At last, the 100 ton gun (17.72 inch, 2000 pounder).
Armstrong only built 12 fully operational guns, 8 for the Royal Italian Navy and 4 for the British Army. Of the british guns, 2 went to Gibraltar and 2 to Malta, each to one gun battery in ad hoc forts built in 1883 to 1884, but due to hydraulic problems, the batteries were fully operative only in 1889. Cheers.
NB. I'm not sure if the pinkish paintjob in the gun at Fort Rinella is historically accurate, but the gun is shown in that way in recent pics, even with a two tone camouflage.
Hello every one. Long time since I posted something last time. I wanted to improve my early work, and I did some research. Here is the remake of FAP trucks I posted long time ago. As the most differences with models are visible on front end of truck, I introduced the front view.
For start here is the FAP 1314, the most known model from FAP factory mass produced from 1962 until 1992. The truck is based on Saurer 6 GAF model that FAP bought license in 1953.
The FAP 1314K has K letter in it's name due it is a dump truck (kiper on Serbo-croatian).
The FAP 1314S has S letter in it's name due it is an all road truck with 4x4 configuration (svetočkaš on Serbo-croatian). The FAP 1314SK is 4x4 dump truck.
Тhe military version of this truck had title FAP 1314 SK/A (A for army - armisjki) for dump truck lorry. The military tank trucks had letter C in their title (cisterna) with letters V for water and G for fuel (voda and gorivo). The mobile workshop truck has R letter (radionica).
And for the end is the rare mode of 1314, the semi-trailer truck, marked as FAP 1314T (tegljač).
I would like to ask the moderator that puts links of drawings in the FD Scale Land Vehicles master list to replace the old links for FAP-1314 with this new improved work.
