30.5cm Bär tiger tank Amusing Hobby
Posted by Razzie43 on Thursday, October 05, 2017 1:52 PM

This model is only made by 3 company's

Trumpeter (review) : https://www.cybermodeler.com/hobby/kits/tru/kit_tru_9535.shtml 

Amusing Hobby (review) : 

http://www.themodellingnews.com/2017/06/in-boxed-35th-scale-305cm-morser-bar.html

New connection (no reviews!!)

 

History :  In early 1943, Krupp proposed to mount a 30.5cm L/16 mortar in an enclosed superstructure, and that by May of the same year, resulted in a conceptual design known as the Bär (Bear). The gun would have an elevation arc of 0 to 70 degrees and a limited traverse of 2 degrees right or left. It should be capable of firing two types of shells: high-explosive and concrete-piercing munitions. The vehicle would be well protected by having 130mm armor on its upper hull, 80mm on its sides, and 50mm on top. The vehicle however did not progress beyond the design stage as a competing design being worked on by Alkett was chosen and eventually produced as the Sturmmörser on the Tiger I chassis. 

The box was 15 euro more then trumpeter.(no rubber tracks inside A.H.)

Thank you my friends...

Well it's not a kit like dragon...it's more like Tamiya(fast and easy build)

The wheels are done.

I start first with a hairspray over my red primer of vallejo.

Then i use tamiya paint...(green and dark yellow)

Then came my sponge with some colors of vallejo air,and this is the result after 1 week.

The front and back wheels are done with Humbroll 27004 metal coat.

                       --[Damn i miss my 27003(sold out in my country)]--

It seems more shining in real then on photo...mmm strange!!

 Almost forgot : with a rusty wash on the outside of the wheels.

Nice work there! Never built anything by Amusing, good to hear it's a quality kit.
