1/76 Morris Quad Mk II with 4.5 " Howitzer


Recommended Posts

Here is a recently completed Quad Mk II with a 4.5" Howitzer and #26 Limber. Although the Quad is listed as a Mk I/II by Milicast, it has the smaller wheels and added windows of a Mk III. The wheels were swapped for suitably altered Guy Ant wheels also from Milicast, the windows were filled in (unfortunately I realized the window problem after initial painting) and a gun platform rack was scratch built. Additional details were also added including wipers and mirrors from Dan Taylor Models, and the transfers came from the spares box (Aleran and Starmers Armour). Figures (including the driver) are from Bull Models.

The Matador Models 4.5" was detailed up and the larger solid rubber kit wheels were replaced with the later pneumatic resin ones. The #26 Limber was also detailed and the profile of the storage bins in front was corrected.

It is marked as the 72nd Field Regt - 50th Mot Inf Div as at Arras, France May 1940.
