Latest 1 72 scale scratchbuilt railgun in progress


Recommended Posts

Hi guys have started my latest 1 72 scale railgun a French 400mm mle 1915 howitzer it was one of the French army most powerful artillery pieces.
After printing off dozens of photos off the net I am ready ,you can see from pics there is a lot of work on the barrel before anything else.
And photo of what it should look like when finished ,will send more pics as I progress.

Hi @bazer

 

Great! A chance to learn from the master! 👍

 

First question - if I may be so demanding:

 

Do you have any general arrangement drawings? or are you working solely off photos?

 

Second question;

 

If working from photos do you draw up your own set of drawings of just work ‘by eye’?

 

Am looking forward to seeing yet another superb outcome.

Hi Steven have a railgun  book with drawings in but I use a .lot of photos for detail work .     Some photos taken side on  can be used after scaling down or up to 1 72 scale .                        I have drawn my own for one or two guns .
