Title: Bofor Gun details
Post by: Bill Slater on November 10, 2009, 09:51:11 AM
Hi! Modeler's,
Can anyone help me, I served on a Minesweeper HMS Maxton back in 1958/9 and she was fitted with a Mk V111 (8) Bofor Gun which was battery operated.
I am looking for details that will enable me to make a model gun to fit my 4Ft. Model of her, most of the boats were fitted with the Mk.V11(7) and there is plenty of details for that mark of gun, but I am getting desperate for info I have tried all the sources I know of and have drawn a blank.

We did this a while back and as you say there is plenty on the MkV11 but not the MkV111.
