Tiger 1 with HL recoil

My latest project is to retrofit an HL recoil into my Tiger 1 and this is what I have so far. To me this is what I like is to build and figuring out how to do it. I still have the pivots and gun elevation unit to install. The recoil unit pictured is set up for my Panzer lV. I will post more pictires soon.

Can you please post a video of the recoil in action? I wanted to see how the action works..

I've managed to convert my airsoft mechanism into a recoil unit but I still find the speed to be a bit slow or un-realistic.

Is that not the HL Stug recoil unit that you are using ? I am not sure, but will you not have to use the Stug elevation unit some how /

He is using the new HL, Stug, jagpanzer, KV-1 recoil unit! The unit has a fin on the tail so you can use the old elevation or the new!

Also John is doing the reverse mod, first done by YHR on RCU, and this will allow the recoil to look more realistic!

Sorry I don't have a video on the recoil. I don't have a camera for videos. I am doing the HL recoil and the RX18 mods thats on the rccommand site and go to the how to guides.
I will be using the Stug. elevation unit for the Tiger and it will be mounted on the loaders hatch location and I will post some pitures as soon as I can. I finally got the rest of the parts so I can finish the Tiger retrofit,
Sorry about taking too long on the Tiger recoil and elevation units retro. I am rebuilding my Tiger with IR and the rest of my tanks. PM or e-mail me if you have questions or ideas. With back problems it gets hard to keep going.

Sorry for the delay. I have built the elevation for the Tiger. I used the Stug. unit and made a new runner for the unit. Let me know what you think ot it. I'm thinking about mounting the sensor tower in the loaders hatch.
