Michel Wingard I have the 1/700 with out shields but not all the products from the 3D's site don't appear to be listed here. I also purchased the 20 mm Orlikon cannons. The detail is great but they come as two pieces, cannon and pedestal. Hoping my magnifiers and shaky hands can assemble them. Ah ageing is soooo fun.

Frank Krause Pics 14-16 added.

The parts of the gun are together now. So I started with the frame for the platform. All foot rests had holes at the bottom, to prevent water from accumulating. Also the bars holding the foot rests were actually tubes. 0.3mm and 0.8mm drills solved the problem.

All pictures of Bofors guns with shortened right foot rest of the left gunner showed a firing pedal, which was missing. I added it using aluminium foil and evergreen profile. It looks pretty rough, but I like it more than without.

John Van Kooten That is amazing, Frank! Really cool detailling!!
21. July 2014 at 06:25:24
Frank Krause Thank you, Lady and Gents! Glad, you like, what you see.
@Christian: Compared to your models in a much smaller scale I am just an amateur. I admire your skills!
@John: That's the curse of original fotos. AFV Club provides really nice details, but... ;)
21. July 2014 at 16:21:14
John Van Kooten Hahaha! Yes, that's very true ;) always some room for improvement, right? :D

I think it's awesome that you are able to do that. I would probably make a big mess of it ;)
