This huge artillery gun was introduced after the loss of most of the Royal Artillery weapons in France during 1940, and combined a lined down 8” barrel on the old 8” Howitzer carriage. The marks 1-4 depend on the original carriage utilised for the conversion. The gun was first used in North Africa, and Italy and finally in N.W.Europe after D-Day.The weapon fired 200lb (91kg) HE shells up to 16,900 yards (15,505m), and as the complete gun weighed in excess of 10 tons, the standard towing vehicle was the huge Scammell R100 6x4 Heavy Artillery tractor (See our kit K102).
This all resin model comes complete with sights, transport covers, Quoins (Ramps), loading tray and a small selection of ammunition and packaging (further ammunition is available as our set A057). The master model was designed by Leon Hassing and Rob Tearle, and ammunition /packaging details courtesy of Ordnance Archive.
