Making hatches fro the Leopard

Leopard 2A5 DK 1/16 tankPosted by xilsoe Jul 18, 2013 13:38:48
The time has come for me to start making my own parts for the modification I am doing. I am starting with the hatches on the rear end. They don't seem too hard. Here are some photos taken during the process:

The hatches are 24mm wide and 13mm high. The fixation plates are about 5mm high and 4mm wide. I am using 1mm brass rod for the handle. The handle is 7mm wide. The screws and nuts are M0.8.

As can be seen, I have also put the convoy marker in place.

The next thing will be to get the hatches painted and to get them in place and then to do the top fixation plates.

I also made a camera mount for this tank. I'll write about that in the next post.
