WWI 75(?)mm gun

I continued with my little project of working on these old artillery kits. This is the LifeLike release of the what they call a WW I 75 mm. It bears little resemblance to a French or post war US 75 and looks more like, but not exactly like, a German WW I 77mm. It has elements of all those guns. Given that, and the fact that the mold was a mess with almost as much flash and mold seams as parts, with careful assembly and an interesting paint scheme, it can build up into a nice desk model. In the photos, if the wheels look a bit out of whack, some of that is camera distortion, but they were out of alignment. A little 'gentle persuasion" and they are better now.

cheveuxroux,

Don't know where you read that, but I checked photos on the interweb and yup, that's what it's modeled after. Very good info to have.

Got to add my kudos on the camo, and also how good the assembly looks considering its age and the problems you referred to.

 

Gil :cool:
