zeppelfahrt WIP K-Wagen

WIP: I have printed these 28mm tanks with AWT in mind. I am looking for suitable runes to decorate them after painting.  The K-Wagen will have barbed wire and maybe a sandbagged machine gun emplacement on top.

Have a thread zeppelfahrt

Wow, that K Wagen is enormous! You could probably put a small village on top of it!

What is the side mounted weapon on the A7V?

At risk of repeating what’s already been said I simply have to point out how enormous that K-wagen is! 3D printing has really energised this hobby, the model looks utterly stunning- though I’m sure it’ll look even better once you’ve painted it up ;)

It is enormous.
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/K-Wagen
According to Wikipedia it is 13 metres long by 6 metres wide (1/50 scale 260mm by 120mm).
Four 77mm fortress guns and 7 HMGs. Twenty seven crew.

MEIN GOTT!  DAS IST GROSSE.   

That must have taken a long time to print on a 3d printer.

It took just over 4 1/2 days.  About 110 hours or so. 

I did it on a Creality Ender 3.  That machine is a real workhorse.
