JayBee:
Come on world, we need this in 1/72scale, and Israeli markings !
 :wacko:

Old Wombat:
Both builds are looking good, BT! :thumbsup:

I'm thinking you bought it because it was such a cool, different subject ... Same reason I bought a Conqueror, which came out at pretty much the same time. :mellow:

Israeli markings are eminently doable in 1/35! ;D ;)

There was a 7.2"  gun in use during WWII by the Royal Artillery. The first marks were relined 8" gun barrels, but the latter marks were new builds. Was only used for a couple of years. Not sure if the barrels were considered for this or not, but there was experience with the calibre.

There was also a naval gun used in some RN Washington Treaty cruisers.

Really nice build  :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Yes, Gunner/Lance-Bombardier/Gunner Terence "Spike" Milligan served in a 7.2" battery. ;)
