Welcome again, and thanks for checking in.
While I appreciate your willingness to hack these figures into what you have in mind, rather than the producer, I can't help wondering if you would not have been better served by the old Italaerei set, more recently by Zvezda. Quite nice, but old, and no longer that easy to find, although there's still one on eBay: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/REVELL-SOVIE ... SwETJaR7H6

Or you could do both, and have the option of displaying the gun both at rest and at work :-D

hi here are the sprue shots of the field gun and artillery crew

Image

Image

have made a start on the gun first so i can get an idea as to where and how to position the figures with the artillery

Image
the wheels were made up of 6 parts each and the tread on them doesn't look good
cheers craig

Not that I'm really one to talk after my own bout of inactivity, but you've been very quiet for a few weeks. Are you still in the game? If so, is there anything anyone here can do to help you get rolling again?

was gonna build the gun up 1st but now started to put together the figures

Image
Tis but a scratch!
Image
built up over the last 2 nights the miniart figures fit well and will only require a smear of filler and a light sand of the joints, i did play about with the limbs to see if i would be able to pose them relaxed and sat around but didn't alter them in the end ,they will be primed (when i get a can) and maybe sprayed black (for shadow) before hand painting.
cheers craig
