More British desert artillery

The first kits of my PSC kickstarter have been finished. From front to back, these are a replacement 25pdr battery (two guns, quads & limbers) to replace my old Airfix battery; a pair of 17pdr "Pheasants" and a battery of 18/25pdrs for the early desert war.


Both the pheasants and 18/25pdrs are made up from from the kit left-overs, The wheels were, I think, from an old RAF emergency set. I widened the axles on the pheasants to made them look better and this made them fit on the Airfix traversing circle.

The open roofs gave a little problems as the fit was not too good and the inside needed to be paired down as there were locating tabs on both them and the sides. Some spare seats were added inside so it didn't look like an empty box.

Nice work Will but keep the old Airfix ones for old times sake.

The proportions of the gun crews look better than the German ones, Will.

Regards, Chris.
