Well more good work and a nice start to the new year .
I'm sure that all the hard work you are doing will come together to create a super kit in the end.
So nice to look in on your work bench .

Why would the clowns not let people into the tent? What's the point of the show if they don't? .

You are doing quite a scratch build work in here.
A pity that all that beautiful work will be lost inside the vehicle.

Hello gentlemen,

thank you very much for your replies! I'm glad you guys are still with me in this neverending story (build). Let me know when it becomes too annoying


Here's something I wouldn't exactly call an updated, it's much more a little note with a few pics. Let's start with the latter...



This "stopper" connects the barrel with the ball mount via an "U"-shaped (consider the "U" upsidedown). The strips at the the end of the barrel are there for making it easier to align the barrel in the ball mount once it will be glued in there. Practically, the same system was used in reality, too. But I don't consider my depicition to be close to the real deal.
The area marked red underneath the "stopper" in the upper right picture is supposed to show that there was also such a thing. As I couldn't make out how it was attached to the ball mount (or was it?), eventually I decided to leave it out.
The areas marked red at the "stopper" in lower right picture are supposed to show that there will be weld beads missingm, yet.


Between these two sheet strips the "U"-shaped plate will be, once the mount is put in place.


Further picture studying made it clear that the shape of breech block as it's designed by DML is not fully accurate. So I need to shape it the way I drew it here in the pic.
The purpose of that circular piece is mysterious to me - as are many of the gun parts If anybody has more info on that piece or even pictures / drawings of this side of the gun, I'd be more than happy to see them.


Here we go. It's not hard to see that it's in its very beginning of reworking and is far from being done...


... and that's where it will remain for some time, presumably. Because it seems like I got the flu again, like last year. In this state, it's hard to do any modelling and as I have to leave for Augsburg Thursday again, there won't be a new update 'till the end of February or so. Sorry for this!


One more thing I'm asking you for: If you realize I'm writing a lot of crap, please let me know! Especially in the area of the gun, there's only little I know about. Teach me, guys


Greetings and all the best,
Johannes.
