This weekend I finished off another artillery piece from the Perry Miniatures artillery set that I've been working my way through.
This time the gun is modelled as a 3-inch rifle.
The barrels are solid cast, but I drill out a few millimetres with a pin vice to make them look a little less flat.
On this one I even remembered to paint and add the bucket that comes on the frame, very handy if you are a gunner!
This crew is all posed as if they are re-positioning the piece to face a new target, #1 and #2 manouver the wheels while #3 hauls on the hand-spike and the #4 coordinates the efforts.
All are painted in a common uniform, a base-coat of VMC Basalt Grey for the kepi and coats and a base-coat of VMC Neutral Grey for the trousers.
I do think that doing the guns one at a time is much more easier than trying to do all three in the battery at once.
