Panzer Concepts 28cm "Bruno" W.W.1
« on: November 07, 2019, 10:24:32 PM »
Good day folks, here's a side project I'm working on as well as my Great War aircraft. I'm very much into AFV modelling, and started building Panzer Concepts 1/35 resin kit of the 28cm Bruno railway gun as used in World War One. The particular one I'm building was referred to as the "Amiens Gun", captured by the Australians during that conflict. For a size comparison, I've included the Takom 1/35 21cm Morser (yet another current project) in one of the photos.

The railway gun will take a very long time to complete, and is an ideal retirement project for these long Canadian winters we've just entered :-) When finished, the model should measure out at over 2 feet long on it's rail line base.
Cheers,
Gary

Wow! Great looking kit. Pretty sure that barrel is on display at the Australian War Memorial here in Canberra (along with a morser).

There was a 1/3 scale model of Bruno at Peter Jackson's Great War exhibition at The Dominion Museum in Wellington, New Zealand. Sadly the exhibition closed a while back

















I don't know how authentic the model's camouflage is - however it was in a section of the exhibition dealing specifically with camouflage and PJ is known for getting details right...

Cool subject, Gary. Iwas not aware of the fact that such big railway guns were used in WWI, too. Very interesting!

James - thanks for those amazing photos. That was an excellent exhibit, and I can sure use the scheme for reference. Although my model will have this camo pattern, it will be more subdued in colour and well weathered.
Cheers,
Gary
