    four guns turret

    French pre-WW2 battleships Dunkerque, Strasbourg, Richelieu and Jean Bart, had eight big guns, splitted into two front turrets only, to spare armour weight, on the other hand, the mechanism allowing elevation couldn't act them separately: the twins right were bound, and the twin left too, so it could be considered as a 2x2 turret.

    Hello friends,

    Today only a few photos of ready built Geschütztürmen A, B, C
    On tower B and C still reach " Chicago pianos " .
    All together it is inserted on the ship 6 pieces of it as an air defense.
    But about that point I writes later.

    Hi Christoph,

    What do you use for the gun barrels?
    Did you by the pre made guns from GPM or do you build them by yourself?

    Your builds are allways so perfect and you build them so quikly...
    Congratulations for this ship.

    Can I make one sugestion?
    Can you put show some pictures old builds from you that we never see. I mean showing the the models ready.

    Regards
    Diamantino Mateus

    well done--and quick!

    I assume it is wire you are using for the fore/aft antennas? nice 'droop'.!

    Look forward to seeing the 'complete' picture..!

    Hello dear friends,
    Finally, the construction report is at the end. Now I show only the pictures I today has done. I have decided all pictures here reinstellen because in the principle to the construction report belong.
    I wanted to do the photos so that they point like it possibly a lot from the model. Whether has to me this succeeded? I do not know.
    I might still say that the nice climate and your auxiliary readiness had big influence on run this report. For it I might thank me with You from whole hearts.
    We see ourselves again with the next project "HMS VICTORY" I together with Michael and Rob does.

    With the best greetings
    Christoph

    Simply Awesome! I am sure no one has that much patience to build a ship like that. My respect to all ship builders.
