Re: fear frightening Flak 36 88mm Gun

Wrong gun type for a U-Boat. While the Type VII's used 88's they were a different gun and used different ammunition.


That said, it would be amazing to see the fore gun section of the U-boat.

Beautiful piece, as Andy said, how about some details. Are you using 3D printing?

It looks great! I'll probably end up doing one of these some day. Would love to know what it is made of. Looks like resin to me. Very smooth job for 3D printing.

These last posted pictures at first was of the real gun then as I scrolled down it then looked like a model. When finished and photographed in the right setting it could pass as the real gun the attention to details is amazing

Re: fear frightening Flak 36 88mm Gun

Every time you post your work I am amazed at your eye for weathering but if I may suggest you may want to study steel items that are driven into the ground with a hammer and removed often as the stakes would have been. Either way I look forward to your finished model.

Servus Men

I'm currently thinking. if I did not construct me a second Behelfslafette. I'm not quite sure why they made it. but I think to know.
They constructed a Behelfslafette that was primitive and simple and inexpensive, and could be mobilized by the special trailer 202.
Who can help me there and has information in my books I'm not smart

Re: fear frightening Flak 36 88mm Gun

Hi Men

Today I want to again show a few pictures. what you see here is half a year's work. more than 100 pods u. bullet Lacquered, about 50 transport crates built and painted, it now lacks only 10 single patron Tin containers.
then the ammunition part is done and it goes to the next flak36

Re: fear frightening Flak 36 88mm Gun

Very impressive and oh so tedious to make so many multiples of the same item.
Looking forward to the unbelieveable dio you'll be doing when its all done.

I believe the exprsssion is: 'You can never have enough ammo'. Sure looks like you are challenging that statement!

They look great!

Re: fear frightening Flak 36 88mm Gun

Manfred,

The stacks of 88 ammo look great. You've clearly referenced the first and second reference photos well! The haphazard stack you've created in 1:6th looks amazing!

Ammo is always a challenge for gun scenes (artillery, flak, anti-tank, etc.) in 1:6th and you certainly won't have that problem here.

I like the Luftwaffe figure in the side cap with the white drill uniform. He looks good!

Well done all around!

Fred

Awesome. One of the best modeling work I've ever seen in my life. They will be there any figures for this? If so, Heer or maybe Luftwaffe?

Amazing build and the stack of ammo is fantastic! Great job on the wicker three round crates, very ingenious solution to having many for set ups without each being a compkete piece. Everything looks great! Thanks for sharing!

I noticed today that my ammo for my FLAK much is too small. I just
31 Rattan ammunition baskets
25 single Patron vessel as 60 Patron and 40 faded sleeves.
I need more. I started to build even wooden ammunition boxes. there are probably times 30 wooden boxes and 20 single patron containers are: stupid D: D

Re: fear frightening Flak 36 88mm Gun

Great looking gun and ammo rounds. I wonder what the wooden box is for over the damper cylinder on top of gun? To keep it dry??? Very nice build.
Best regards,

Re: fear frightening Flak 36 88mm Gun

As Manfred stated, the box over the recuperating cylinder was intended to protect it from shrapnel.
There doesn't appear to have been a formalised cover for the cylinder but it's not uncommon to see these improvised wooden protectors.

Re: fear frightening Flak 36 88mm Gun

Hello men here manufacturing wooden ammunition boxes for my Flak 36th
Due to the relatively simple production of plywood with nails. I would classify them by 1944/45. Typical of the manufacturing simplicity and concentration on the essential function of the items during the war. Earlier cases were mostly as elaborate as good furniture worked

Re: fear frightening Flak 36 88mm Gun

I agree excellent additions to the gun. Will make a super dio of the gun, crew, and ammo and cases. In the right photo work layout and weathering it can make for almost real deal. Well done.... congrats
P.S. I'm amazed at the high quality figures, clothing, weapons, accessories, vehicles, etc. that have advanced from the old Gi Joe days. And last but not least the work and attention to details that has gone into the hobby these days

These containers look wonderful. How did you create those brass plates for the locking mechanism, did you have those parts photo-etched?

Very impressive, when you have the gun with all the munitions in a diorama it will be spectacular

Re: fear frightening Flak 36 88mm Gun

Amazing work! May I use these pics for the FOA website to promote the 6SI containers?

Did you use the 6SI containers as is, and were the grooves made on the lathe adequate? This was done by my employees who are fairly new to a lathe

Also, would you be willing to share the printed material? Many people would love to get their hand on this incredible work. I'll give you some "store credit" we could agree on?

Cheers,
Loic

Re: fear frightening Flak 36 88mm Gun

Hi men
it is already something that I have written something to my construction report.
but in things flak has opened up something new for me, because it has always bothered me that my FLAK is a pure model and I would like to have RC fit, I decided to sell the Old Flak.
The next step would be to raise a few bucks, and if the opportunity arises, buy an Armortek Flak 37.
now came the opportunity to buy a kit, and I did it now it all starts again and start building, I am more than enough ammo: lol lol:
First of all, I decided to do the shots, because these are the most intense at the moment, Armorterk has no detailing planned which I personally are very pity, as you can see there is still much to do.



























































small progress really difficult

Amazing simply stunning work on the Flak 36 but all those ammunition crates and tubes is amazing in all their detail. Was on the fence about them but now definitely will be purchasing some.

This is crazy. I don't know how I missed this build going on. Absolutely stunning. The pics of the ammo crate with the Luft guy wearing HBT training uni is fantastic on its own, let alone all the variations of crates & cannisters and the super fine detailed text on the munitions. I can't even get into the 88 yet. Just amazing.
