Enigma M3 Cipher Machine

Post by Gatuko on Sat Jan 17, 2015 3:13 am

Hi all

Many of you already know it, because it is a work I did some time ago and I have presented in many forums.
I wanted to have made kits, but it was very complicated to assemble and finally leave it.

1:1 scale description:
The Enigma I (or M3) was used by both the Wehrmacht (Army) and the Luftwaffe (Airforce). It was later adopted by the Kriegsmarine (German Navy) where it was commonly known as the M3 (preceeded by the M1 and the M2). The only obvious differency between the Army version and the Navy version is that the wheels of the latter have letters (A-Z) rather than numbers.

The machine is known by different names:
Wehrmacht Enigma
Heeres Enigma
Army Enigma
Service Enigma
Army/GAF Enigma
3-wheel Enigma
3-wheeler

Enigma M4 (U-Boot Enigma) was developed exclusively for the U-Boot division of the Kriegsmarine (Germany Navy). It played a vital role in the Battle of the Atlantic and was introduced completely unexpected on 2 February 1942, as the successor to the Enigma M3. It caused great upset with the allied codebreakers at Bletchley Park, who called it the Shark-key. This was the 4 Rotors model plus 5 extra rotors to make combinations.

The features of 1/6 scale version are explained in the photos. Although the images say it's a kit, is not for sale.
I spent two months in designing it and 10 full days to assemble the final version.
I hope you like:

I remember when these kits were offered for sale. They had me salivating then, as I am now. You did a magnificent kit, all of the research in of itself had to be very time consuming, let alone finding the right materials, and then transforming them into the parts for the kit that we see built. Thank you for showing them here.

Hi,

I am still to be convinced that you do not have a shrink ray, to make a 1:1 Enigma machine into a 1:6th one. As the detail is just superb.

Gary

Thanks a lot for your comments... Very Happy

Thank you Mutt71, yes, was a har work to find the right materials...

Gary.. this will be great ¡¡¡

Yes, I know Ken... a lot of people ask my for that, I will try to make in my 3D Printer, but it not easy to design and adapt some parts to print.
