Last year Resicast brought out some excellent detail kits of the British 6prd Anti Tank Gun, in 3 formats; kit no 35.1181 – the 6pdr Airborne Version, kit No 35.1189 - Infantry AT Gun Mk IV (late war) and most recently kit no 35.1201 - the Towed 6pdr.
The towed version was reviewed by Pat McGrath which can be viewed here
This small accessories set should be suitable for any for the above. The 6pdr anti tank gun was designed in 1938 but due to equipment losses in France production and issue was delayed until 1942. It was used from then on in all theatres of war until wars end in 1945.
Packaged in the standard Resicast format and contained within 2 sealed zip plastic bags, this is a simple set of 10 boxes. A cover sheet outlining the product and with a sample picture of the unpainted boxes is also included in the zip bag. The set consists of 5 closed ammo boxes and 5 open ammo boxes with lids. Cast in a light cream resin the detail on the boxes is excellent and I could find no sign of air bubbles or blemishes on any of the castings. Resicast have developed a casting process that allows very thin detailed casting and these look very good indeed.
Pictures of 6pdr ammo boxes proved very difficult to find but from the few examples I could reference these look to be very accurate, with the handles and catches portrayed in the correct location and even the odd wavy lines in evidence on both sides of the boxes.
A sharp razor saw and X-acto blade is all that should be required to remove the pour stubs plus a file/board to smooth the bases. Normal precautions when using resin should be observed.
A simple set of dio accessories that should add a sense of action to any dio containing a 6pdr, or be very useable as general ammo stowage or litter. I can not tell you if these could be used with the Churchill, but I suspect they could.
A very useful accessory set for both Allied and Axis modellers. Being early pattern boxes should not exclude their use in late war situations, as the 6pdr was the standard anti tank weapon at Battalion level and used until wars end.
