Cheers. Yes it's the Westwind version, is there a better sized one out there?

Just remembered , I swapped the wheels for some a bit chunkier.

Warlord do one in 1/56 and it’s actually quite a decent model. Quarter Kit do one in 1/48 if you want something bigger.

I’m currently converting a Warlord 75mm pack howitzer into an M98 Howtar a USMC only mating of the 4.2” mortar to the pack howitzer carriage. Hoping Empress will do some generic gun crew at some point.

I nearly bought one of those, then found the Westwind model via an image search. Shame the gun is so small, the crew are Ok heightwise. With hindsight should have got the Warlord...

Also found this whilst in random search mode, from WarBases.

I found a Buddha statue and a Chinese Pagoda in a pet shop as aquarium decorations. They also had a large Angkor Wat style temple.

Check Ainsty as they sell a suitable Bhudda.

I'd like to have a go at something fairly 'up the Nung river' looks wise.


Check Ainsty as they sell a suitable Bhudda.

I think it's the same model, there are a couple of 'temple dog' statues in the same range that could be useful.

Made a little base for it

These are the Angkor Wat aquarium decorations that I looked at.
I am sure you can find something similar in the UK, probably much cheaper too.

Thanks guys, much appreciated.

I haven't attached the statue piece to the base, so it can be just another bit of jungle.

Lovely work Ash.
