More Summer Project Images


 Now that I have resolved, ie. (paid for) more picture space.....The Jacklex RHA gun and limber laid out and ready for assembly


 I found my son's lego briks came in handy as jigs for gluing everything up...

 ...looking good...



classic!


I decided to go with a basic block painting approach over a black undercoat (appropriate for a vintage figure).

The first coats...

...and some images of the finished gun and limber...with that all important groovy shiny overcoat!



 The figures seated on the gun are removable so I can use the gun deployed for action...as soon as I get the crew painted up!



I'll keep updating as the project progresses...I Love This Hobby!!!...Huzza!!!

What a great project! I`ve always wanted a 4.7`gun drawn by oxen and used to look at the Jacklex ads.

Check out Reviresco for some odds and bits as well. He does 1 72nd as well as 28mm

Anyway they look great.

Agreed! Very pretty figures and horse team.

Excellent result, sir! So many artillery pieces seem to move across the table with no visible means of propulsion. Good to see the vital limbers represented.
