    Takom artillery kits

    Hi all,
    I'm not a modeller as such but have just put together a kit made by a company called Takom. They have a 42cm 'Big Bertha' Krupp gun and a 21cm Morser.
    I've just completed the 42cm gun and the quality is superb. Its 1/35 scale and is a fair old size when finished (about 11" long).
    Excellent kit and superb easy instructions.
    Hoping they look into some of the heavy british guns......
    Cheers!

    Sorry chaps, hadn't thought of that...
    Here's the finished product. I decided to build it minus the front platform as seen on the box. Had a google regarding the 42cm's and a few of these guns were without the front platform, maybe mobility made it unworkable having to assemble it and dismantle as the lines moved?
    Either way, I think the piece looks good without, but thats just me.
    Hope you enjoy the pics!
    Cheers!
