Some renovated 20mm-scale Russian World War Two light artillery

I have recently been renovating some of the lighter artillery in my Russian World War Two collection.



Four of the models represent 76.2mm M1927 regimental guns (Russian: 76-мм полковая пушка обр. 1927 г.), and were manufactured by Skytrex. The other two models represent two different versions of the French-designed, Russian-built 76.2 mm M1909 (76-09) mountain gun, one of which has been 'modernised' by the replacement of its original wooden, spoked wheels with solid, tyred wheels ... in this case from a 76.2mm M1927 regimental gun. These models were manufactured by B&B Miniatures.

      The infantry regiments will be represented by four individual figures, with three infantry. regiments, an artillery unit, an anti-tank unit, and a commander figure representing a division ... which will fit into a single A5 storage box.

      All the best,

      Bob

    4. Hi Bob,
      I cannot visualize the arrangement- perhaps a photo of the groups may all may solve a better idea of what is involved. Best Wishes. KEV.

      If you have a look at the following link (https://wargamingmiscellany.blogspot.com/2019/12/a-formation-in-box.html), it should give some idea how it looks.

      All the best,

      I should have linked to the German infantry divisions I organised using some of my renovated figures. They can be seen here = https://wargamingmiscellany.blogspot.com/2020/02/some-more-formations-in-boxes-german.html and here = https://wargamingmiscellany.blogspot.com/2020/02/even-more-formations-in-boxes-german.html .
