Just read the whole thread. This is a remarkable rebuild and totally puts my complete Tamiya T1 teardown and rebuild in a month project to shame. I went the lazy route and just kept everything basically stock as I wanted it up and running for the start of the battling season but I kind of want to now start with a fresh Tamiya T1 and just spend the time trying to do a lot of the stuff I have learned from reading about your build

Burger_Patrol1, I am still here, even though you are w-a-a-y beyond using the "ferrule." :haha: Like Panzermechaniker, I am amazed.

Cheers to those who are just following Mr. Burgers work now. I remember when I searched and found this thread a while back, such inspirational work for me. I borrowed many ideas and tried new things like weld beads/seams.

Keep at it Mr. Burger :thumbup:

Hey Panzermechaniker, :wave: No shame in a tear down & rebuild...no mater how long it took you, it's still a lot of work. Only reason mine is taking so long is Life...Keep getting pulled away from my favorite hobby for one reason or another. Thanks for the kind words and I hope some of my info will help you on your next adventure :thumbup:

Hey Herr DR. Professor, Hope all has been well with you! Ha, yes I remember the "ferrule" :D Thank you sir for the kind words and I will try and get some more content posted from the build. I will shoot for 2024 being the end date for this T1 Face Lift. :thumbup:

Thanks MrChef, I am so glad some of the technics that i have learned from other peeps and passed on have helped other tankers with ideas for various builds.
Like they always say, your never too old to learn & i am still picking up new ideas all the time. Have a good one :thumbup:
