Hey Dale, love your work on this.
The added detail and workmanship are inspirational.
It makes me very keen to get started on the Tiger.

Hi Dale, it is certainly looking good. I think you will find when it is fully open it sits on a block with a sprung latch/hook to hold it in the open position.
Hope that helps.
Regards, Dave.

I went trawling through my collection of YouTube videos for you. Check out S2E5: Driving & Shooting a Sherman Tank!
If you pause it at 5:37 it will hopefully help you.
Regards, Dave.

Stage one of the new front mud guards I made them 10mm longer as the supplied kit one looks to short and didn't measure up to scale
tomorrow I'll work on the side fillets and extra detail .Dale
