1930s Technical






A 1930s improvised 'technical' - or portee, as they used to call them in those far off days.

It has a medium howitzer aboard and a gunner dressed in a Germanic uniform sourced from Warlord Games' Bolt Action range. The truck is a diecast iron toy and the gun - well I don't rightly know as I got it off eBay.

Uses might include any European insurrection scenario but the Spanish Civil war and Freikorps come to mind.

  2. I've really enjoyed looking at all your AVBCW period vehicles. Very inspirational, so much so you've given me some ideas for some scratch built 10mm AFVs.

  3. Good find on that truck I have been hunting for some good 28mm scale trucks for a few months, I think I found a company, they also made some buses which I may end up using!
