Hi!
Back with more, this time some work was made to the loading platform and
the shells and charges carts. I did not liked the way the platform turned
Because of the joint line on the anti-slip surface. So decided to redo the surface.

This is how it looks


All the details are removed and the entire surface is sanded smooth


A piece of styrene sheet .60 x 148.5mm x 96mm is cut and glued in place


Aluminum contour mesh is used again to make the new surface




The piece is cut a little bigger, glued in place and then trimmed




Evergreen 4.0mm is used to make the rails for the platform


First the center rails are cut


Then the side rails, note the different pattern, after studying photos
Of the real platform this is my interpretation of the pattern




Here the intersections are cut open and sanded smooth


And the finished platform ready for paint


Here are the measurements for the rails placement, the measurements
Lines are from the ¨center of each rail.


Now my attention turned to the loading carts, the molded
On beds are removed and new ones constructed
Here half of the bed is removed


Side view of the molded bed


The bed completely removed


0.40mm Styrene sheet is used to make the new floors for the carts
Measuring 20.65mm x 146.12mm long




The wheels had the retaining disk removed and a piece of
2.35mm x 17mm rod added as in the reference photos

Next all the side details are removed and the area sanded smooth


Extra parts from the kits brake system are used to make the
Carts brakes. This are cut to size and glued to each cart


The brake pads are cut almost in half the length, then sanded smooth


Here the finished brakes, the arms are the kits originals
Also cut in length and the original rod is glued from one arm
To the other and a piece of styrene at each end to work as a shim


Brake levers from the Tamiya 88 are added to each cart, a small piece of square styrene
4 x 4 x 4mm With a verlinden bolt serves as the brake base




The back part of each cart is cut flush and sanded smooth




Also all the side details are removed


A rectangular tube 5 x 6.22mm is cut in pieces to make the side rail supports


Here are the measurements






The back part is removed




Test fit on the cart


Using a .80 styrene sheet all the supports are glued to make the
Top part for each support




After cutting each and some sanding it look like this, you
Need 14 bases for each cart

I used 4mm styrene channel for the carts top rails
6 for each cart, 30mm long


It looks like this now, still to add more details to each side


Here are the measurements for the placing of the rails and details
Each line marks the center of each part location


The push bars are made with the same 1.5mm brass tube as the hand rails


Still more work has being done to the carts, thatís coming on the next update

Thanks!
Abdin

Hi my friends, after a short vacation Iím back for more. Work on the loading carts is finished
Here are the last details to it.

The beds are made next, a styrene master is made using .80 styrene sheet
Measuring 148mm long x 20mm, the two sides are 148mm x 3mm


Then 3 cross members are made


The parts are glued together




Two strips 3mm and longer than the bed are glued on the top and trimmed to size






Next the top is made with .010 styrene it is cut a little bigger and trimmed to shape
I made it 21mm x 150


I used a ĺ piece of pipe to hold the styrene in place as it dry


After trimming the excess styrene I made a mold of the bed




Time to try it on the cart






The second bed is made and trimmed to the correct length, the charge bed is shorter
Than the shell bed, it is cut to 128mm long

Now the bed locks are constructed using 0.80 styrene, 8 blocks 6mm x 5mm are cut


This are cut to shape, it looks like socks


Here the charge bed and the side locks in place, the locks prevent the bed from moving,
When the charges are ready the locks rotates allowing the bed to be pushed to the side and into the loading platform

Now is time to make the box for the charge cart, I think it contains the fuses for the cartriges?
I used a .050 styrene sheet, two side panels of 7 x 7mm and four 20 x 7 mm panels


The parts are glued to form the box


Two strips of small chain from the Aber famo set are used for the box door


The box is dry tested on the cart


Styrene rod is used to simulate the hinges


Again 0.50 styrene is used to make the cartridge retainer bar, two strips
2.5 x 8mm and one 2.5 x 22mm


It looks like this, the sides are cut at an angle for it to fit correctly


Two Verlinden resin bolts are glued at each side


Fit test of the aluminum cartridge


I used the brake levers from a Tamiya 88 for the carts brakes


I made resin copies of a small hand wheel for the bed looks for each cart
A small piece of styrene rod is used for the small handle on each hand wheel


Here all the parts are already glued in place and the carts are finally finished


Both carts side to side, the shell cart have one side of the bed locks lowered
So the bed can be push to the loading platform


Comparison of the carts


Charges cart


Shell cart


Some of the reference photos








With the carts finished the utility bed is next
The model instructions tells you to use this bed as the shell loading bed, but it is a
Utility bed, it is used to help load the barrel cleaning brush into the breach block To clean the barrel.
