Another WW1 Holt Tractor.

Another 1st Corps Holt 15 ton Tractor, a HLBS 8 inch gun and a scratchbuilt towing limber . The crew on the tractor are a seated Woodbine gunner and a converted Perry Miniatures ACW figure carrying a "Flimsy" full of fuel. The gun has a disruptive camouflage paint scheme for hot and sandy conditions in Mespot. Film of Mesopotamia from the IWM shows a Holt like this with the divisional sign of the Indian 17th Division painted on the rear of the vehicle so the black cat rides on this model as well.

"Four Point Seven"

Finally got around to having a go at a 4.7 inch field gun. With the shorter trail and a recoil of only two feet on the recuperators these peices would "dig in" causing the shells to fall short.






Here is real one.

Czech Legion 1.

A 75mm naval gun mounted into a railway wagon. The wagon is a MDF kit from Sarissa Precission. It has been built "inside out" so the timber lines the inside of the wagon and the smooth side is on the outside to represent steel. Some added rivets go further to suggest metal sides. The gun is a scratchbuild and the figures come from Copplestone and Brigade Games. There will be more of this sort of thing to come in the future.





Here is the inspiration.

Crossley 1920s Radio Truck.

I love this "bedstead" transmitter! A simple conversion from a Matchbox vehicle. Thanks to Rodger for the inspiration!

Here is a real one.
