It is always encouraging to be reminded that people actually read my ramblings. One such reader is Col of the very splendid Col's tanks blog. Noticing what some others have suggested is my 'addiction' to Solido die-casts, Col mentioned that he had a surplus M-41 SP gun. "Would I like it for my Little Cold Wars project?" He asked. An arrangement was soon made and the thing arrived from Australia a few days ago.
Here it is - a lovely model with the bonus of a firing gun! British readers may be
more familiar with the bigger and only slightly less pleasing Dinky version of the M-41.
Another view. A light coating of dust seems to have been fitted as standard to Solido models!
