Christmas build 4 Das Werk/Amusing Hobby Wurzburg Radar

Postby snapdragon » Wed Jan 13, 2021 10:10 pm

Last build of my Crimble special.

Image

This is not Das Werks' actual work, but a reboxing of part of Amusing Hobbys Radar and Flak gun kit. I wish they had kept Amusing's instructions as their habit of making them look "Authentic" with fake stains etc makes things harder.

Image

Quite a simple build really and a paint job just brings it to life. After looking on the internet I decided to go with a 1945 paint job while in reality with it being Luftwaffe equipment and the majority of photos of the equipment being quite dark then it was probably all over Luftwaffe blue-grey.

Once again the instructions in places are not easy to follow and the "Authenticity" doesn't make it any easier. This is quite a nice offering from Amusing Hobby under the Das Werk brand and in actual fact although it is not easy to work out thanks to the instructions the dish will fold and rotate. It is a pity that the base doesn't fold and there are no wheeled bogies to have it in transport mode.

Nice as a diorama piece or in the cabinet as a curiosity.
