Merry Christmas one and all!
Following on from my most recent 'history of Airfix' post I rounded up all of the Soviet guns which began life as unsuspecting 5.5s. The whole sorry collection is above. That's seven 122mm guns which could spoil a few Germans' days.
These two are my originals. Both have the characteristic double wheels and one has a shield. The tractors are Majorette toy bulldozers.
On tow is my third effort, pulled by a lightly modified ROCO M5 tractor. Along with the two above it is on the strength of 18 Artillery Penetration Division.
Chris Willey provided this similar creation. I'm not sure how he made the imposing tractor.
These three were built by Chris Kemp and are towed by Majorette Ford A trucks. Together with Chris W's gun they serve in the Wellingrad Artillery Division.
