Sorry I can't help you with anything, never dealt with that scale.
Just my 2 cents but I would like to see your progress.

If you check the Modelcollect website, It previews several pics of the new fist of war lineup coming soon. I shows two new Haunebu II aircraft.

The following two wiki articles have photos and additional info on these cannons:

I bought both and they look great parked up in a siding on my exhibition layout, the excuse being that these guns spent much of the war touring the country as a recruiting aid as neither were effective weapons of war in WW2 they did alright in WW1. Boche Buster had a range of 26 miles, the channel is 22 miles wide at Dover and the guns were located 4 or 5 miles in land so at best could hit the beaches of Northern France.

OXFORD RAILS have released two r.r. guns named Gladiator and Boche Buster.  Really beautiful models, they also have suitable  steam  locos.  One loco also has a sound:  yes!  the roar of the gun shooting!!

 

 

The only draw back is the fact that both are in OO-HO scale: they run on HO  scale rails but the  models are 1/76 scale and not 1/87 scale.

 

Enjoy!

 

 

However, no ammo wagons has been released...

The same for the Rivarossi Hornby K5(E) Leopold which is sold out.  After many years

from the first release no ammo wagon is available and the structure on the back is still missing...

Hi Tony,

Thanks for posting your experiences of doing almost the exact conversion and modelling that I am currently undertaking.

Your mdels look good!

I hope the ones I am doing look as good once completed.

I have gone about the bogey/wheel convrsion differently thoough, getting US type bogies in the UK is not easy.

i am using an etched subframe within the existing bogie mouldings.

More on thaat once I ge it done!

Painting

The railguns plus support wagons will be in Winter Camo paint scheme as that is what the guy has asked for.

The support vehicles are a  bit more of a diverse colour ranging from the Yellow to the Winter mix - all good fun!

Thanks
Phil H

Hi Phil,

I made up some 1/144 Dragon kits some years ago, the K5 Leopold and a Karl Morser. I dispensed with the wheels that came with the kits and retrofitted standard n scale US style passenger bogies. I can operate these railway guns on my N scale layout. In he last photo you'll see a standard DB oil wagon sandwiched between them.
The camo style is a creation I came up with many , many years ago, doing HO military modelling.There's not a lot of difference between 144 and 160. I've adapted some 1/144 scale 88mm guns onto DB gondolas as Flak carriages.

Tony
