    Does any one have any good schematics/pictures of the Krupp K5 aka Anzio Annie, out side of what is at Wikipedia. My other web searches have come up dry. Or know of any books or suggested reading?

    Thanks

    Don't worry about it -- I've done the same thing myself a couple of times!

    @JzJge....no problem, I could have been clearer

    @George Patton, thank you that site should be helpful....and I am thinking that the units on some of those drawings are MM

    I believe that's correct. Germany adopted the metric system in 1872, so any drawings made in Germany during WWII should be in units of mm or cm. I have a 1/35 scale model of a K5 on top of one of my office shelves, so if you need any specific measurements that you can't find anywhere else, let me know. They obviously won't be precise, but it's better than nothing.

    I know pretty much anything about everything is on the web, but if you are into books and can find a copy of Ian Hogg's "German artillery of World War II" it will have pictures and a good write up on it.

    I certainly hope you picked up Leopold by Jan coen Wijnstok.

    I've seen a ebook version online for free as well.
