Todays release is something of a massive project.

For the 28mm World War One range we have created a complete 4.5" howitzer from the actual gun to both limbers and the full horse team with of course crew.

This gun came into service 1910 and served throughout WW1 , the Interwar period and into WW2. We will be doing versions for both the Jazz Age range and the late 1930's early 1940's mechanised range.

Obviously you do not need many of these in your army, although we do recommend 10 or 12 🧐😂

BEF14 FIELD GUN.
BEF15 GUN CREW.
BEF16 BOTH LIMBERS.
BEF17 6 HORSE TEAM.
BEF18 7 MAN LIMBER CREW.
BEF19 HOWITZER AND CREW.
BEF20 THE FULL MONTY. This is the complete set with a special deal price.

Other guns are just going through the various production phases.

That is very, very pretty - absolutely no need for it but I do fancy slapping paint on one sometime  o_o

Wow  :-*

I remember the Airfix one. That always seemed a bit of an esoteric oddity amongst the rest of their HO/OO plastic soldier sets.

(Not so in your case, obvs  :D)

Very nice indeed  :-*

My only issue is that both Foundry and GWM do Early War BEF limbers but no one does a Late War one (I don’t like doing head swaps). In addition German and Russian limbers are also much needed.

Not only pretty but highly useful. Widespread use over a long period. Looking forward to the Martin Parry version.

Airfix did a 4.5” howitzer? Don’t recall that at least not in their OO/HO range. Only gun I am aware of was the RHA 13 pounder and team.

Best wishes,

Let’s hope they can expand it to 1917 and beyond.

Oh, was it a 13 pounder and not a 4.5” howitzer? Gosh. I’m sorry. What an inexcusable faux pas... ::)

I meant, as I’m sure you understood, that Airfix produced a full WW1 RHA six horse team, limber, gun and crew. Similar right?  And you know, just a passing observation. But nitpick away if it makes you happy ;)

funny, I had the same reaction.. we must belong to the same generation...

There you go, you see... :)

Glad you like it Guys and Gals. :-*

This was very much a group effort which is why it took so long. However there are a number of others also going through the pipeline including the 18pdr and of course the 13pdr which will of course be a subtle homage to the Airfix pack some of us grew up with.  ;)
