Default Dimensions

Hi David,
Your not replying to my PM's ?..here they are then.

A. 53.33
B. 43.00
C. 91.80 OUTER BOX DIMENSION
C1. 89.60 INNER DIMENSON OF FLAT FRONT PLATE OVER BOX
D. 98.35 OUTER BOX DIMENSION
D1 97.10 INNER DIMENSON OF FLAT FRONT PLATE OVER BOX
E. 159.10
F. 150.79
G. 18.10
H. 132.08
J. 50.12
K. 23.15
L. 145.37
M. 23.00
P. 111.95

MANY DIMENSIONS VARY, POINTS OF REFERENCE DO NOT ALWAYS TERMINATE TO A SHARP POINT.
OFTEN SLIGHT CURVED POINT MAKES IT DIFFICULT TO MEASURE ACCURATELY.
LOTS MORE POINTS OF MEASUREMENT SHOULD BE TAKEN TO BE SURE OF ACCURATE DIMENSIONS.
CHECK THE PHOTO'S !!.

Regards..Ian "feind-hort-mit".

Ian, thank you for all those measurements. You're a hero. Should I acknowledge you by name on TIGER1.INFO?

War Good

Glad you like them David .
All for a good cause.
Well you can credit if you like, maybe "Ian - Channel Islands" that would be enough mate..

Have another two items..an original copy of the manual..D 1008/1, suppose you have that one..or a copy of it, cost me dearly a few years ago.
One last item, one of the original BW prints from the British Report on 131 (confirmed as such by B'ton's Archive chap), also bought some years ago..for a good price (for the seller that was), no doubt you have the entire set copied.

Cheers for now..Ian.
Do you give out your email at all ?, please PM me if you do.

Default Plug info sought..

Hello there David..all concerned..or indeed interested.
A new call for today.
I would like to make up a diorama for my Gyrocompass / Kurskreisel, it would be fitted to a fabricated metal mount as shown on this excellent web-site here.. http://tiger1.info/EN/GyrocompassMount.html .
The question tonight is..does anybody have info and pictures of the electrical plug which screws up and into the Gyrocompass / Kurskreisels base ?.
I could mock something up..but would like to get it right first time.
It has a lock / screw fitting so as it can't just drop out of the unit, but what does it look like ?..please can anybody help.
I also need a rear dome assembly for the back of the main unit..I know what that looks like..how to make one that's another thing altogether, still no luck on the large screw headed caps for the lamps around the body
Thanks in advance of a reply.....Ian "feind-hort-mit"

Crikey Nick... could you be a bit quicker next time mate..
Great thankyou, is this item in your collection ?, acn see some other items in the background.
Oh so many questions Nick, just one springs to mind at the moment, might you have any info that confirms this is the arrangement as used in a Tiger-1 ?, or is it the same setup in all Panzers..it was fitted in ?.
Regards and thanks again..Ian "feind-hort-mit"

The base is the same for all tanks and it hooks up to the KU3 transformer. I only have the gyro, and also needed a visual reference to hopefully find one for myself.

Carles, if you liked it. Here's my own gyro in the original Anschutz case. I also have the Umformer to power it up, but the motor for the gyro goes at extreme high speed, so I'm scared to try it, though I know this one is fully functional. I had another one, but sold it to a guy restoring a Tiger I, so that should be installed by now.

August 1941: Soviet writers examining equipment from German tanks. Person standing left from gyrocompass is Mikhail Sholokhov, later Nobel Prize winner (1965)
