I really do feel flattered when you say that I have my own style

Oh, and the Mortar has been started too. I am waiting for the Friuls to be delivered so I can finish the lower half. The upper half has also been started...

Cheers friend. To be honest, I'm further up the road as I show, since the carrying/rotating constructions and the lifting arms have been constructed and painted too.

Looking good already, .

Cheers, ,

Thanks, so do I 🤣
While I will depict the carriers in grey, the mortar itself will be in dark yellow.

While forced to stay at home, time to build is available rather abundant. So, a new box has been opened after finishing the M1 gun (see https://www.armorama.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=SquawkBox&file=index&req=viewtopic&topic_id=284607&page=1), and before finishing the dio

Again some heavy metal arty... 1:35th scale Mörser Karl with is accompanying railway carriers from Trumpeter. Also the corresponding figures and munitions panzer 4 will be included. Some more things are still brewing in my mind, but I'll see about that later... Something like a couple of waggons, a locomotive (maybe 2) and a Opel Maultier, all in a railyard.
