Hello Simon,

I've been afaraid when I looked at the date of your post :shock: :oops:
Time is running that fast :shock:

Due to "fully relaxed" last month I could do just some minor progress on my 88....

At least I pressed on my very personal "stamps" and made some mods on the breech-block :D :lol:

Just hope to have the Flak ready for October :roll: :wink:


cheers for now and hope to see someone in Dortmund :) ,

Uwe

Hi all ,

the October events in the neck I've "stolen" some time in my workshop and made some progress on the "Zünderstellmaschine" :)

I've made the fixings more scale and some other bits and pieces have been adjusted :wink:

The central E-Box is also ready now and will "hide" my centre fixing-system.
Tomorrow I'll have the "paint-day" so the house will be happy again about the smell :lol: :lol:

Really hope to get quick along with the electrics so to have the remaining time for the boogies :shock:

Hi Paul :D ,

brilliant with the chain pics, haven't found that detail so long 8) :wink:


cheers for now from Cologne,

Uwe

Hi Uwe,
