Freya Early Warning Radar Installation
Freya Early Warning Radar Installation - STL
The Freya FuMG 39G was the first operational early warning radar defence system. Before the beginning of WWII, in 1938, eight of these units had been delivered by GEMA and deployed along the German border. The early versions had a range of 60 km which was later increased to 120 km. Azimuth accuracy was 1.5 degrees and better. These sets operated on a 1.8-2.0 meter wave length.
As a great objective to a scenario or campaign revolving around the Freya tower, here is a very interesting story about Jack Nissenthall a VC awarded hero who exposed the weaknesses in the German radar system.
This STL file is a……. It is designed for FDM Printers and print with a 0.4mm nozzle at 0.2mm layer height
Supports are not needed for this model.
The printed model measures approx.:
260mm x 168mm x 168mm @28mm Scale
We have a handy calculator for resizing files for 3D printing over at scale-converters
It is designed for 28mm table top games set in WW2 such as:
Bolt Action, Chain of Command and Konflikt ’47. It can also be used in games such as Judge Dredd, Necromunda, and Fallout Wasteland Warfare.
See the blog post notes on scales about resizing STL files.
Some of the images supplied are computer generated and are for reference. They are images of the files that will be 3D printed.
Print in place parts may need some work to loosen them up after print. Once free, run them through full travel several times to wear them in.
