17cm Kanone "Matterhorn"
Detail and Conversion sets
This is surely an interesting project. What are your plans for it? In firing or in towing position? May I follow, since I've got the same ahead of me?
Shure you may follow. Maybe it will give me the necessary motivation to finish this project. I allready started it about 1 1/2 years ago. There were quiet some difficulties and I also moved to another town inbetween. At the Moment I'm preparing some pictures and try to figure out this site...
Thanks, Ingmar! You surely did some research, but if you need some more detail photos, have a look here (pics 119 - 132): Wehrtechnische Studiensammlung Koblenz 2012 | Album by Frank Krause
If you need motivation, I'll be in too! That's an interesting subject, I'd like to see more like Frank!
Is there any way, to add more text to the pictures? I put so much time in finding out some errors and changing the suspension to correctly depict the gun in firing mode, that I'd realy like to write it down. Like in a full build report or something like that...
As you clearly can see, it is shown in firing mode. I'm yet a bit undecided on the colour, but I'm leaning towards Panzergrau. And at first it will yust be put on a wooden base with a figure and maybe some shells for size comparison. I'd realy like to make a big diorama out of it, but that will have to wait since a firing mission would need so much personel and tools and... but as I'm writing this, there might be an interesting idea... I'll have to seach a picture...
