Eurobricks' Finest - MOCathlon 'Real Vehicle' entry (Round 2)
About this creation
The 15cm s.IG.33 Infantry gun or 15cm schwere Infanterie-Geschütz Model 33, was first introduced as early as 1933 and was the heaviest of the German infantry guns. The development of a hollow-charge anti-tank round plus a stick grenade for use against fortifications meant that the gun would continue to be used tight up until the end of World War II.

I originally started toying with this MOC to feature in an Indiana Jones LEGO comic I was working on which never went ahead. The MOCathlon gave me the boost to refinf my original design dramatically, making it far more accurate!

A gun like this would be crewed by several men but I've just included one here for the purposes of scale.





The front barrel can independantly pivot upwards up to 80 degrees - I forgot to take a photo of this but will most likely sort that soon!





The bar at the back serves for quick redeployment...



It's great fun trying to get detail into smaller builds like this and I'm really happy with how this turned out. I hope you like it!

This is great. Could I use this for a WW2 Diorama I am making. If so, could you post some instructions. Thanks.

Quoting Lee Jones Players do not need to build in every category, but the entire team must build in all 30 categories before you can build in a category a second time. You can speed ahead as much as you like. But, your team may not duplicate any of the 30 categories UNTIL all 30 have been covered. Under investigation for possible DQ. Lee.
I posted it purely because I had the photos ready - no malice intended. I knew we'd hit our 30 mark and didn't see the harm in it. Hope it'll still be accepted!

Thanks for the feedback.
Quoting Philip Stark Very cool pedro! I love the high level of detail. Will you add this to the MOCathlon group after we have the first 30 finished then? How's your Clone Wars entry coming along? Excellent work.
Aye, I'll add it soon as we hit our golden 30. Been furiously wokring away at my Clone Wars episode, just finished building, away to take the photos... ;>

Nice! It looks so clean and real! Just a quick question: Is the background printer paper? It looks really good. Me, I fail at backgrounds...sigh...

Quoting Braeden G Not bad but the blast sheilds should be a bit smaller
It's a challenge getting the proportions right at this size - I varied the shields a fair bit (there's only a single stud in it most ways!) before settling at this size which I reckon looks about as close as it can do at this scale.
