I'm jealous. Saving up to buy a 1/72 Dora. Maybe I will be distraut with a inheritance, soon and can buy my own. Look forward to the build.
I just received a (FREE!!!)* 1/72 Hasegawa K5(E) and am hoping to equip it with 1/64 wheels and attach it to flatcars with KD-802 (American Standard) couplers on the outside and matching chain link couplers on the inside so that I can operate this railgun on my ‘S’-scale layout.
This is actually my first piece of German equipment and the first piece of equipment I’m attempting to make railroad functional (though several pieces of equipment, including an M1977CBT have become railroad LOADS).
I’m hoping to find pictures or information on the transportation of ‘Leopold’ or ‘Robert’ (aka. Anzio Annie’ and ‘Anzio Express) from New York to their first permanent home at the Aberdeen Proving Grounds, where they were combined into a single functioning gun named ‘Leopold.’
I hope your project’s going well.
*I actually gave my friend a 1/72 Panzerjäger Tiger last month and, since he picked up the Hobbyboss K5(E), he gave me one of his Hasegawa K5(E)s.
