Joining the Midway Group Build, I thought a ground subject might offer something different. Given my glacial building speed, a newer release (2013) and low parts count (38 for the gun) would stand a better chance of completion by June. It’ll be OOB. First look, the parts are highly detailed and flash-free. I’d thought of building an IJN destroyer, but the parts count and my nil ship building experience ended that dream.
Looking around for a subject, I found the image of a long-abandoned IJA Type 41 75 mm mountain gun on Bing Images, and I had this Fine Molds Imperial Japanese Army Artillery Type 41 75 mm Mountain Gun (No. FM 38) kit in my stash. So, I’ll share photos as the build progresses.
Cocoa the Wonder Dog will be my build partner, always effective in not finding parts I drop.
I’d like to credit Bing Images (pacificparatrooper.wordpress.com, ww3.plala.or.jp/takihome/41-75.htm, and Yasukuni Shrine) for the photos.
