Rapid Fire! France 1940 in 20mm - 75mm gun towed Battalion
In 1940 the French Infantry divisions still relied in the famous - infamous for the Germans - 'soissante-quinze' (uau, he even speaks French, ladies are saying). The gun was still pulled by horses and the wheels LP were the ones of WWI. As Hat is taking an eternity to release its WWI/II artillery limber I used the Irregular Miniatures version.
The models are very nice. Irregular Miniatures uses always the same poses for the many other Useful Crew range but the distinction between the countries is well made. The French crew members are in shirt order and with their capote in Russian style, something not very common but Ok.
I took the oportunity to build the Alby Latil TAR for the 155mm GPF that you can see here
These Alby kits are expensive and take a lot of time to arrive. On the other hand they are some of the best around. Even their resin smells so good that you will want to chew it!!
Next: More French or German stuff for 1940.
