1/72 First to Fight 10.5cm LeFH 18 Field Gun DAK.

Postby jaydee » Thu Aug 18, 2016 8:55 pm

Got this kit from Poland,cost about a fiver. Built without too much fuss the only part I had to modify was the gun cradle. I used parts from the spares box in this case the schurzen rail from a Revell kit and I placed the spades fixed in the travel position.

The kit is well detailed for the price and the barrel is a one piece moulding with a hollow muzzle. Very good for what is a wargaming kit. The only niggle I have is that the instructions are a bit on the vague side and required a bit of googling to see where everything was meant to be. Paintwise I used Tamiya Olive Green as a base and then Model Master enamel Afrika Braun. Revell Anthracite for the tyres and drybrushed with same and Vallejo Iraqi Sand. I tried AK True Metal for the breech and cradle and I am impressed with the stuff. The only problem was that when I unscrewed the top it spewed a fair bit of it out, both wasteful and messy.
