Hi, Jon!

Thank you for your kind words! Your attention is especially valuable to me. Truth.
May 20 was a"fight". Wanted to present the gun in "combat" environment. But, it did not work, for various reasons.
In " combat "was our"competitor." Also the layout of the gun Le.IG 18.

If the respected community is interested, I can tell you a little about the construction of the layout.

Alex,

Excellent video, its a pity the gun didn't work properly but it looked really good. Personally, I would like to see how you made the infantry gun, I bet it took a lot of work.

Jon

On the left side was probably hit by a projectile or mine. She suffered the most.
The axis was severely deformed. We straightened it out in the press. Small irregularities sanded .
The hub had to be made anew.
The broken edge of the axis is machined on a lathe and welded into place by welding.

Subsequently, the barrel had to be shortened. All sources on the Internet indicate the wrong size of the length of the trunk. Or there are differences in the understanding of this term

In the original, this is a casting part.
I made it welded.
