be sure that i envy you your haul marco! i hope you'll start it soon

it absolutely looks like a very fine kit but there's one thing that disturbs me:

i am talking about part mb-1 - that little shield ... "attension" is no german word and i have absolutely no clue what this word should express ... it looks like a manufacturer shield but afaik the 15k18 was built by rheinmetall and krupp ...

(btw.: on the second look i noticed another fumble on part mb-2 ... elevation in german would be "erhöhung" and not "erhohung". logically the abbreviation would be "erhöh." and not "erhoh." (i know this is just smartassing and no big prob in such a small scale but it still disturbs me!)

i tried to read decal #12 but the decyphering was too difficuld even in 300% magnification ... did i interpret it right as "achslafette"?

could you show us an enlarged view of that part of the decal sheet?

and while previewing this posting i discovered a third error on the third look - this time concerning the decal #4 and a spelling mistake: air pressure is written "luftdruck" and not "luftdurck"

cheers

Also in that same vein...I was taught the German abbr. for "Number" was "Nr.", as opposed to the English "No." (as MB-1 shows) Am I wrong?

Plate in question

The plate in question (with the spelling gaffs on it) is a look up table (range versus loading) that is commonly found on most German artillery pieces. The sFH18 saw some postwar use, sometimes rebarreled or chambered.

It is possible that these spelling issues are rooted in the use of a postwar modified gun as reference. It is possible the informational plaques were replaced to reflect the native lanquage of the postwar using nation.

Then again maybe not.. .I cannot find a word spelled this way with any of the most likey postwar users, that is Czechoslovakia or France. Maybe it is just a mistake.

Looks like a must have as soo many other kits.

But Im really missing the figures on the box-art. I was actually looking forward for a new set separately.

Cheers

well - no! you are right that the abbrev. of "nummer" is "nr." but here in germany "numero" is also used in it's abbreviation form "n" or "no." ... but during that german focused time "nr." would be the correct one ... i didn't think of that and so i paid no attention to that one ...

those spelling mistakes aside it surely is a must have .oO(thinking of all the scenery possibilities - yummi!) ... and sad that the figures are not included (they will sell like hot cookies when being released!)

cheers

Hey Mike!
Isn't "attension" a French word?
Anyway.... what are you doing in Albania?

Marco...you make me very envious.
