1/144 Sturmmörser 28 cm 38 (D) 26 / 52

Normally I do not build or collect something what do not saw any action during WWII. But no rule without exceptions. The Sturmmörser is such an exception. Somehow I liked it and the price for the unassembled kit was okay.
So here my Sturmmörser 28 cm 38D.

1/144 Tornado Sprengboot 25/52


The Tornado Sprengboot was one of the very desperite Trials to Change everything -  when it was already too late.
As far as I could find out, there was at least one prototype which was used for Trails. When the Russians came closer, the Germans Blow up everything.

The design is very simple, the swimmer are from the Ju 52, the engine is from the V1.

More About the Concept you can find : Wikipedia

1/144 12,8 cm Twin Flak on culemeyer 24/52

Today I present a project which I started two years ago. When CGD announced the 12,8 cm Twin Flak I remembered that in Aberdeen was a Twin Flak on a Culemeyer Transporter. But not that the Culemeyer transported the Flak, no, is was welded on the platform of the Culemeyer. The Culemeyer in the six Wheel Version I just had designed, so an easy conversion. Somehow it took me over two years to finalise everything. So today I present you the finished model with a Little delay.
The painting is different from what you can find on the Internet, but I doubt the painting you can see in Aberdeen. The Culemeyer Trailers never belonged to the Wehrmacht, so they were Maybe in a dark Grey but not painted in Wehrmacht Schema.
Most of the 12.8 Flak had the old grey Coating, so I went with this combination.

Bad luck, I found no Information who used this combination, was it a prototype, a field conversion or where was it found.

1/144 Scammell Pioneer 23/52

Some years ago I bought some models from Graham Models from the UK. They have some very interesting models on the list. But I have to say, the quality was not that good. A lot of small holes forced me to work a lot with filler. Over the last months then I bought unpainted, unassembled kits from Hong Kong, the seller has different Ebay accounts but I am pretty sure, at the end it is all Panzer Depot.
So today I will show you pictures from both versions of the Scammell Pioneer. Honestly I do not like them both, with a small advantage of the model from Graham Models. But check and decide for yourself.

new 1/144 tank models from an 3D producer on Ebay 22/52

Yesterday evening I checked Ebay for some interesting offers in the scale 1/144. So I was surprised to find more than 30 new models all in 1/144 for sale. They all come from the US, shipping is not so cheap, but some of them are really interesting variants.
The bad point, the quality is not that good, it is not a high end 3D printer, and the seller says it too: produced for wargaming. So if you look for some interesting models for am acceptable price, check this seller: ebay-seller


and here some of the highlights:
