Update. Plus free sweets….

I’ve been neglecting my blogging duties for a while- apologies – so thought I’d do a quick update.

Not posted much recently for several reasons- not had a game in a while due to a combination of real life and the weather (had 12″ of snow on Friday night but the roads are clear at the moment). Also I’ve not had chance to get much done in the shed as most of my free time has been spent preparing a talk for the local history society which I did last Wednesday, went well and they have asked me to do another.

That said Evan brought over his Zulu collection this evening and the three of us (Brian was there too) had a great game so I’ll be doing a full report on that tomorrow.

The only thing I’ve got done in the shed all month has been four WW2 German guns. Rather than tell you what they are I’ll send out to the first person to correctly identify them a bag of sweets- probably wine gums.

Guess the guns- win sweets.

    From top left: quad 20mm Flak 38, 88mm Pak 43, 50mm Pak38, Pak 97/38 (French 75 on Pak 38 mount). Free sweets eh?

    2 out of 4 Tim- it was slightly more difficult than that.

    The sweets are still up for grabs.



  3. German Quad 20mm Flak; German Pak 40, German Pak 38. The gun in front is interesting. It is on a Pak 38 carriage and could be either a Pak 97/38 or a very late war IG37 Infantry Gun. The IG37 had a square muzzle brake, the Pak 97/38 a pepper-pot muzzle brake. I am having difficulty telling which one it is because of the angle of the picture.

  4. If that is a Pak 43/41 it isn’t a very good model. The barrel isn’t long enough. Metal instead of plastic mold I would suspect. See http://www.flickr.com/photos/69768863@N00/2594535358/in/set-72157604253869731/ and look in the lower right corner for the gun under the camo net. 1/35 Pak 40 with a 1/48 88L70 from a Nashorn. Also see picture http://www.flickr.com/photos/69768863@N00/2594521206/in/set-72157604253869731 for a rear view.
