6 POUNDER ANTI TANK GUN 28mm

6 pounder Anti tank Gun 28mm

Next on the Support List for the Brits is a 'Bot action" 6 pounder with 5 crew and one Senior Leader. 
The gun came with three metal crew members and again, I supplemented the crew with an additional 3 plastic conversions from the plastic British Infantry. 
I experimented a bit with the addition of a camo mesh partially covering the front of the gun.
Next paint job, 17 pounder.

Undercoated with Black enamel paint
Painting done, the firer is super glued to the base
Rest of the crew with a Junior Leader, the first and the last two guys are the plastic figures I converted.

    1. Thanks Ricky, I use magnetic sheets for bases,so I can anchor them on a sheet of metal on the base of a large plastic box for transport and storage, the following link will help: http://iagsmgm.blogspot.com.au/search/label/JUMP%20OFF%20POINTS
      I also use very thin metal posts glued onto the bases prior to the application of the putty.I do this only for large bases as the guns wheels only contact the base, unlike the base of a figure. The strengthening wire can even be straighten out staples for the humble paper stapler. hope this helps
