Typ VII C Deckgun Collection
« on: 21 Aug , 2018, 11:20 »
Hi Guys

I was thinking to make a threat of the Submarine Deckguns here, where we can collect all typs of Pictures ,questions and topics to not have many many different locations of the same topic .
Feel free to share and jump in . :)
I am starting with a question of the Part on top of the deckgun (marked in red ) as far as i could find out its not a kind of a gunsight or such for the gun i dont have a realy good picture of this so
i may ask if anyone know whats this part for and if there maybe a better picture of this around .in some of the pictures of this parts i believe there is a pointer only with some kind of scale but thats only a speculation of myselfe .
thanks for solving the first issue

br David

David, according to David Westwood's "anatomy of the ship-The type VII U-boat" (page 91) it's the gun lead sight. I do have close-ups of it and if you send me your email address in a PM am more than happy to send them over, as i don't know how to post pics on the AMP forum anymore (I cannot rely on my photobucket account anymore and my photo archive on it is gone -too bad-)
Cheers

Hi David,
are you building a 1/48 Type VIIC ? I would very interested in seeing your work....
About the 8.8 deck gun, do you know the 1/48 Eduard kit ( http://www.hyperscale.com/2017/reviews/accessories/eduard648327reviewbg_1.htm ) ?
I bought it : fantastic !!!!
