What is it? I can see the carriage is from the Pak 36.

A "done pile", LOL, never heard that one before, I like it. I bet someone could make a great cartoon out of it. :D

A german use for captured 75 mm barrels to get a light 75 mm field gun.

Googling could tell you more. Obviously the carriage was overtaxed despite the complicated muzzle brake. At this later stage in the war the Germans did everything to get more field guns to their troops and used all available equipment for it.
there is a model of this kit available from Attack in resin. This one beats all however , my compliments to the builder: Dont "throw" it on the done pile but "place" it in yr collection of beauties.
cheers

Hi John

Tidy work on an interesting looking piece.

Haha - the "done pile". I know what you mean. I put mine into those multi drawer organisers when completed; the big plastic ones with 30 or 40 drawers made to store nut and bolts, small electrical components etc. Keeps them safe and keeps the dust off them. Other than those that go onto dioramas.

As to their final fate, I have discussed this with a mate that models 1/72 & 1/48 aircraft to an extremely high standard. He has no kids, and never will at this stage of his life, and I only have a wife & daughters who think the hobby is, at best, a waste of time & space. We both know when we are trundled off to the old folks home our models (and my dioramas) will wind up as landfill

cheers
Neil

if i remember my wiki correctly, around 1200 were produced. I saw a photo on the net of one being towed by what appears to be a phanomen granite, so i may pair this with the beverly hillbillies one i did awhile back.

this one is the attack kit, using an ace pe shield and wheels and butchered cradle. the attack parts are the main gun lower carriage and the spade ends of the trailing legs.

my pile is one of my toolbox drawers, the main danger being co-workers who feel they HAVE to pick them up.

in the same boat, have a son and grandkids, but have failed to get anyone interested in history or modeling.

I think you are mixing up the Pak 97/38 and this IG37, barrels of the IG37 was newly build and Pak97/38 used old French M1897 barrels. IG37 was build as a replacement for the IG 18, shooting the same ammo but also with a bigger charge

anyway lovely model, scratch the barrel once but never got around to changing the Pak36 to fit it.
Greetings Patrick Mondria
for some of my work
