Re: New Member

Welcome Brian, The 25pdr is an excellent kit to start with! Numerous builds have been presented on this forum to draw inspiration from! The actual piece is well documented with lots of actual examples to measure up and replicate in scale. Drawing from my own experience even through the build you wil...

Re: sdkfz 7 build log.

That is some excellent soldering work!! Did you use a jig or template to position the parts during soldering?
Keep up the good work!!

Re: Starting my 25 Pdr... Mirbat Gun.

Hi Robert, Christmas is always the time I get most of the building done! Appropriate or not....... If you take a look at my Flickr site, I have photographed a dial sight in detail: https://www.flickr.com/photos/82214824@N03/albums/72157639887062875 BTW, I have one on my desk so if you need details o...

Re: Starting my 25 Pdr... Mirbat Gun.

Excellent post Robert! Just having a machine shop like yours............... I have rebuild and modified (upgraded?) most of the parts 3 times over, as there is always someone who has a great idea that just needs to be implemented on my gun too. I just cannot resist it....... :roll: And luckily my wo...

Re: Starting my 25 Pdr... Mirbat Gun.

Thanks Robert! That website of Steencannons is amazing! My first large scale (non plastic) model was a naval 24pdr made by Rhodes limited in about 1/10 scale, say 15 years ago...... Wooden carriage and a glorious brass barrel! Bought it after a visit to the USS Constitution when I was working in the...

Re: Starting my 25 Pdr... Mirbat Gun.

Would love to have one of those 1/1 civil war cannons! Do those also come in a smaller scale (1/6 or 1/10) and kit form?
1000 rivets should be enough! I find them everywhere in my house, so some spares are definitely needed!

Re: Starting my 25 Pdr... Mirbat Gun.

Seeing you starting your build makes me want to build another one........ Have a second 25pdr waiting to be converted into a 17/25 pdr......
I really love this 'little' kit, watching with interest!!!!!

Re: Marcus's 25 pounder

Thanks Robert! Well I have to say that not all parts came together in one try..... And though I work with different soldering media (different melting temps.) sometimes your hard work ends up in a unrecognizable clump of brass and solder just because I wanted to correct something small and did put t...
