[Kartonowy Arsenał] SdKfz 7 (8~9/99) 1:25 & [Military Model] Flak 36/37 (1-2/96) 1:25

  • Hello Seo,


    you are getting along fine, the crucial element, the gun-barrel is drawing nearer and nearer. As far as I recall the thing you just finished is the fuse-setter.


    Kind regards

    Thank you very much for your kind encouragement and information.

    I didn't know what the fuse setter was until you mentioned. I googled it with your comment. Thank you.


    I am also thinking of the gun-barrel. When I built 7/2, I realized that it was very difficult to roll a long barrel. It was my first to roll a barrel more than 5 cm long and less than 5mm wide.


    Happily the kit has two more extra sets of barrel parts to cover marking options. I might sacrifice one or two.

    Since you mentioned it, why don't I just try without delay?


  • Hello Seo,


    in my eyes this went very well already !


    Kind regards Zaphod

    Thank you very much for your kind encouragement.
    I am also glad that I could finish it without too much troubles.

    I had to rework the middle section. I was very lucky not to damage the front section attached to the middle section.

  • There is huge space between the barrel and loader.



    I am not sure this is right but this is what I could do best.


      


    For fun, the barrel was put into the assembly (No glue yet)

    Still long way to finish the model.


     

  • The work for the barrel is continued.


       


                                                                    


    The barrel is assembled.

  • Hello Seo,

    its amazing, how this canon grows! Your collection of halftrucks is great too. Every time you update this report, I am so fascinated by your clean build and your models which looks like an original military vehicle from germany. Very nice!

    I am happy to see when you continue! Thanks a lot!

    Best regards

    Thank you so much for your kind encouragement.

    I tried coloring models before but it ended up mess. I realize that I am not good at coloring or brushing or painting models. But I like to cut and to paste parts. So I stick to the original print of models.


    Since you mentioned about the halftracks, I am thinking why I don't finish the last 7/1 halftrack from Halinki after 7/2 and 7. It would be boring. But if I don't try now, I would not be back for 7/1 later. I haven't decided yet. We would see.

    Robert,


    Thank you so much for your kind encouragement.

    The Flak is taking much longer time that I expected. It is getting difficult to handle due to so many small delicate parts on the surface. I was losing my focus too. But thank you so much for your attention. I will keep on my work.

  • Hello Seo,


    once more: great work! The axels and feathering look as greasy as they should and the steering obviously works fine.


    Kind regards

  • Das wird eine Superlaffette Detailgtreu und super sauber gebaut.

    Thank you so much for your kind encouragement.

    The finish line is close. I will try not to lose my focus on the construction.

    I don't think I would build the flak again (except Halinkski's 38mm much later)

  • Now adding parts on the rear wheels.


     


     


    By the way, 118 & 118a are supposed to be 2 pairs for the left and the right fender.

    I could find only a pair. I don't think I lost one.





  • Dear Seo,

    its phantastic!!

    Mit besten Grüßen aus Hagen

  • Hi Seo,


    congratulations to this outstanding buildt model!


    It is a big pleasure to see your pictures!

    Especially I know the original gun very well, because one gun is shown at the historical military museum here in Vienna.

    Sadly without halftrack engine and the wheels and paintet in grey.


    Three cheers to the bay!
