Twin 40mm Bofors

This is a scratch built model of twin 40mm Bofors I made a couple of years ago.I’v done a little bit of work on them recently by taking off 10mm off each barrel and giving it a new paint job after seeing a picture of this paint scheme and a different base.Not sure of the scale but is eleven inches high with full elevation.

3 additional images. Click to enlarge.

  1. I’m at a loss for words regarding your scratch building techniques – absolutely stunning craftsmanship, sir !!

  2. Craig said it all, Craftsmanship!

  3. Excellent scratch building

  4. Great job, Derek. I have always thought the twin 40 looked really cool. I have thought it would be cool to build, but I change my mind when I remember that my building skills are a long way from being able to make mine look like yours. What is the scale of your scratchbuild?

  5. Beautiful scratch build.

  6. Gorgeous work, Derek, I really look forward to your builds. Superb craftsmanship.

    Now, could you do me about eight in 1/350, same detail…


  7. Derek, your builds are all very well done. I am always impressed by them, but rarely comment. This build, however, is awesome to me. David beat me to the comment, because I too could use about 8… or 9. 🙂

    Great job!
