Thanks for the link, Claude

Great news, lots of possibilities with several good Soviet artillery kits hitting the market lately

WWII variant had spoked wheels.....they need to give you the option between spoked and solid road wheels....other than that, it looks fab....

There is an old kit of the T-60 light tank that includes both spoked and solid wheels. Build it using solids and have the spoked left over. This kit was also used for a Katyusha launcher. It has been released under a number of lables, none of which I can recall at the moment.

True, those are the right wheels, but you will need two kits to cover it.

..until this thread developed ;>)
and under their assorted boxings are still around.
Now I must go log off to shop around for one more before you all beat me to them!

These are pretty rugged kits and are almost most suitable as patterns for scratchbuilding the subjects.
I too am drawing a blank on the brands & lack the motivation to go downstairs and look at the box in my stash - Eastern Express is now coming to mind. I suppose all the usual culprits have boxed those sprues.

unfortunately all the photographic evidence does not support that. Now that I said that, I expect 20 or 30 photos to appear proving me wrong.
