Looks like a welcome addition to the Great War guns coming into the hobby. Thanks for bringing this one to our attention, Al.

Hi George,

Another neat looking kit, I plan the towed version as I thought it would go well with the Holt. I like the look of the new 9.2inch too. Your build is coming along well. Thanks for the heads up.

Hi Bill,

There is a good range of WW1 artillery now, so lots of choice, from the 18pdr, 6inch, 60 pdr, 8inch and now the 9.2 inch - Keeps George busy and off the streets

Cheers

Al

Al, I forgot to say....I think Christophe has been waiting for some parts (I recently revised a few items).......possible reason he has not sent his photo.....his one is in the dazzle cammo.

Hi George,

Thanks for the info. Graham forgot to put the wheels in with mine , which was why the review was published late.

Work commences and look forward to the FWD Type B.

Just been looking at my files re the MkI MkII 60 pdr......it's a bit more than "changing wheels"........need mods to carriage. So we'll see how it goes.
