Are there any out there? It's a French weapon but it was also used by the United States. In addition, it was used as a sub for the25mm ATG and the 37mm ATG by France and the US, respectively, during World War Two. I'm really wanting some with US crews but I guess I can do head swaps with a French crew.

Are there any out there? I've looked and looked but haven't seen any.

Also, if there aren't any out there is there any interest in asking Eureka to make them?

There was a discussion about this not so long ago. TMP link

The Japanese also used a very similar weapon.

Nobody makes one at the moment that I know of, but it's on Blue Moon's master "to-do" list:

LOL! I guess its a yearly tradition for me then to post and ask about this weapon! I totally forgot about this thread but I would hardly call it recent… but then again, most of us on TMP would qualify as being "old farts", so a year to us must be fairly recent.

I'll check into OFM's post to see if those miniatures ever came out.

Well, its been a year anyway, anything new?

really useful gun range, a sort of inbetween 15 and 20mm range.

Gun 35, Japanese type 11 infantry gun 1922 – 1945.

A Japanese copy. No wheels or sheild, so looking just like the wepon emplaced in yoru picture.

As previously discussed. Not in 15mm. And not likely to be in 15mm.

You know Allen, for someone who has never purchased any of the Blue Moon stuff, you seem to know every thing about the WWI line.

At Cold Wars, Little Wars, and Historicon this year, we had no problem selling the Blue Moon WWI line to people that own Peter Pig and other Lines in 15mm. One individual at Little Wars, who owns Peter Pig WWI and the Minifig lines, comment that tanks, guns (as I had masters to show him) and other equipment pieces (again showing production masters) matched perfectly with the Peter Pig stuff. He has been buying a lot the Blue Moon to use for both WWI and Spanish Civil War, as he runs a lot of those types of games at two of the game stores in Mpls/St.Paul, as well as local mini conventions and Little Wars.

I can accept no responsibility for anyone else's limitations in perception.

"…someone who has never purchased any of the Blue Moon stuff…"

How would you know? A number of retailers and eBay sellers carry the WWI range.

Tgunner, there WAS a Eureka request once upon a time but it seems to have disappeared.

Yeah, not enough interest in it I guess. There is also a M1919 MG team up there too for the early war USMC (wearing doughboy helmets). Maybe there's interest in that? If so then maybe Eureka might bring back the M1916 37mm too.

Those would be nice pieces of kit to have for my early Pacific War Americans.
