That's really nice work. I'm still hoping for some 222 gun mount upgrade parts from someone someday for the rest of us not quite so talented.
Thanks for showing us.

Hi Bodo

Excellent work as always! This is going to be one perfect looking 222 when you get done with it.

Just amazing!

best regards

Hi Steve,

no the main gun and the Mg are getting an electric recoil system, based on an idea from my friend Martin Diessel.

Hi Bodo

Totally mind boggling detail! Excellent work as always. It will be difficult to tell your 1:6 scale 222 from a real one.

Thanks for posting your work.

Hello,

the canon is now nearly finished, only some components must be colored and installed.
