A Full Crew Aboard

 Last week I got my gunners back from Gerry. He very kindly sculpted left arms onto my infantry figures to allow me to call then gunners. I think you will agree he's done a fine job of matching Mr Stadden's sculpting style.
 So, I have raced ahead and painted a few up, just enough to crew the first of my pair of 4.7" guns.
Another crew is in preparation as I write this, so expect more pictures next week of the full battery.

I am happy to say this project feels as though it's got just the right amount of momentum. I think that the next job will be either to finish off the 11th Hussars or to paint a Fife and Drum Pontoon Wagon. Lets' see which the postman brings first.

Happy painting!

Now that's a big and most impressive gun! The gunners look good too. ;-)

Chers,

Thank-you David. I struggled a bit with the decision to paint the gun in the manner of the Britains original, but now (and with hindsight) I am glad to have done so.
