"Back To Old Mother Russia" Except This Time With a Twist.....
The story Hitler died in late 44 of a Heart Attack.. Germany sued for a Condishinial Surrender.. The SS was disbanded, a new unit The Wolfs Guard was formed.. The Maltese Cross replaced the Swastika on all uniform emblems and flags.. The German War Machine was aloud to continue to build and develop equipment and arms.. This is a combined force of German and Allied Troops disembarking from a freight train on their way to OLD MOTHER RUSSIA Spring 1946.. The Freight Train is being a competed by an Armored Train
great job building this armored class 52. Only one mistake's there. There never was an AA-gun on the tender decking. The top of the tender is the top of the water compartment, there is no possibility to secure the AA-gun and it's to weak for the recoil power. A second reason is that there is not enough room in the profile for a gun. Somewhere in the net you can find a photo of a AA-Gun on top of a tender of a German steam engine, but this photo is an error in looking, the gun is on a tower behind the tender. The drawing in Dt. Panzerzüge p. 134 is just a project, the tender for this train is on the left side of the right AA-gun-wagon. As far as I know there was only one fully armored BR 52 in the conquered by Czechoslovakian partisans and used by Czech army a short time after WWII and then rebuilt to normal condition. Most armored steam engines in Germany during WWII belonged to class 57. There are good scale drawings of BP 42, 44 and rail-cars in 'Panzerzug I & Panzerzug II' by Waldemar Trojca ISBN 3-925 480-47-1 & 3-925 480-71-4
Hey southsix1 I don't know if it was done or not.. But with a little structural reinforcing a Flak could be carried on this particular Tender.. This is the one supplied in the Trumpeter kit.. The tender that is in the CMK kit is a different type.. The one that I am using in a box instead of a tub.. The drawings for the armored Br 52 Loko is of the Tub type tender.. You don't see many pictures of the BOX type tender anyway..
