Japanese Type 92 70mm gun Platoon

Next up in my Japanese force is the Hohei Battalion Gun Platoon with the Type 92 70mm gun.  For the Japanese, the Type 92 takes the role of 81-82mm Battalion mortars in other armies.  It looks easy to put together from the components, but there was a fair amount of filing that had to be done to put the wheels on.  You will see in the pictures that the gun tube is pointing down...try as I could, I just couldn't get a pose with the tube pointing up.  :-(

Other than that it painted nicely.
