Better start looking for some aftermarket parts that i can't make out of brass ,copper or styrene.. Just had to buy as it was a good price.

Glad we are still in or it would be a visit to the PO for a pickup/customs charge.

Jagdpanther start. 1st problem is don't think anyone makes the metal upgrade for the elevation and traverse plastic parts now . Will see if i can make them , the traverse has bearings but not on the elevation . Will try and add bearings to elevation.

Thanks for the info , had a look . The Ludwigs one is plastic but gives an alternative build option to make one out of metal. The Daryl Turner site has none , may be he only makes a batch when he has enough orders.
