That is great news indeed!

Very excited about this one, as no one else has ever made a short 25lb gun in any scale to my knowledge.

Mathew

is this Ian Armstrongs work, has that quality look about it, what else is he working on for you, and will Andrew be getting a copy to do the crew for it eventually.

Speaking of the whole PNG thing do you eventually plan to get Andrew to do some Japs to go against the Australians

Yes Ians work.

I will work up a crew for it.

At this stage, Italians will be next cab off the rank.

I am also having a pile of weapons worked up to cover 2 post WWII conflicts. Large ones of which Australia was involved in both. ;)

Not too sure when it will be available, weeks rather than months. Got to just finish it off then to mould maker for submastering and production mastering, then casting, packing and then all ready!

They will be off to the mould maker shortly. I have added the gun to the site. those who pre ordered will need to do so again as the information was lost when i sold BattleScape. Apologies there. :)

That sure looks purdy :D

I have placed my order for my guns, and I modified the first page of this thread so that the link takes people to the WTM page.

Now all we need are some gunners :wink:
