1 72 scale scratchbuilt French 400 mm railgun


Recommended Posts

Hi guys finished latest scratchbuilt railgun , Saint Chamond built eight of these very large calibre 400 mm howitzers fielded in the summer of 1916 they were very effective.

The model is in 1 72 scale, 12 inches long hand painted in the usual French patterned camouflage figs are from W D models.

This is a most amazing scratch-build surrounded by a very realistic busyness. These rail guns are impressive. I wonder where you get the original detail from?

Hi Steve sorry for delay I have a few books on railguns with two having line drawing also found some original plans on line but most are built from photos sourced on line.

How long does something like that take to do? 

Couple of months on average depends on complexity of model.
