That would be astonishing if it was OOB. Considering that it is, for all intents and purposes, scratch built is simply mind-boggling. Congratulations on an exceptional build!

I'm going to go toss out all my tools now and take up basket weaving....

Hold on, the gun goes up and down, and the whole thing rotates on a section of turntable??

Mark, see you at the basket weaving website.

I like the big contrast between the base foliage colours and the grey of the structure.

Excellent and inspiring work! Also curious as to the figures as I've been looking around for 1/72 artillery crew. Are these Preiser? Cheers
