDF on that page, it has exact measurements of the connector housings.

Or spend a lunch hour at Sim Lim Tower, they are likely to have it there.
If you can, get one already pre-crimped with wire. Those tiny connectors are extremely hard to crimp. I have done JST 2mm pitch, and that is already extremely difficult.

Thanks Laneboysrc... I think i have manage to find the connector type. Its a molex 1.25mm 2 pin.cheers 


for those who intending to upgrade to TK22 you might need to have this connector to connect your IR Led. If not you are a sitting duck...Rolling Eyes
