Took advantage of the very hot weather here in Sydney last weekend as an excuse to stay indoors,not venture into the sun and work on a number of wargaming projects, this being one of them, a Scratch Built 15cm sIG33.
It costs 7 support points, AP value of 8, HE value of 13 and it also decreases Cover level by 1 Level, a useful gun to deal with armour or enemy troops bunching up together.😏
|The gun in action.|
|The scratch build starts with cutting off a piece of an old paint brush handle seen in red and threading a plastic tubing around it this is the barrel of the gun, I also used some scrap MDF for the carriage frame as can by seen top left.|
|The wheels are carved from left over Perry miniature bases and I used lots of plastic odds and ends to build the rest of the gun.|
|Its not a reproduction but I am happy it will pass as a |
15cm siG 33.
|Gun primed with black undercoat.|
|Its mounted on a thin sheet of metal contoured around the gun.|
|I used Vallejo model colour Middlestone for the base of the gun and highlighted with further coats by adding VMC Iquai sand.|
|The spade is a left over from another kit.|
|The gun actually needs one Junior Leader and a crew of five, so I will make up the extra crew needed from another crew served gun in my Late war support.|
