WWII German 37 mm Flak
This is a model of the 37mm SKC/30 Dopp LC/37 german Anti Aircraft gun in minifig scale 1:48.
About this creation


Variant with muzzle break. Not really like the orginal but looking somewhat cooler (thank Aidan!).



Variant II with a different kind of muzzle break.















Build from 45 parts with a size of 7.16cm x 4.76cm x 6.2cm. This AA gun was used e.g. on the German battleship Tirpitz (http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/163367) where 8 of this double guns were mounted.

It's orginal weight (complete double turret) was 3,670kg and it was able to fire 30-40 rounds per gun per minute to a max. distance of 8,500 meters (9,300 yards) at an elevation of 45°.

Comments welcome.

Building the Arado is a wonderful idea. It must be 32 studs wide and have 28 studs overall length. If you need it, I can mail you detail scans or point you to a good internet resource. But your mail never arrived here ...
Quoting Aidan Bryant Hm, I tried to e-mail you but Hotmail is being bizarre. Anyway, I was wondering if you will be including the Arado 196's that were carried on board. I have some work done on the design, but I don't have the parts to build the entire plane, so I'd have to send you partial pictures. However, I am unsure if it is in the correct scale, as it is 48 studs wide and 38 studs long.

Incredible, the detail is excellent, and the muzzles are also excellent.

Don't bother about nit picking. I am glad to discuss these details because it's always interesting to listen to other opinions. So I made another variant (see pic above). I think it's not much of a difference but perhaps we see some other comments and opinions here ...
Quoting Aidan Bryant I looked at some reference pictures, and although the new one looks cool, the end of the muzzle looks a little to big. Its kinda hard to describe what I meant to do, but if you take the tip of the antenna piece and push that through to hole in the cone piece you'll end up with a much smaller and more accurate muzzle. If what I said doesn't make sense, my HAAF-1 using the technique I'm describing for its four guns. Sorry if this seems like nit picking.

You are right! I tried to add a muzzle break and it looks cooler now (see picture above). But it is not really like the original :-) Thanks for your comment!
Quoting Aidan Bryant pretty cool looking! Although l don't know what the actual cannon looks like, l think the antennas would look better if the base was of each one was pointing into the sky. Basicly invert each one.

Nice. I've built something similar to this. But mines land based. Keep going.
