Suggestion s for new Kompact kits

Post by John M. Lyle » Wed Nov 12, 2014 3:49 pm

I am enjoying assembling my 25 pdr gun and limber. It got me to thinking about other topics for Kompact kits. I for one would love to see a naval 4" gun of the type found on the early flower class corvettes or the 2pdr pom pom anti aircraft gun also found on Flower class corvettes even the 20 mm Orlekon gun would be a good topic. I know that Armortek is mainly tanks but I can wish.

Anyone else have a wish list for future Kompact kit subjects?

……..A BRITISH MORRIS QUAD 4 X 4 GUN TRACTOR….of course to pull the Kompact 25 pdr and Limber kits.

As a 25pdr, and hopefully soon to be a limber owner, I would agree that the Morris Quad gun tractor would be a very popular choice :D

Regards

I think the Morris quad would be a full kit as opposed to a Kompact kit. Kompact kits I can afford the full kits like the tanks and half tracks are beyond my budget. That is why I suggested the 4" gun, the 2pdr pom pom gun and the 20 mm Orlekon. These would be kits that cost less than 800 GBP.

I to want to see a gun tractor. My first choice would be the CMP Chevrolet gun tractor, second choice would be the Canadian Ford F.G.T. gun tractor. However maybe the Morris would be the least expensive choice.

Good evening John,

I see what you mean with regards the Kompact Kits against the expense of the full kits. I also have to cut my teeth on the less expensive kits, which is a great way to be able to experience these fantastic kits and become a member of the Armortek forum where people are very happy to help you at every level.

Regards

Dave

Hi fellas.

Not done a 25 pounder myself as yet but I can see how something to pull would be a great choice and I am sure you will get your wishes perhaps ... however as for another gun for me the German pack 43 now there's a gun. :D

I would love to see a 251 as an Armortek Kit.

Evening Gents,

How about a Bofors 40mm QF as a stable mate for the 25 pounder? :)

How about a 13 pounder or 18 pounder and limbers to compliment the WW1 MkIV? I'd then like to see Mark tooling up for the horse team :D , would they be Kompact or Amortek? Serious about the guns though.
