Empress Miniatures 3.7" mountain gun assembly.

This little beauty is another of our labours of love. Lots of bits but very easy to put together. The plan is to create a mule team  for the gun which is why the model breaks down into its exact parts ready for the mules.

I use super glue when putting these together. Please be careful and do not glue yourself to the model or get it in your eye like I did. Its very undignified trying to hold your head upside down under a tap!

I will let the pictures speak for themselves as it actually pretty straight forward.

 Told you it was easy.


  1. Nice looking model there!

    A pair of pneumatic tyres and some slight cutting back of the gun-shield and you are ready for WWII as well.

  2. It is a lovely model, but I am glad I have guide as to how to put it together. Pneumatic Tyres and a litt scalloping and you can use it up to the Indo Pak war if 1971 in the Mountain Batteries. There are a couple parked outside the Artillery Officers' Mess close to the office, but the Indian Army gets a bit jumpy if I pay them too much attention.
