Lorraine(f) 105mm self propelled howitzer

Recently I took some time off to build a German 105MM self-propelled howitzer using a captured French L37 tractor chassis, which has a full internal structure. My next project is the Marder I tank destroyer, which makes full use of the L37 chassis modeling drawings. Finally, I took a photo of all the 105MM self-propelled guns in my hand. So far, the number of this artillery group has reached 3, so I have to equip the artillery observation vehicle. Artillery observation vehicles will be released in a few days

Re: Lorraine(f) 105mm self propelled howitzer

My god! Those are glorious! How did you fabricate the guns? Is everything fully scratchbuilt, or did you use some kits as the base.


Just stunning work in either case.

I used SOLIDWORKS to model the vehicle shell, MAYA to model the details of the parts, CAD to edit the car body plate model, acrylic plate cutting, and then spliced into the car body. Other parts are made using 3D printing technology

Re: Lorraine(f) 105mm self propelled howitzer

azazel, if I may ask, how do you: use SOLIDWORKS to model the vehicle shell? I went to the site and had no luck in finding a way to get a vehicle shell. Do you draw up plans and have someone make the vehicle shell? Or have someone make the plans and you do a 3D print of the vehicle shell?

I have a friend who is good at using SOLIDWORKS, and I hired him to help me complete the modeling of the vehicle shell through outsourcing. Sometimes he is also responsible for the modeling of wheels and tracks. Then I cut the vehicle shell plates using acrylic and put them together. Then I used MAYA to model the parts needed for the internal construction, all of which required full communication and accurate coordination. The way you try to download 3D models of cars from websites, this is not going to work. Those 3D models had various problems and were almost impossible to modify, plus the entire vehicle was not practical to print, PLA printing was too rough and not suitable for complex shapes. The cost of photosensitive materials is very high, and the material strength is very poor, can not bear the weight, for a long time will be deformed or broken, so the main material or choose acrylic, ABS plastic or metal

Re: Lorraine(f) 105mm self propelled howitzer

Thank you for the reply Azazel. It looks like the process is way beyond my capabilities. And way more involving than I realize. Your builds are incredible and hope to see more of them.
