A facebook page on the Subject of the "Dicke Bertha " guns
Permalink   


I have set up a facebook page focusing on the "Dicke Bertha" guns where I have posted almost all the material I have on file. I think that it is too extensive to post it all on the Landship Forum.  Would it be acceptable to post the link to the facebook page here on the landship forum?

Regards,

Harry

Don't do Facebook - never have done.

In answer to the question on the 42cm projectiles:

The armour piercing projectile was painted blue-grey

The larger HE projectile was painted a yellow ochre colour (that's clay yellow not the later chrome yellow)

I'm sure there's a thread on this forum on the 42cm projectiles.

The cartridges for the 42cm Dicke Berta are documented at: https://www.kaisersbunker.com/cc/cc16.htm

and:

The wooden planks around the 42cm Gamma gerat  were for the assembly crane used to lift and move the components of the howitzer.

On page 11 of M. Romanych & M. Rupp's book on the German Siege Howitzers is an image of the Gamma gerat with crane. 

regards,

Charlie

Hi Harry

Although the "Dicke Bertha" is not of tremendous interest to me, I highly appreciate your research on that subject and sharing it with other modelers. I have also done more then thirty years of research on various subjects (for example Austro-Daimler M.17, Skoda Küstenmörser M.14, Skoda Gudrun and Barbara, Junovicz, Daimler DZR, …), that might be of interest for the modeler here, but I didn’t know how to share all that. It seems th me that Facebook would be a good way to do that. Thanks a lot! And it seems, that I should join Facebook too…

Cheers, Peter
