105mm fH 18 - Barbette Mounting

Manufacturer: LEVA Productions (Kit #72 A 17/2)

From Stephen Brezinski

The above photo is of a companion variation to the towed howitzer version, Kit # 72-A-17/1. This is a barbette mounting for coastal and harbors defense. I understand that the 75-mm Pak 40 was used in a coast defense barbette though I do not know if it was exactly the same mount. The kit is much the same as the towed version but comes with a pedestal and concrete base with sandbags and camouflage netting molded on.
