leFH18 Howitzer - 10mm vs 1/144

Vou dar início a uma série de posts relativos á diferença ou comparação entre as escalas 1/160, 1/150 e 1/144 (de acordo com o referido pelas marcas), ou dos tamanhos 10mm e 12mm.
Não pretendo fazer qualquer comparação entre a qualidade dos modelos dos vários fabricantes, de modo a evitar alguns mal entendidos.

I will start a series of posts related to the difference or comparison between scales 1/160, 1/150 and 1/144 (according to the brands info), or 10mm and 12mm sizes.
I do not intend to make any comparison between the quality of the models from various manufacturers, so as to avoid any misunderstandings.

The 10.5 cm leFH 18 was the standard divisional field howitzer used by the Wehrmacht during the Second World War. It was designed and developed by Rheinmetall in 1929-30 and entered service with the Wehrmacht in 1935. Generally it did not equip independent artillery battalions until after the Battle of Stalingrad in 1943. Before 1938 the leFH 18 was exported to Hungary and Spain. 53 were also exported to Finland, where they were known as 105 H 33. 166 leFH were exported to Bulgaria in 1943 and 1944 (until February 1st, 1944).

  1. Hello;

    I like very much the way you flock the bases of your miniatures (the left pendraken one).
    Could you tell me the paints you use to make them?

    Where can I buy the wooden boxes and atrezzo of the base?

    thank you very much
