I also worked with Dylan Lambert to make a second version of the magnetic couplers.



It's going to get interesting.

I picked up these really inexpensive lead canon from the UK - 42mm war game stuff. Crude but I think I can make them work for captured or battle damaged background pieces. I will add a few details to them and paint. These are 3 of 9 different ones I bought.

Hey Bud, Heath is Thomas correct?

Howitzers will look great!

Not sure about the couplers. Kinda in the dark as to what your doing with them. I thought you were link and pin ops?

Anyhow drive on!

Hi Philip,
Heath is Thomas' nick name.
The couplers are what are called chopper couplers, kind of like link and pin. The 3d design holds a small magnet that will allow semi automatic coupling. So they look like working choppers without the challenge of inserting the pins in the coupler sides.

Thanks George, the new couplers test batch have been ordered.

A tease of some work I am doing in the challenge thread. I have also been brining unfinished models up to speed; more to follow on that topic.

Really neat looking ammo Larry
What do the different colours & stripes mean?
They all appear to be the same size shells, so are they different types or ordnance ?
And what calibre canon do they fit ?


Regards Rob

My current build.

The colors and stripes do have meaning. The shells are all for 6" artillery.
The shell colors in the picture are:
Green - Smoke
Yellow - High Explosives
Black - Shrapnel

The Stripes indicate what they are filled with and some could have multiple stripes as they could be high explosive with smoke etc.

I hand painted them. I might try to use decals on some later.
