Brief Walkround # 3 - 17 Pounder AT Gun

The photos in this 'mini-walkround' are a combination of two 17 Pounders. One of them has some severe damage on the gunshield - something to do with it being dug up! Both pieces are 'authentic' in other words they both participated in the battle of Arnhem. The state of preservation, is in general good. It has to be said though that one of the guns has a fairly odd wheelhub arrangement which looks like a ' preservation' thing. Some pieces are missing - particularly some pieces of the siting gear. These photos are for guidelines only - they are useful for modellers in that they show the 'sit' of the gun and certain details such as the rear 'spades. I hope you find them useful!
