3D printed in matte translucent plastic that showcases incredibly fine and intricate details.
1/600 Scale Kriegsmarine 37mm/83 SK C/30 x10 suitable for all Airfix Kriegsmarine vessels where this weapon was used. Highly detailed parts designed specifically for 1/600 scale models.
This AA weapon was used on every major combatant ship of World War II. It was only capable of semi-automatic firing, with each shell being individually loaded, which made it a rather slow-firing weapon for anti-aircraft defense. For this reason, it was replaced on many ships in the latter part of the war with the 3.7 cm KM42 and 3.7 cm KM43.
In addition to the normal train and elevation axes, the mounting for this weapon had a third axis which stabilized the the gun carriage when the ship rolled or pitched. This allowed the gun to track an airplane without interference from the motion of the ship. However, problems with this mounting led to its abandonment in subsequent designs for 3.7 cm guns.
The 3.7 cm/L83 SK C/30U was designed for use on U-boats and was used on a "wet-mount."
Some quantity of these weapons were exported to Spain.
Used a vertically sliding breech block.
Some part cleanup will be necessary. The 3D printing process uses a waxy substance to support certain part features during the printing process. Although the parts are cleaned by Shapeways, some waxy residue may remain. It can be safely removed with water and a mild aqueous detergent like "Simple Green" using an old, soft toothbrush, Q-tips or pipe cleaners. Customers report that "Bestine" and "Goo Gone" also work well.During the printing process, liquid resin is cured by ultraviolet light. Microscopic bits of resin may remain uncured. Let your parts sit in direct sunlight for a few hours to fully cure the resin. Water-based acrylic paints meant for plastics is strongly recommended.
Other paints, especially enamels, may not cure on Frosted Detail 3D-printed plastics. Use dedicated model sprue cutters to remove parts to minimise damage to parts.
