To compliment the 1/24th scale AEC Matador medium artillery gun tractor, we also offer the classic 5.5" towed howitzer, also in 1/24th scale. Features include all mechanisms in high detail, working breach, working trails with detachable ground spades.
Optional parts are provided for a choice of towed/loading/low angle firing or full elevation. Optional parts are also supplied for wartime & post war use along with optional balancing gear covers & muzzle cover. The model also offers a traversing gun cradle, complete sights, pioneer tools, real timber gun planks, hand spikes, ranging poles, drag rope, shells, loading tray, charge tubes (open & closed), bag charges, 6 ammo boxes of 3 types, & a comprehensive ammo & ammo box marking decal set. Full build instructions included.
The kit consists of 126 parts in high quality resin & white metal & around 232 in etched brass. Though that sounds a lot of etched parts, around 80 of those make up lashing loops for CES stowage, (with plenty of spares) a further 80 are buckles for the stowage straps (again with plenty of spares) & 36 are the drag rope hooks for the wheels. Full pictorial build instructions included.
