A very well executed piece of unusual hardware not often seen on these pages. Looking forward to the next chapter. :thumbup:

Sheer magic, Jürgen :clap: Ohne Zweifel- you have the mastery of lead solder, and linkages!. The pic highlighting the suspension (wheel propped up on books?) almost harks back to the days of Tonka Toys!, That made me smile!. :thumbup:

Well I'm guessing you are very good at it................
How do you come up with the ideas and method for such fine work ?
Its things like this, Barry C, and Mr Mcq11's work that defies belief, just to pop those off the top of my head.
Exquisite work.

It is the material and the possibility to create something out of it with simple means.
Brass is easy to work with a file.
It can be joined by soldering with a soldering iron.
You can also create shapes with solder.
The same with polystyrene and super glue.
The idea is born in the mind...

Today I have done a bit more.
I attached the eyelets for the cab tarpaulin and the front wall of the loading area.
Then I played around a bit with the 3.7 flak and added accessories to see where what fits best...

Superbly done, refined and unique. You are doing an inspiring model.

I assume it is the Vandra Flak 43.
