28cm Haubitze L/12 Coastal Artillery

Post by EPOCH3 » 09 Mar 2018 23:03

Hi - please find my latest project: 28cm Haubitze L/12 auf Holzbettung.

There are several photos I have seen on-line showing the side assemblies
of this piece in a slightly configuration but I did this one based on an original
1939 factory drawing.

The railings are a bit over scale and the walkways/decking
is supposed to be see through. For the prototype I just printed
it as shown. I didn't think they would print properly but I am going
to redo the model and try. I might print the carriage without the decking
and then try and make that separately (very thin). If that doesn't work.
I'll get some photoetched aftermarket sheets and do it that way.

I included a screen capture to show what the 3D model looks like and
what iam trying to build.

Kind Regards

a few more pictures - and for anyone interested in building stats:

A) The large carriage part:
1) Basic model geometry was 80.78 ml
2) 119.78 ml with supports
3) Total cost (w supports) was about $17.80 in resin
4) Build time 15hrs, 24minutes
(note, the build time is primarily a function of the number of layers
and therefore goes up as the part is placed in a more vertical position)

I really enjoy these posts. I am guessing this model is 1/35 scale.

My personal opinion is that the larger scale model(s) (think it was a 150 s.F.H.) was the most enjoyable model to watch you create.

Thanks much Jeff - I appreciate the feedback. Yes, it's 1/35th scale.

I just started the protze for the 15cm sFH (both in 1/35th and 1/15th scales).
I'll post some progress pictures when I have something to show.

I am still learning how best to bring my projects to fruition - new technologies
and materials have their challenges. I have many projects that are just too big
or too hard to make as a simple model or they need a huge amount of material
to make etc - there are always tradeoffs to fight with.

By the way - I am always open to suggestion as to what to make next - I am mainly
an artillery and railway guy but I am toying with doing several support
vehicles and even an aircraft model or two (BV-138 flying boat with a crane for setting
into water) in 1/35th scale. Let me know if you have any ideas/suggestions for projects.
I am always up to something unique and a challenge and just might give it a try :)

....Anything fun.

Kind regards
Greg

Hi - here are a few pictures of the base

B) Base platform:
1) Basic model geometry was 54.57 ml
2) 105.23 ml with supports
3) Total cost (w supports) was about $15.6 in resin
4) Build time 6hrs, 10 minutes

Parts shown have been only removed from supports (no sanding or cleaned up yet)

Some models I would like to see : these are just the more common types of German heavy artillery.

1:35 scale

s 10 cm K18
15 cm K18
15 cm K39
17 cm K18
21 cm Mrs 18
21 cm K. 39/40/41

12.8 cm K44 - I just like the look of the gun.

It would be nice to if the models could be shown in both firing mode and travel mode

Hi - I modeled several of these pieces many years ago but then Trumpeter
came out with several as kits so I put them aside. I did recently restart the
15 cm K39 w transport wagons project so I will be making that sometime
in the near future.

The 12,8 cm K44 would look awesome in 1/15th scale but might be expensive
to make so we'll see :)

Thanks for the information, I am really uniformed about the present model market. I did come across a link https://www.scalemates.com/search.php?q=%22artillery%22 that had what seem exstensive information on artillery kits available today.
