New 1/35 FuSE-65 Würzburg-Riese Radar from Hauler

This is partial text from the full article (usually with photos) at https://armorama.com/news/hauler-fuse-65-wurzburg-riese-radar

Interestinglooking model radar for sure.

Würzburg radar also had use after the war in astronomy.

“Dutch scientists brought several of the surplus German coastal Würzburg radars to the Radio Transmitting Station in Kootwijk, Netherlands in the early 1950s. There, they were used in experiments important in the development of early radio astronomy specifically the discovery of the hydrogen line and subsequent mapping of the spiral arms of the Milky Way galaxy.”

A couple were used until 1994 and one is still occasionally used for experiments per article.

Wow! Just what the 1:35 Flak Tower modeller needs!

Give Border Models a little while and we might even seen a 1/35 B-17 Flying Fortress to round it all out…wink.

Well Wade, the 128mm Flakzwilling exists (though I forget by whom), there’s the Das Werk FuSE 62 which I think was on some Flak Towers and now this - the Giant Wurzburg; I’m sure some modeller somewhere has - or will - have a go - assuming they have a spare garage to keep it in(!)

Das Werk FuSE 62 (plastic from Amusing Hobbys combo-kit, without the figures)

and for those who want to set the Amusing Hobby Flak 40 on wheels
instead of using the HobbyBoss kit

Wheels for the FuSE 62 is trickier, I’m still looking for it …

Somewhere in Arromanches-les-Bains (my summer holiday destination for this year) before 6-6-1944 (or even after that, looking at the ships):



Robin, thanks for the list, but there’s no way I’m going to tackle any of those; my Cold War stash is out of control as it is!

:wink: :grin:

Guilty as charged!
