Speaking of scales, does anyone have any idea why they didn't make this in 1/16?...



My guess is that they are tying into the GI joe scale and also those collectible military toys from 21st century, forces of valour etc. ....



Thanks for the reply. I didn't realize all those things even existed.

I'm awestruck. That's just insane. Awesome work. Will it end up in a diorama?

Btw, I hate to ask about something so small, but in the diorama that you set the gun next to for size comparison, where did you get the mortar from? I've been looking and never found one.

looks great Donald! May I offer one suggestion? The chains on the side of the gun mount are supposed to be hooked onto the upright cruciform arms. There's a hook or tab on the arms that connects with the ring at the end of those chains, onto the upright arms. I suppose it served as an backup measure to ensure the arms didn't fall. Hope this helps.


Here's an 8.8cm Flak 37 with the chain engaged (it'd be the same on the other side as well):
