BL - 8 HOWITZER
Permalink   


Ahoj všichni tady na fóru. Prosím o radu. Iam staví sadu RODEN 1/35. Zde jsou tabulky - lepty. Jaký byl jejich význam? 

Byly použity v éře I. světové války na tech? Nebo jsou jen v muzeu? 

Děkuji za informace. Ivo z České republikykanonbl8.jpgkanon2.jpgkanon3.jpgkanon4.jpgkanon BL8,1.jpg

Hello everyone here on forum. I beg your advice. I am building a RODEN 1/35 kit. Here are the tables - etchings. Please, what was their significance?
Were they used in the WWI. era on tech? Or are they just in a museum?
Thank you so much for the info. Ivo from Czech Republic.

The surviving 8inch howitzer at St Petersburg doesn't have the rectangular plate on the left side of the receiver. I suspect it's a museum exhibit description

plate. I haven't been able to find an image with enough resolution to be able to resolve the text - I suspect it will be in Finnish since your image is of the

8inch howitzer at the Finnish Army Artillery Museum.

Regards,

Charlie

Found some images from the manual of the 8-inch howitzer - the online scanned manual done by Google is a mess but there are other images around.

Don't know about the right hand side (facing forward) of the receiver but the left hand side has a plate labelled "Recuperator Instruction Plate" - this can also be seen

on a period image of the 8-inch howitzer. The text of the manual has a long section on the maintenance of the recuperator and the many precautions required

when working with this - it makes sense to put these on an information plate.

Regards,

Charlie

Thank you very much for the information. Photo of the other side I heve now found. Please look - is it also a table with instructions for the operator?  Ivokanonbl8 1.jpg

I haven't got a drawing of the right hand side but the gun in Finland has a plate that looks like a smaller version of the plate on the other side of the receiver.

Regards,

Charlie

Here’s a link to the US Army manual I used to help with some of the parts placement.

Hello everyone here. Thank you for your help with the tables. Now I know the model will be mit tables. The model BL-8 already in color, now the work of weathering.

My last job done is Mark C Male. 1/35 Panzershop production. It was just a project - colouring is my fantasy. Ivo from Czech Republic.BL8.jpgMARK C.jpg

They both look nice in these pictures.
Could do some close-ups?
I would love to see more detail of your building and paintjobs.
Best regards,
Willem
