Resicast have released a useful set of WW1 Artillery Accessories to compliment there excellent range of WW1 Field Guns and Howitzers.

The Set

The set comes packed in the standard small sturdy box with product and manufactures details on the top. Cast in a light grey ersin the parts are well detailed with no air bubbles or cause for concern. Inside are a range of useful items but no parts list.

You get:
  • 3 x shovels
  • 3 x crow bars
  • 3 x axes
  • 3 x large mallets/hammers
  • 3 x buckets
  • 3 x leather buckets with side cuts
  • 3 x small leather buckets
  • 2 x Ammo box medium size
  • 4 x ammo box small size
  • 2 x megaphones
  • 3 x barrel sponges
  • 2 x barrel cleaning wads
  • 2 x cross support timbers

You will have to add some plastic rod handles to the sponges and barrel cleaning wads and the small buckets come without handles.

Normal safety precautions apply when working with resin.


A useful set of accessories for both large and small calibre guns. The leather buckets are a nice addition as are the cross members to support the cleaning rods.
Highs: A set of useful items
Lows: Details of the shaft length for the sponges would have been useful
Verdict: Highly recommended

Hi Bill, a lot of info is quite scarce re the equipment used, most gun cleaning equipment is just listed without any dimensions, though there are some listings which give the length as 6 feet, others are rods that were screwed together. Rammers were different, though they often had a painted mark to show how far into the breech they should be pushed. It has been a matter of looking at period photo's and measuring with the Mk1 eyeball....not the most accurate (at my age) !
