Starting my next project, this 1/72 scale 280mm rail gun by Hobby Boss.
I'd need to Borrow Mrs Si's Grand Piano for the 35th one, the 72nd one looks enough of an undertaking, it's going to look nice in a glass case, if I don't cock it up.Just as well you went for the 1/72 model and not the likes of Schwerer Gustav in 1/35th. It needs its own shed.
cheers Rob, I'll share every step, starting with.... the two cam schemes suggested in the kit, either panzer grey or that rather attractive other scheme. Haven't done my homework yet so unsure if that's an Anzio Annie colour scheme. The grey could be made to look great using the salt technique and various shades of Panzer grey.Looking forward to this Sprocket 321
typical WW2 Germans, everything had to be massive and complex, wasn't the tracked one called Thor, were they both 1/72 scale. Wonder what they go for now?I enjoyed the Hasegawa version in the 1980s, as well as both of their Karl kits (one between twin railway transporters, the other on its tracks - so not actually deployed). Oddly enough, I never completed the Munitionspanzer which came with the deploying version.
There were a small number built, in two distinct versions; tha Hasegawa kit was a hybrid. If I were to build one again, I'd choose the later version by Hobby Boss, who offer both late and early variants. The Munitionspanzer is sold separately.typical WW2 Germans, everything had to be massive and complex, wasn't the tracked one called Thor, were they both 1/72 scale. Wonder what they go for now?
By the time you've got local defence, AA, and general support I wouldn't be surprised if it was a couple of battalions.I recal reading somewhere that one of them had its own battalion of troops attached.
