riverine battery 1/35
Posted by iroquois1963 on Thursday, October 04, 2018 5:38 AM

Hello has any .

I am on me to decide has to try to realize a barge of riverine battery. I have to buy carrico john's book, GUN AFLOAT, who already gives me a lot of information, the length and the width of barges, but it is the dimensions(size) of the box which bothers me, I have the dimensions(size) of the boxes of rhino ferry of June 6th, 44, and for me, they are the same but another person here in France also try to build one and put me the doubt because he tells me that those of the barges have no same .alors dimensions(size) when say you?

 

thank you for advance .

Hello Phil!

Looks like a very cool project, but I can't quite understand what is the question you are trying to ask.

As for mister John Carrico - I'm a very big fan of him, how can he be contacted?

Good luck with your modelling projects and have a nice day

PaweĊ‚

All comments and critique welcomed. Thanks for your honest opinions!

Is this what you are talking about?

If so, Hobby Fan makes one already.  John Carrico mastered it for them.

Got it.  I couldn't see your initial pic yesterday.  It looks like your block is right on size-wise.  Keep up the good work.

Hello heavy arty.

I have already asked has carrico john, and he tells me that I am right for the dimensions(size), and I wanted all the same to have more opinion(notice) to be on not to make anything. Here are photos of the drawing which I made with 2 howitzers of AFV club to have an idea of the surface of the barge in 1/35, more those of the howitzer with the brake of mouth of this box HOBBY FAN, and the following ones of a box made with the dimensions(size) which gives me the other person who makes her(it) so cardboard visiting card and a figurine to have an idea of size(greatness).

the length and the width of barges, but it is the dimensions(size) of the box which bothers me,

Ah, part of the confusion will be becasue the US Army used both one-piece (to purpose) barges, and the made up from modules "barge units."

The latter were intended more for creating combat bridges, as the floting parts could be assembled some what like Lego bricks to need.

As part of learning to use those block, Army bridging units had created "barges" to use as ferries, for when that was a better answer for a temporary bridge.

Army bridging units are a fascinating mix of engineers and sappers, with an elan mixed of pragmatism and imporvisation.

The air-portable platform noted above was criticized afterwards as not being very adaptable for waterways with large tidal variations.  But, mostly for not having nearly enough room for all the things artillery requires.  Which meant needing to detail a "Mike" boat (either an LCM-6 or LCM-8) or a barge to the location.  Which rather defeated the whole air-mobile concept of the thing.

The US Navy's Rivierine forces also complicated this, by using at least one "Ammi" (and amphibious landing modular) barge as a gun platform.

This was a point of some study for those going throug the USN's Riverine School.
