I completed one more Improvised Armoured Vehicle for The Great Antipodean Adventure games, a Crossley Artillery Truck. This will be the last of these for a while turning my attention to some VSF, WW II PTO and ACW projects that I have on the go and still need work…

Members of the Revolutionary Guard Naval Battalion inspect their new Mobile Artillery Vehicle at the Sydney Naval Dockyard Warehouses.
Notice the second vehicle in the background that was required to carry the six-man crew and ammunition as the Crossley was overloaded by the gun platform itself! The vehicles gunners discarded their whites for fatigue kit and donned black caps of the revolution!

Another Crossley from the Model of Yesteryear range was the basis for this conversion. The tray load was unclipped and two rear platforms were made from 1mm sheet styrene one with armoured sides up the other with them deployed. Then a single turret was built from the same 1mm plastic and bits and pieces from the spare parts box were used to create the mounting and the 3-pounder gun.
