Thanks for the offer, I have emailed the Bovington Tank Museum to see if they hold any information on the storage of the Gurt sacks.

I have finished the floor in the crew compartment and the battery box and yes I know the tread plate is the wrong pattern but I couldn't find any of the right patterned stuff.

Thanks for looking Robert, there is a company in Poland that has produced some and I am wondering if it is the same company that also produces the diamond pattern for the mud guards. I will have to, in the near future, make contact and depending on the costs, get some of each. It would be nice to get the correct pattern for the floor plates but they can be changed at any time. Another point, which relates to the aluminium mud guards, is that according to the Panzer Tracts book, the floor plates were originally aluminium as well.

For some unknown reason, I can never associate that component as a slip ring, in my world, that would be a rotary connection. The actual electrical connections will utilise a readily available rotary unit from fleabay, housed in a machined steel housing, that will take any mechanical load.

Evening All,

I have been concentrating on the petrol tank cover, on the original this was an armoured cover welded to the hull, access to the fuel tank would have been from under the tank via a removable plate in the floor. To remove the cover in mine, you would have to lift the top of the hull but I have added inspection, maintenance covers for the fuel sender and the fuel pump. I have also made the cover in two parts so that I can gain access to the engine electrics without having to remove the whole cover.
