Hello,

I need 28mm 105mm guns for an Indochina project (US marines uniform should do).

Is there anyone who makes them?

thank you

Both Old Glory and Warlord Bolt Action make 105mm guns

thanks DD, for OG, is it the Westwind model?

I believe the Old Glory Vietman model is the Westwind model and is no longer available from OG. I would add that the wheels on the Westwind model are extremely narrow and I needed to replace them to make a satisfactory model.

That said the gun crews from Old Glory (with flak jacket) are very good for gun crews.

The 19th century Battlehonors range has a lot of artillery. I am not sure which guns.

Good find, VCarter. Thanks.

Thanks Rudy. "19th century" is misleading :)
Found one model but I think they just have it in 15mm.

Bolt Action option:

The crew may be an issue, however, the gun looks much better than the Westwind model.

The crew for the Vietnam gun could do actually. Artillery crew were issued US flak jacket at Dien Bien Phu during the later part of the battle.

The other side of that is crewing a gun is hot work and lots of pictures from the Vietnam War I've seen show them shirtless.

I ended up buying the Vietnam set from Westwind and the European one from Warlord.

I will just base the figures on a gun base and I will switch the gun whenever I play ETO or Indochina.

thanks all for the advice.
