Good Day All,

I was considering petitioning a producer of fairly priced Russian Handmade Military models in 1/87 scale to produce some interesting Artillery models that havent been around for some time. If there is enough interest he will likely make them, and if you guys can email me at Richbasas@hotmail.com I can take a count and likely convince him to make a batch of these kits. I think he makes batches of 30 or 15 each time, but only does those that will sell or are of great interest or use similar parts to other moulds. I believe they are all part of the exhibit grounds for the St Petersburg Artillery Museum, and would be great subjects of interest. I may also pass interest in the list to makers of resin kits of the same items in 1/87 or 1/72, not pre-built but to make them as kits. You info. will be kept confidential unless you wish to purchase the model, in that case I can put you in touch with the model maker. The short list is below with links to photos of the artillery system:

-2S19 MSTA
http://warfare.ru/?lang=&catid=240&linkid=1562
-2S7 Pion
http://warfare.ru/?lang=&catid=240&linkid=1564
-2S5 Gigant
http://warfare.ru/?lang=&catid=240&linkid=1567
-2S4 Tulypan
http://warfare.ru/?lang=&catid=240&linkid=1568
-SA-11 Gadfly/BUK-M1
http://warfare.ru/?lang=&catid=264&linkid=1690
-SA-15 Gauntlet/TOR-M1
http://warfare.ru/?lang=&catid=264&linkid=1691

All the links above have photos and information on the systems. As well, if anyone can recommend another forum or site or group that might also have interested people in those items above, please email me and we can discuss it.

This subjects have been chosen due to their importance on the modern battlefield, their presence at Russia's main Artillery museum and the high demand for the subject and rarity of Russian Handmade Models in general.
Thank you to all those you are interested in Soviet/Russian and Warsaw Pact Armour....please email me at Richbasas@hotmail.com with your thoughts and suggestions..

Cheers and Speciba,
Rich in Canada

I would be nice to see what the kit looks like and a price range.

Something like the Gadfly would be pricey in resin. Gran makes one similar, thought the NATO name

excapes me, for $59.00 and that's in plastic.

I am well aware of the AER kit thank you. It is a nightmare to build! The worst resin kit I've ever seen. If it was good I wouldn't be asking anyone to make a kit of the howitzer, of course!

Yes, there is the S-125(SA-3 Goa) on a T-55, and I am hoping they will do the same with the SA-2 on a T-55. There was a 2006 announcement that the SA-11 might be produced, but to no avail. There is some word of the SA-11 being done by MW models, but I wont give my hopes up. I wish that the Russian artillery systems of the 2S19 MSTA, 2S4 Tulpan, 2S5 Gigant and 2S7 Pion be made as they either dont exist or do not exist where most people can get a model of one. SA-15 as well, no one ever made a model of this important piece of artillery.

So Rich, we have some interest in the B-4 howitzer here. Are you forwarding that interest? I would buy several should any be built and I really think there is a market for it.
