CSA Artillery

    The last project I'm working on at the moment.

    CSA Artillery officer with a captured Union gun.

    I plan to use a bunch of Union equipment and ammunition laying around the gun. Would also include a Union kepi, or even a Union artillery shell jacket laying on the ground to give the gun its identity.

    My grateful thanks go to Loren Johnson (johnsonva), who supplied me with a lot of information for the gun: pictures, drawing scans, etc.
    Loren gave me also a suggested title for the display "The Spoils of War".

    All comments and critics welcome.
    Suggestions for the groundwork and disposal too.

    Best regards

    Bertrand, Very nice to see you make the effort to "correct" the kit. A forage cap on the ground would look good. I would put artillery equipments on the ground or leaning against the gun. I would not fill your scene with too many pieces of equipment as it may make your scene too cluttered.~Gary

    I agree with Gary......good to see you correct the kit. I look forward to seeing this develope.

    Nice work on the gun. We have some 12 lb case/solid shot from our CW1 kit that would look good on the ground as well as kepi's, canteens etc. Email me and tell me what you are looking for. USMCMKS@aol.com I also have all the parts from our artillery kits that may be of help to you in detailing your kit.

    Hello Mike,

    I will contact you when I come back home after some vacation ... Kepis, canteens, forage caps, some 12 lb case/solid shots from your product line will certainly fit. Just have to make my mind more clearly on how to display them.

    Stephen: The gun is 120mm from Verlinden. Mys sources are mainly from a pF member who provided me with a lot of information, pictures, drawings, measurements from an actual gun. Very helpful.
