Greetings from the centre of France.

Now these look rather splendid!

I'm returning to 20mm WW2 and although I have many of the old Esci 25 pounders I really like these for variety and the excellent range of options e.g. BEF.

Thanks for sharing.

Cheers,

Paul

No sign of mine from the Kickstarter yet!

Still waiting for mine too, but I see one obvious 'goof' already: there is an extra layer's seat where no seat should be! There also appears to be a large rectangular counterweight cast into the barrel molding near the breech: this was added in 1943 to balance the weight of the muzzle brake so will also need to be removed for the versions used in North Africa. Unlike the extraneous set, this could be something of a bear to do neatly.

but I see one obvious 'goof' already:…

There has also been a bit of criticism of the shape of the Quad, especially the front grill and bonnet.

And I pointed out a while back that the so-called 18/25 BEF gun can't be right as the carriage would be unique to that version:

Also a pity that the same vehicle number is repeated 10 times on the decals.
