Just wondering. Are those plans Top Secret (Spitzengeheimnis)?
What is the way to to get more information on those plans so we can build those wonderful models? I personally I would like to build them for my HO ( 1:87) trains models
Thanks and best regards

Your work is awesome, I'd like to see more of it.
Is there a web site where i can find more pictures of your models? I'm specially interested in the Siegfried railgun.

Hello Panzer67!

I am really awed by the beautiful set of Bruno guns you have built from scratch. Amazing!

I am used to scratch building models, but I only started my interest in railroad guns recently. Now I would very much like to build a model of the German Krupp K12, 21 cm gun, and it's ancestor, the Paris-gun 21 cm from WW 1. Is there any source of reasonably accurate drawings of these guns, and how could I get these?

Cheerio,
Martinus

Gordon: to do the schwere bruno you will need to buy a leopold from dragon ( its better for the deep surgery than trumpeteer because is very thin all the pieces )
and scratch all the main box and turning lathe for main gun, xcellent plans and a lot of pics from books

the polish had very good kits of armoured trains ( i have a Ti3 locomotive from jadar ) in 1/35 and is very good resin. they have all the railcars to do the armoured polish trains

I allways make the scratch after 22:00 hrs when my wife is sleeping. and go to the bed betwen 24:00 to 1:00 hrs

as most of the scratch is at night i do it in a room where the noise of the dremel can be minimized

is necessary to have a lot of patience to dont decline in the beginning because the temptations are high because you almost dont see the advance when youare cutting pieces and dont assembling.

this week will finish my Siegfried for a local countest, and will upload pics

thank you for all yours comments friends and ... enjoy scratching its fun.

Hi panzer67
I'm very impressed with your scratch building abillities and how do you find the time to do all of these large vehicles. I like scratch building but I do not have the time to do what I want to do. Always enjoy your in progress photos.
Cheers
Ralph

thank you for yours comments

watch this another project in progress...







and this week i will finish this another...
380 mm Siegfried German railgun






the boogies are based in dragon railcars... 2 leopolds to do a siegfried and a extreme surgery to the model to convert the boogies and all scratch to do the main box and turning lathe the main gun ( actualy in process too )

for the oldest railguns ( kurze and theodore bruno ) is needed a railtransport of trumpeteer to destroy and convert into the boogies

for lange and schwere bruno the leopold is good ( i use the dragon leopold its better considering the resistance needed to work in scratch because the trumpeteer is so thin ) just need a surgery to reduce the ammount of axes and make the right distance betwen the axes

i have plans for almost all the german railguns since 150 mm to 800 mm
some were hard to find and had the krupp legends on right base of the drawing.

i have the target to finish my collection in 2 more years, then will change to a schneellboot

next week i will upload the final pics of the siegfried railgun
