My Bazooka and Panzerschreck
(Custom lego elements by brickarms)
About this creation
I have tried to make these two as accurate and faithful to the real weapons as I can without the need to cut or glue lego pieces.
The Bazooka was one of the simplest, yet most effective of the Amercian WWII weapons. It was little more than a steel tube fitted with stocks for aiming and securing. It was primarily an anti-tank weapon, and was surprisingly effective as one, but it could also be used to clear buildings and flush out pillboxes.
I wanted to make it in that relatively new dark green colour lego are using for a lot of the Indiana Jones series, but I couldn't find enough of those small chimneys.
My bazooka's fitted with a sight to improve accuracy, as in CoDUO (if you know what I mean..)
When the Germans captured some Bazookas in Tunisia, their engineers copied their ingenious design and came up with the Panzerschreck. This weapon soon became the stuff of nightmares for Allied tank crews. It launched a 3.46 inch shell over an effective range of more than 160 yards.
Panzerschrecks appear in most videogames as either sand yellow or pale green. Since green was out of the question, and I had already used the sand colour for my Bazooka, I chose grey. My Panzerschreck has a sheild to protect the user from the rocket's burning propellant.
It also has a sight (as in MoHA).
The first piece on this step (4) is a brickarms custom monopod. Its not essential, but it was the only piece I could find to do the job.
