Can`t add your`e picture, wrong file format and it is the size of my shedwall.
If you use a digi camera use the jpg settings (lowest format) ,take the picture open it with the software the camera came with resize and save it in to your`e documents. Its has to be about 150 k to able to download with the browser button on the forum.

You get cheap ones for about 20 quid I think from places like argos or amazon, I only paid 35 for my with charger,batterie and all the cables. The are handy and you can stick them in your`e top shirt pocket. Until you are sorted I can do it the way I did that one for the time being.

I wait until I got all the frames and the keel before I start. Better that way I think and I can line them up perfect with the help of a jig.

Good idea one major problem I found was getting the keel completely even on both sides top and bottom I had to redo it a couple of times.

I used to watch the German site to see what was coming with the Tiger, however you might not get what they have the British Tiger didn't have PE handles that Germany had and a couple of other small thing's. :ugeek:

Hi Crispy Thanks and same to you. Got issue 17 today, I have to wait 2 weeks for issues 18 and 19 then I can make some progress with this thing. I will post some photos in the new year to show people.
Are you still not able to upload photos, could you use somebodies phone for example, I am sure we would all be interested in your work.
Once again all the best.

Sorry no access to any phones (: just had to rip two frames apart!!!! So wanted to give everyone a heads up. On the left side be careful of parts 55_56 make sure you don't block the slit thing, at the top for the strip of wood to sit on.
