Re: DAK Heavy weapons

Steffen Schöps
There is a new decent 2,8 cm Panzerbüchse made by Caesar for their set of Heavy Weapons for Paratroopers.
Thank you Steffen. I was trying to remember where I had seen the 2.8cm model in one or other set and of course it is the Caesar set that you mention.

The 'problem' is of course that half of the 'heavy weapons' outfit has already been released in the excellent DAK Mortars set. But without stretching things too far, a set with MG34s on tripod and also being carried, with ammunition carriers also, and some other 'useful' figures posed in such a way to allow them to be converted to artillery crew, would work as a set: 'DAK Machine guns' as a title.

I'm not sure we would need the 2.8cm in this set though: if it was 4 sprues then that would mean 4 guns, and this small A/T gun was numerically less common than, initially, the 37mm PAK36 and then during 1942/43 the 50mm PAK38, which was the backbone of the DAK Anti-tank artillery....and PSC make a very good set of 50mm guns already.
