Started this, FH70 1/35 from Y modelle UK version.
Well done Frank; I was toying with the idea but I don’t see a Foden Limber vehicle being produced anytime soon - and I like to depict my artillery (mostly) towed. Anyway, 'be following this with interest.
Afterthought: Of course it might look sufficiently interesting being driven by the APU; hmmm.
It is going by APU, hard to take to shows spread eagle.
Thought there was a Foden 8x8, but this is the closet I can find: » 1:35th Complete Kits » K179a
Is this Stash or recent purchase?
Interested in Y-Modelle, but not willing to risk highway robbery by HMRC Ben Turpins at the PO at the moment…
I have JGSDF 155mm Howitzer FH-70 on pre-order from 1999.co.jp at the mo… might bwe a while in getting here though
Would Ben be a descendant of Dick Turpin?
Different scale but both togetherhttp://www.asam.co.uk/
A lot more detail in that one from 1999.co.jp.
Yea, the Highway Robbery D!cks want us to Ben Dover?
Jon, thanks for the thought and the AA kit might be a starter but it would take a lot of work and I really haven’t the wherewithal to tackle it in order to get the tractor, which is quite complex:
Mind you, for those who could, the combination - of gun and tractor - would be very impressive.
I bet you have Ben Dovers full collection.
Was that the 10-disc collection box produced by Phil McCrackin with a
guest appearance by the Irish duo Roy Fitzpatrick and Patrick Fitzroy?
Don’t know, just walked in barrack blocks on in most rooms ,
Accurate Armour does several variants of the Foden, not just the one above. The recovery vehicle looks to be the one that gets you the correct wheel arrangement. A little scratchbuilding and you’re there.
Very nice, what did you think of the quality of the kit?
