R.J. - Awesome! I'm really looking forward to seeing it take shape (and all the other projects in this campaign, too, of course )

Jerry - after a good look at the parts and the 1:1 I've decided it will be easier to completely scratch-build the entire thing excluding the wheels . So - yes the barrels will be scratch-built .

Hi R.J.,

That's a very cool and offbeat project. Are you going to scratch the rocket tubes or borrow them from another kit?

Having reshuffled some bits around on the work-bench, I thought I'd give this Campaign some attention (after some pushing by another member (thanks turtle65 , whom I have also stolen the idea of watermarking for the Campaign)).
I had sort of planned to use this project for another Campaign but on reflection it's more suited here.

A.H.C.T. Aleppo Hell Cannon Transporter
The 1:1,








and the starting kit/diecast model. Norscot 1:50th scale Caterpillar 924G Wheeled Loader:




finally where I'm at so far:



The Loader-Transporter in the 1:1 pictures is a Chinese manufactured XCMG XL30H. After noting the differences between the Cat 924 and the XL30H probably the only usable parts will be the tyres and rims (with modifications) . I guess I'd better make a proper start as I'm a rather slow modeller .

Someday I'll figure out something to build for this campaign. Have a few others I have to slog through first.

Hi fellas.

Is anybody else having issues with photobucket today? I was going to post my start pictures but I can't get photobucket to work. I'll save them for when it start to work I guess.

Okay then. The start date has passed and I'm about to put my practice run to actual build now.
Just waiting for the glue to dry on the new wheel sections then off to the lathe tomorrow .
I'll be doing a build blog thingy here

Howdy Y'all
This old kit will be my entry. I'll also try to make a couple of figures and complete a vignette. I'll have to buy some extra shells and boxes, hate to spend good money on this crude kit, oh well...


Here is Dragon's DAK Artillery crew figures.


Everyone looks like they're going to have some nice builds.
Take care,
Don "Lakota"

Ken,
The kit figures look ok to me. I would have liked all to have field jackets instead of the two who have long coats. I may use them anyway. The kit doesn't supply extra ammo or empty shell.

Would anti-aircraft guns be allowed as they are a type of artillery? I fancied building an Sdkfz 140 Gepard I've got (which mounts a Flak 38) rather than a conventional towed piece. I thought I'd check before I make a start, I'm just trying o get my vehicle stash down a bit.

Hello all.
Well, Like Andrew (andyman) I will be trying my hand at the 105mm. This will be my first attempt at an artillery piece by itself, so should be interesting to say the least!
Cheers.

,
Luciano, Cristian & Jesper - cheers for the input .
At this stage I'm holding off and going to start the originally intended piece once the the start date passes.
That said the 9" mortar is still teasing me, so could very well end up on the bench as a "side-line" build .
