From G43 to Wz.35 Ur

Hi everybody !

In last time (because I'm from Poland ) I bought for 15 zloty (5$) great, old book ''Polish Army 1939-1945 - the Colour and the Weapon''. Book have a lot of pictures and descriptions about Polish Weapon used in all countries in WWII. My attention refunded Anti-tank Rifle Wz.35 ,,Uruguay’’ (Ur). More about Ur rifle here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anti-tank_rifle,_model_35

And I want build this rifle in 1/35 . This project is ,,4fun’’ . German G43 have very simply shape to Ur. I have G43 Gen.2 form DML so I start this transform !

[Dragon’s model]

[Picture from Book]

So first I cut barrel and the magazine.

Next I cut details from Dragon and I correct rifle stock.

I find piece of wire and it will be a good new barrel. On photo it is too long.

My Ur will be about 5mm longer than the original. I try to do something with this but I want only a model of this rifle

Best regards, Mateusz !

Interesting idea...

Some facts:

The Polish Karibin wz 35 (commonly known after its designer Jaroslav Marosczek), which pioneered the use of a standard rifle caliber backed by an oversized cartridge. The increased muzzle velocity gave a penetration comparable to larger calibers, while the weapon could be much smaller. Between one and two thousand were produced in strictest secrecy and issue severly restricted; as a result in 1939 virtually no units were equiped with them, nor trained in its use [World War II Small Arms, John Weeks(Orbis/Black Cat, London 1979. ISBN 0-74810-0111-X)].

Later in the war they were handed over to the Italians [The Encyclodedia of Infantry Weapons of World War II, Ian V. Hogg(The Military Press/Bison Books/Crown, Greenwich CT, 1977. ISBN 0-517-31035-X)]

I think most ATRs (Anti-Tank Rifles) were pretty much ineffective by 1941 though.
