This listing focuses on the Early & Late Versions of the British 6 pdr 57mm Anti-Tank Gun. You will receive files sufficient to print the guns in a number of ways:
- Deployed, breach closed for firing, gun sight cover open.
- Deployed, breach open for loading, gun sight cover open.
- Towed version. Trail legs closed and secured. Hand breaks for the road wheels not applied. Gun sight cover closed. Ready ammo removed from behind shield.
I have included some pre-supported versions of the main parts. The supports tend to come away from the main carriage in one piece, see the screen shot image for detail. Those under the main shield and gun need to be removed separately. Take care removing the support material from around the elevation wheel. This can be tricky so a file for a repair piece has been included. There are many thin and detailed parts on the gun so patience when you clean the print supports away. Hand breaks, levers near the breach, the open gun sight cover, the elevation wheel, the handle grips on the trail arms, the locking army in the open position to secure the trail legs together are all delicate. I have had to clean dozens of these Early Version 6 pdr prints for Ebay sales and they can all be cleaned safely with a sharp knife and a steady patient application of pressure.
The model is also enhanced by files offering you an open and closed ammunition case.
A total of 22 files are included and enable you to make the 6 pdr gun in SIX different configurations.
These models were design by Neal Bowskill Copyright April 2021 & May 2022. No printing of these files for commercial gain is permitted.
