Default Heavy Torn.E.b resurrection

A few weeks ago I got from my friend totally wrecked remains of heavy, zinc-alloy, Torn.E.b. Just empty frame, partially destroyed (too active bastler).
Because I have got a lot of suitable period "trash", I decided to resurrect the poor remains and bring the carcass of Torn to the new life
Somee pictures of restoration process:

Enjoy it!





(Torn.E.b, Feb 1. 1944, by the stamp on tuning C.)

Thank You!
Another chalenge for me; coil sets reconstruction. Only Bereichs 1, 6 and 8 are completely restored now, the other are waiting for the job, step by step. Because all the turret blocks were completely devastet by wild bastler, now I have to restore all the interior of turret sections. It means to find substitute coil cores, include adequate mechanical fixations, to make wholly new winding of the coils, and, last not least, tune it up... uffff!

Great Job, congratulations!

Torns are cult objects, recently I was in contact with a collector who owns 20 of them, I asked why so many? He told me that there are 26 small variants due to different manufacturers, periods of the war etc. and He wants them all...

regards and 73
