Cymbeline Mk2 on AA 432

Recommended Posts

Bear with me on this. I am new to the forum and not absolutely sure how to post photos. I have taken a link from my Onedrive to see what will happen.

I had wanted to build a Cymbeline Mk2 mounted on a 432 for sime time now based on one I worked on from 49 Regt RA based in Hohne in the late 70s. 

I Used the Accurate Armour 432 (Takom not available then) as the base. I also had some old photos of 432s on Hohne ranges for reference.

Now to post and see if it works.

Hello, a fairly easy way to post pics is to join imgur (free) and they have a forum specific link that you just copy and paste - uploading the pics is a bit of time, maybe that helps ?

Thanks Combat. I will have a look at igur later. In the meantime it looks like I have been able to embed pics from Flikr. Seems a bit cumbersome getting rid of extra code though.

OK. So to the model. Pic below shows the inside of the 432, This was done frommemory so may not be absolutely correct. On RHS you can see the rack for spare electronic unit and generator (only electronic box fitted here. In front is the table hold the radar controllers ( Indicator Azimuth and Range) Rest of lower inside as per kit.

Next is the radar mount and hydraulic rams; Legs are the levelling rams to level cymbeline.

Thanks Wagtail. However I was one of the guys that fixed what you gunners broke. :smile:   I was REME but spent all my time in serving with Arty regiments (LADs and Wksps). Will try to get some more photos up soon.
