12 cm granatwerfer 42,

Postby vw8243 » Fri Nov 17, 2017 12:21 am

Hi All

Been plugging away wit this the last few nights a load a sh)%$£ but getting there , this is a zvezda offering from about 1870 >:oZ ,
this morter was captured by the germans ,and coppied and very hard to distinguish from each other, the trailer wheels are the only things that are really noticeable.
Ive changed a few bits on the trailer to make it a bit more german,
will be adding this to a steyr 1500a for a small Ardennes dio.
At 1.36 you can see this combo passing in this vid .https://youtu.be/wWOOnRIpGqg.

Unusual but excellent subject. :o)b Almost no difference between that WW2 mortar and any modern one.

Great bit of footage too, never saw it before only stills from it. Have a look at 2.25, a German para. on the tank is
carrying a MK1 Sten Gun. :!:

Hi All

Was keeping away from this because a the etch, but once i started, it was ok primed and painted the etch in khaki ,left to dry a few nights,then inserted the plastic for windows ,sealed with super glue only frosted one corner so not bad :oj
painted the truck itself and got most a the painting work done before glueing on the windows.
so just to get on with the weathering now.ImageImageImageImageImageImage
