Twenty-One Gun Salute (give or take nineteen...)

 
More progress has been made with my Funny Little Wars Naval Brigade.  It now has some artillery – in the (rather predictable) shape of a pair of classic Britains 4.7in Naval Guns.  The crew figures are all Armies in Plastic with some limited conversion work such as carving off rifles and adding shells made from pieces cut from a bamboo skewer.

Nice natural weathering on the guns Tim.

Great stuff - and the finest of cannons!

They do look quite tatty under the unforgiving glare of the camera!

I know what you mean Paul - its nice to see 4.7s in the 'right' hands.

Very sexy kit!

What is the next FLW project you have in mind?

All the best,

Bob

Well done! Nothing like naval gunners for 4.7's. Action front!
