Scratch built 15cm sIG 33

Post by JOHN BOND 001 »

Took advantage of the very hot weather here in Sydney last weekend as an excuse to stay indoors, not venture into the sun and work on a number of wargaming projects, this being one of them, a Scratch Built 15cm sIG33.

Great workmanship.... begs question why?
I would have thought there are lots of available 15mm model guns of the15cm sIG33 ?
I enjoy making items I cannot find in trade etc., and I can understand doing it for doing its sake. (My skills or patience are not at level you have shown in your blog, mind.)

There are only 2 models AFAIK of the SiG 15cm Warlords which I have which is 1/48th and magnificently over scale, and JTFM which may take many months to obtain and is in resin.

There is also a 3D printed version of the gun available. I saw one produced in resin for a game last year and it did look pretty good.
I've got two of the JTFM models which I ordered direct from Canada - their postal service have clearly not yet discovered 'technology'.
Then there are these 1/48 but ..... https://www.promodels.eu/en/15-cm-schwe ... -2776.html

A similar gun model, Krupp 15cm FH13/17 Lange, has been available in metal for years from Irregular Miniatures in 15mm; as is the German 15cm FH02. 1902 field howitzer. Some photos of these simple (barrel, shield, 2 wheels, carriage) well executed many years ago.

Yes but I've not used those figures for my early war gun.

No, I was not impressed with their crew figures I received for my Russians either, more 25mm than 28mm

Thanks all for your comments

Allan, I'm not to keen on the 3D printed stuff at the moment, followed the link, the gun looks nice but the normal price looks a bit on the very expensive side, lucky its been discounted. ;)

CarlL, the one I made is for 28mm figures, I didn't know that JTFM make the siG33, I don't bother ordering anything from them as my last order took 7 plus months for it to arrive, I know its not the sellers fault but the Canadian postal service is terrible.
Sometimes the need to scratch build items does save a bit of money, when I construct the Brecout Manor for a one of big event, I bought one of the guns from Warlord games and used that as a reference to build 3 others from cardboard, matches and odd bits of plastic sprues . ;) If you notice the shield and wheels are made from cardboard :)

cheers John
