US Pack Howitzer

Continuing the artillery theme and fitting in neatly with my US Paratroop forces is a pair of 75mm pack howitzers M1 from Waterloo 1815. Three hard plastic sprues are in a box each with a gun and 4 crew. The crew isn't quite correct for Paras, but they are close enough for me. The model is quite simplified, with a number of the cross supports missing, but it's a reasonably representation for the wargames table.
Now need to decide what to do with the spare as I only need two guns and apparently a British paratroop version is going to be produced, so I don't need to hold on to it for when I work on them.

Nicely done. You could build the last one as a destroyed gun or build it in travel mode.

Very interesting, thanks for the image. If you have a spare halftrack, you could use the third howitzer for an T30 SPG - it mustn't necessarily be as detailed as this one... http://www.armorama.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=SquawkBox&file=index&req=viewtopic&topic_id=173408 ;-)
