Midway and Aleutians Remembrance...a tiny contribution

June 6, 2017 · in Armor · · 10 · 1.3K

Hi Folks: Here's a small reminder of the Aleutians campaign, inspired by a Bing Images photo of a long-abandoned Japanese Type 41 75mm mountain gun on Kiska. The kit is a 1/35th offering from Fine Molds.

  1. Bert, that is a really fine model artillery piece. Nice, intricate detail. Looks real! Well painted and done.

  2. Great little build and presentation, sir...beautifully finished.

  3. Real nice! and totally different.

  4. A nice contribution to the group build - I didn't realize it was so small until I saw the pic with your fingers under it! Nicely done in that scale.

  5. The simplicity of this model makes it so great a well composed and built kit GREAT work.

  6. I like that model a lot Bert! Great idea. 🙂

  7. The first time I saw the photo of the derelict artillery piece, I thought "how cool is this ?" ...
    Now I see the photos of your completed build and the same thought enters my mind again...
    Thanks Jim.

  8. Nice job Bert, man that gun is really small. Any issues building it?

  9. Great job Bert. Really like your choice of a very obscure subject from a mostly forgotten battlefield.
