SCRATCH BUILD FINISHED : USMC 37mm Anti-Tank Gun/ JAPANESE Type 41 75mm Mountain Gun / Type 1 47mm Anti-Tank gun/ Type 98 20mm AA gun

Here are the completed scratch built guns for the Japanese and US Marines, based on thin metal sheet, textured the base with Milliput, painted, flocked and the gunners glued in place on their respective guns. 

I also put together a full crew with a Junior Leader for the US Marine anti tank gun, while I only put together 7 crew members and 2 Junior Leaders for the Japanese, as I can utilise guns crews from my other Japanese crews I have already put together.

Japanese 47mm Anti tank gun lies in wait for the enemy 

Completed guns with the gunners in glued in place.
US Marines waiting to be painted, most of them have  some conversion done on  them.
These figures have magnets on the bottom to secure them to the base of the gun.

37mm Anti Tank Gun
The gun is fully manned by the crew and a Junior Leader.
3 of the crew have magnets on the bottom which secure the figures to the base of the gun.
As casualties occur they can be easily removed 

Lone gunner is the remaining figure  manning the gun, once he becomes a casualty the gun is removed from the gaming table.

The Japanese crew, the 2 on the left are Junior Leaders.
A bit of conversion work was done to transform the Japanese into gun crews.

  5. Your work is just awe inspiring. The details like the rust and deterioration on the wheels of the Type 41- just magnificent.

  6. Tremendous work. I also really liked the cork with magnets on it for painting. Very clever, and extremely useful for crew figures.
