Like this Caisson and want more of but not seeing what parts provided go together to look like other Caisson of the period.


It's the rear wheel mounting that has me questioning if it's right. Assume when cast it's done as a set but pole doesn't work out and the 3 pieces coming out back don't look correct.

I think so, it does go as it looks.
Could have been a push me- pull you if reversed Lol.
Plan to get a few, like their Troika set as well

Swapped slightly bigger rear wheels as it rides level, also not sure can be seen but put extra ammo box on rear beams.

Nice one!

I have 28mm version Hinchliffe waiting in wings- it was supposed to become an Austrian, but with a sideways shift to doing 'more enemy', I may have to reconsider…
