Thanks, Al, for the review. Resiicast's products are always well thought-out, and there can be no doubt we need more Great War big guns.

Hi Bill,

Thanks for looking in. I'm close to finishing the 60pdr which was fun and Resicast are near to marketing the towed version of the 9.2 inch.



I was talking to Graham and George when I was down at Duxford and there are some interesting things yet to come.

Cheers

Al

That's good news. Nothing is more iconic for the war than films of these monsters spewing their death and destruction. The older I have gotten, the more admiration I have for the lads on both sides who suffered these artillery bombardments. When I toured Ft. Douamont outside Verdun, it was easy to believe men went mad inside during the shelling.
