French Drawings


Following discussion here: AFV Modeller :: Trumpeter Tiger 2 :: A build & info resource!, Liejon wanted to post these images, but had lack of space for them.

Our French friend Jean-charles Breucque confirmed that these drawings are declassified.
The source seems to have been a French archive site. So far we have not been able to find it. So it seems like the original files are no longer available for download.

I received the drawings in JPEG format, but decided to convert them to a standard TIF format which is much smaller in size, delivering the same quality.
Click on the drawing should open the corresponding TIF file. Should you have troubles opening it, Try clicking on the JPEG text, which opens the much larger (Not better) JPG file. In case of any trouble or questions please contact me here: rob (remove this and join) (at) panzerbasics (dot) com.

Our French friend Jean-charles Breucque has added some more drawings from his collection:

Muzzle-Brake-Late, parts combined and made to scale by fitting them to known dimensions by me.

Jean-Charles has provided better quality scans resulting in this new combined drawing.

TIF original 1
TIF original 2
TIF original 3
TIF original 4

Please note that the right drawing consists only of the original scans combined.
The left drawing originals were warped due to photography and has thus been made to fit to dimensions measured by me.
So, whilst looking similar at first glimpse, there is some difference between them.

 

Here are dimensions in mm used on the left drawing, followed by measured ones on the right drawing behind the /:
- MB length with gasket and ring: 493 / 500.6
- MB only length: 440 / 445.2
- Ring length: 51 / 53.3
- Max diameter: 232 / 230.8
- Height of the left blast hole: 120 / 119.3
- Diameter at left blast hole: 205 / 205.2

HL230-P30: WARNING! file size 5MB!
Here a French copy of an original German drawing. Note that it has been puzzled together from small files and two small sections in the left and right middle are missing. Due to the large file size, I only present the JPEG version of this file.
