Another side project... Vomag with 88
« on: March 02, 2021, 06:54:56 AM »
Another project started...  It's been niggling for a while and I got a prompt from a friend to revisit it.  Despite the fact I don't need it...

It will be getting a Rubicon 88 as there is no point drawing it!

My obsession with tyre patterns is almost as bad as my rivet counting.  Each tyre can take we or more hours to get right... :o

It's not finished yet.  Still the cab interior and a check over for details to go.

It's not commercially viable so it'll be available on my wargaming3d.com page once it's done

I've no soviet marines, that's not me ;) I don't do squidgy things only hard surfaces. 
Wargaming3d.com is a multi-vendor site.

Soviet Marines are from Eugene, a guy from Russia IIRC.

Nearly done.  Just need my Rubicon 88 to turn up so I can make the mount fit and finess a few bits.
Then we play the game of "Will it print!"

What I love about this madness...is...knowing a bit about vehicle design, the amount of strength needed in that center section to hold an 88 is astounding.  I know these were actually produce...I wonder how long they lasted!

Apparently they chose the Vomag as they had developed the heavy framed bus which made them a lot more stable than their contemporaries. They were also hugely over engineered and just about had the capacity to carry the gun.   Something like a 20 ton max weight or similar.  They survived fro. Something like 1940nright through to the fall of berlin.  A lot of action around Budapest against ground targets allegedly.

It's printed (except the steering wheel which I forgot...) And the 88 is built So when this ankle biter finally nods off I'll assemble it and get some pics.
