Mud huts. And better pictures of those ‘mystery’ guns.

I’ve just finished these Mud huts from S and S models. Simple little pieces that will be perfect for my African projects, easy to paint up too.

Also I’ve taken a couple more pics of the guns- the pack of sweets are still up for grabs….

All of them can be found in Hogg's 'German Artillery of World War Two' book.

Top view, the uppermost pair are the obvious ones.

  1. Upper Left German Quad 20mm AA gun
    Upper Right Pak 43/41 (model has the two part barrel of an 88L71 so it is not 75mm Pak 40)
    Lower Right Pak 40 7.5cm L46 anti-tank gun. No double shield and larger than the IG gun to its left whose shield does look like a Pak 38. Also makes the 43/41 larger.
    Lower Left 7.5cm Infanterie Geschutz 37 This gun shouldn’t have the double shield of the Pak 38. It is on a Pak 36 carriage. The 7.5cm IG 42nA has different wheels and shield. IG 37 has squared muzzle brake with 4 vents per side. 42 nA has a round muzzle brake.

    Hard to tell the scale. Like looking at Bismark and Prinz Eugen.but not the two together..

  2. Pete S/ SP says:

    1st one correct- An MMS Quad 20mm.
    2nd one correct- A very old Hinhcliffe PAK 43/41 (was a dodgy old 2nd hand model had to scratchbuild both spades for it).
    3rd- Lower Right is an MMS 75mm FK 7M85, PAK 40 barrel on field gun carriage to give it extra elevation.
    4th- Lower left is a SHQ PAK 50- cut down PAK 40 barrel with on outsized muzzle brake. That said I’ve also read it was a 75mm L24 mounted out of a tank, take your pick really as it was so late war it probably didn’t see service.

    Cheers,

    Pete.
