10,5cm lFH 1898/09
Permalink   


I have made a bit of progress stripping the 10,5cm lFH 98/09 down for restoration.  I don't have much text on these pages yet but you will see the elevation, traverse, spade, recoil mechanism, and breech mechanism are all disassembled.  The next steps, whenever I get leave time again, will be to sand blast most of the parts, rebuild anything broken or missing and then reassembly.  Reassembly will include some riveting and reconstruction of some sheet metal.  Hopefully, it will be firing again in about a year.  This is also the howitzer I recently completed the restoration for the Limber (Protze) for. Here is the link:

also, the limber for the 10,5cm lFH 98/09:

This is the specimen I am anxious to see restored.  Please continue the "in progress" photographs.

Here is a little more work on the German 10,5cm lFH 98/09:

The howitzer is mostly sandblasted now and the spade works.  More to come...
