Hi guys

Working on this gun/limber set, need to tinker with it, there are some very delicate parts, not for handling, as fingers can't get to the delicate parts, but for removal from the supports in post production, the handwheels and struts in the middle of trails sometimes break away during the process, but otherwise I'm pretty happy with it, it's a reworking of the Bergmann file.

Now for my question, I have also made the rubber tyre version, and I'd like to make 2 sets, one towed by a Krupp, the other by the Sdkfz 10 as pictured, does anyone know the designation name/number of the limber in the picture with the sdkfz 10? And does anyone have any better pictures of that limber? It looks a little like the the If.5 MG Wagon limber, which I have already made, but without the seating for crew, but I'm not sure, any help would be appreciated.

The G18 was usually towed directly by the SdKfz 10 without a limber. This to me looks like an If 8 infantry cart (with mid-war metal-spoked wheels) being utilised to carry extra kit rather than a full-on limber. You will notice that the gun/tractor combination in front does not have a limber as would be normal. In short, I think that this is a local improvisation and you just need to print an ordinary If 8 to represent it.

Turns out it is a Soviet universal limber.

Now that is interesting. Where did you dig the info up?

It's the 1937 model, there's a scale drawing on this page

Now how about respect for Gunner Dunbar?

How many of us could have spotted that this was Soviet kit, acquired by the even more nasty, bad guys?

This whole forum at its best.

As you say, brilliantly done. Kudos to the Gunner.

Gunner Dunbar13 Aug 2023 1:23 p.m. PST

No kudos warranted here, I just passed on info I was given.

Is the Russian limber on your to do list?

Gunner Dunbar15 Aug 2023 1:23 p.m. PST

I have sourced a license for the Russian limber, saves me making it myself, to much to do.
