Third the 15 cm Schwere Fieldhaubitze (M 94)

1/35 Scale Kit No. R3D-204

 

This time in 1/35 scale the Austro-Hungarian 15 cm Moerser M80 Howitzer/mortar.

 

All the rivets are there, all accounted for. The barrel is totally hollow, rifling groves are present, hollow breech with a working and sliding breech block. Then he attacks the elevation gear. The teeth are so tinny and well defined .

 

The gun elevates, breech operates, barrel is hollow, and if you insert a shell in the breech it can slide out the barrel, ram rod included.

 

The gun mount is very nicely detailed on the outside. But it is even more detailed on the inside. Rigid panels, "L" brackets with riveting, and "C" channels are nicely recreated. The elevation wheel is so delicately depicted. It has a hole in the back to receive the insertion pin on the chassis. Handling pins...., well wear you magnification glasses. Tinny, tinny with their associated bolts and rivets.

 

If the detail is not enough, the kit includes the loading tray, 8 bombs, pick, shovel, sledgehammer, ram rod and swab brush. The gun with the accessories is ready for your diorama

 

Available on ebay: eBay item number: 193227714422
