WW1 Artillery Observation Limber Pole Ladder.

"'Ey, Frank!" shouted Battery Sgt. Humphries, "I can see our Mam's 'ouse from up 'ere!"







And here is a real one!

Outstanding, is this scratch built Mark?

Indeed it is, Michael, with the exception of the wheels which came from a GWM gun (or what was left of it) in the lead pile. In terms of scale I enlarged the photograph so that the wheels on the image were the same size as the model wheels and took measurements from that. Everything else is plasticard, brass rod, superglue and swearing. Bty. Sgt. Humphries is a Woodbine gunner. There will be a cluster of signalers and officers to place at the base of this including a Tommy on a bicycle generator powering the field telephone.... but Postie needs to deliver the figures first.
