Big Bertha is biiigggg

April 10, 2016 in Armor

What I’m working on at the moment. It’s Takom’s 1/35 scale WW1 artillery piece. Nice kit, fit is good, details are crisp. The stands all have holes in the tread plate molded all the way through. The kit is somewhat simplified in spots, it would be like the Dragon Anzio Annie compared to the Trumpeter version. Which for me is good cause I can possibly finish it then. It’s missing the range poles and brackets, and any pioneer tools also. But it is impressive in size. The last picture is the parts left, the box was filled to the top when I started. And I know the work bench is a mess!

  1. As “messy” work bench tells as much of a story as a “too clean & neat” work bench (if ya get my drift). 🙂
    So are those parts going to used or are they ‘left over’…?

  2. Very impressive, and an unusual subject

  3. Like Robert says above, impressive to say the least. What was used to tow a beast like this?

  4. Nice looking kit, Steven. Any plans for a terrain base?

  5. I can think of other guns I would prefer to be shot with! That’s massive. Nice build as well by the way!

  6. Hello Steve – nice build an interesting as I have recently been reading “Doctor Zhivago” – don’t know why, it is hard to follow -but it describes these Big Bertha’s impact as seen from the opposing Russian troops point of view in the section that takes place during WWI. As Richard notes, there are other guns I would prefer to have shooting at me, that is for sure…
