brought back from Berlin, strapped to a tank

WW2 souvenir I found, Berlin street sign, made it back to the UK, possibly after the 1945 Berlin parade, as the saying goes, if its not nailed down

Re: Jeffs 25 pounder

couple of small details added, the tangent-elevation engraving beside the cone, and the zero line marker board on the shield, also made a firing handle come safety for the blank firer. I would love to engrave the curved lines on the sighting cone, has anyone an idea how to achieve this, i have left ...

Re: Jeffs 25 pounder

Thanks for the kind words Stephen, yes I agree these gun kits are great fun to model and good value as well, I had some time today so made the elevation arm http://pic80.picturetrail.com/VOL814/8865292/22916331/414132340.jpg http://pic80.picturetrail.com/VOL814/8865292/22916331/414132341.jpg regards...

Re: Jeffs 25 pounder

sighting gear almost complete, just a few tweaks and cleaned before painting, parallel motion link is just resting on the brackets, as the sight operating arm needs some work, this is how far I got today, it might be a week or so before any updates, as I have a couple of projects to finish http://pi...

Re: Jeffs 25 pounder

A bit more completed on the sighting gear, made the sliding scale for the ranging cone, remade the quadrant scale for the elevation, the arc now runs true with the pointer, just the bracket for the iron sight to make then clean up the metalwork before painting http://pic80.picturetrail.com/VOL814/88...

Re: Jeffs 25 pounder

thanks for all the info Marcus, I am sure we could all go raving mad trying to achieve perfection, I try and make the details look acceptable and in scale rather than having every nut bolt and rivet correct, not sure about the rubber bellows, what diameter are they, the ones I made scale up to 45mm ...

Re: Jeffs 25 pounder

made the sighting scope and storage container, this looks closer to scale, retaining clips to be added to the container, also made and fitted the telescope holder to the sighting gear. http://pic80.picturetrail.com/VOL814/8865292/22916331/414126618.jpg http://pic80.picturetrail.com/VOL814/8865292/22...

Re: Jeffs 25 pounder

the kit comes with a solid alloy telescope case that fits to brackets inside the shield, just for fun I thought I would bore this out and see what size the sighting telescope would be, as the photos show it is a tad small, I use the 1/6th figure to show scale, the last picture shows the diameter the...

Re: Jeffs 25 pounder

made a start on the sighting gear, most of the main elements are made, this is what I achieved in 2 days http://pic80.picturetrail.com/VOL814/8865292/22916331/414123436.jpg http://pic80.picturetrail.com/VOL814/8865292/22916331/414123438.jpg http://pic80.picturetrail.com/VOL814/8865292/22916331/41412...

Re: Jeffs 25 pounder

Thanks Robert, but the real early innovators are Marcus, Ian Rodney and Dave Dibb, I started building my 25 pounder 4 or 5 years after the release and have avoided some of the early pitfalls,thanks to them, and have to admit I have used some of their great ideas, I have also put my own interpretatio...

Re: Jeffs 25 pounder

finally got the base coat on and put the major elements together, this was to check that all the mods were ok and not causing issues and binding, everything OK, still quite a bit to do, have not started the firing platform or the sighting gear. A quick review of the kit, although I have changed and ...
