I have a 1/35 Morser Karl-Gerat and would like to display it mounted on the special railway transporter required to move the gun. I don't have the capabilities to do it myself and would be willing to trade three 1/48 aircraft or discuss a price.
TIA

Hello Matt, You need not resort to scratch-building, either Dragon or Trumpeter released a kit of the Morser that included the transporter carriages. I believe it was Trumpeter but I am not sure. You may be able to find someone willing to part with just the parts for the transporters, if you don't want to buy another whole kit. Al

It was Trumpeter. The railway carriages were available with both initial and late (?) models.

Unfortunately, I don't know of anyone that would part with half of a $100 kit for less than $90. I was lucky enough to get the Morser for about $40. If people in this forum aren't up to the challenge, I will just have to devote my own time to it. Thanks anyway.

You'd gain more out of the exercise by attempting it yourself. Frankly I don't know of anyone that would build this for less than US$100.
