I am in the process of making a shield for the pcb it will be fitted tomorrow when the epoxy resin that I have used to fill the holes in the bottom of the hull dries. all I have to do is decide where I am going to put the smoke switch and sound pot.

here is a link to my topic about where I put the main power switch.

I just used a bit of cardboard wedged between the PCB and the gear housing. Works fine.

I find it easier to put the battery in with the battery's power connector end towards the rear of the Tiger tank, as shown in the picture
Cheers but your power cable is waaay longer than mine so I cant' do that.
I took the tank apart and desoldered the wires from the switch and PCB undid the knot and resoldered the wires. Because the battery in the photo is from an old rc car that no longer works so I had to lengthen the tanks wires.
the wires on the black battery are shorter than the wires on the stock HL battery as shown in the picture, but since I lengthened the power lead I have moved the main power switch in to the turret
Yikes! You need get an oil-shield over those geas! That PCB is covered with oil [X(]

Guys, Here is one solution!

Thats your opinion, I have no idea of where you sit geographically but if you're flying to get deliveries it must be pretty remote. Heng Long deal with distributors/retailers, not end-customers. Hence you deal with the retailer/ebayer and not the factory.

Most of the guys on this board who have Heng long have been able to turn them into satisfying RC models. Sorry we were not able to help you. As a matter of fact you may be the only person this forum has been unable to help. All the upgrade parts are avaliable online at many different retailers as well as avaliable on eBay

Good luck on your Tamiya adventure. I hope for the King Tigers sake, nothing breaks.

Here is another option as well. I installed a bulkhead between the motor and the electronics. A thin sheet of styrene is then used to cover the entire gearbox section of the tank. It is glued at the bulkhead end and then tucked underneath the plastic I beam glued to the front.

Thanks.

While waiting on new releases I turned my attention to the interiors of the tanks I own. I have reworked most of them to clean up the electronic install to this level of neatness

Because that is the way the original tigers and KT's were built, the panther was also that way I believe

the Germans built the Tiger 1 with the swing arms facing forward on one side and rearward on the other side, because of the torsion bar suspension

The Tiger I's suspension system consisted of interleaved road wheels mounted on axles attached to torsion bars, along with a drive sprocket and idler wheel over which traveled the track.

The Tiger had a total of 16 torsion bars, with 8 bars running transversely through the hull on each side of the tank, being anchored in a socket type housing on the opposite side. The torsion bars were 5 feet 4.75 inches long (1644.6mm) and either 55 or 58mm in diameter with splined ends. On the outer end of each torsion bar was a swing arm and on the end of each swing arm was the axle. To save space, the swing arms were angled forward on the driver's side and backward on the opposite side.
