Ww1 Hotchkiss 3 lb qf high angle mount gun
« on: January 18, 2019, 03:39:15 AM »

 :-) Anyone any ideas where dimensional details or general details might be found.
I have a single rather poor photo.
Thanks

Pages 203 - 205 of Allied Coastal Forces of World War 2 by John Lambert and Al Ross (Conway Press) has drawings of the 3Pdr but I'm not sure which mount you're referring to.

Hi Rayna,


Do you mean the Hotchkiss one or the later 3pounder QF? Also, what scale are you after as I designed and cast one in 1:96th/1:110th scale last year and can get you some castings. I would need a little money for metal and spin time but I am not currently looking for profit.
