For 6pdr fans there is another airborne version on the way, this time from AFV Club.
Yes, AFV Club, has announced an Ordnance QF 6-pdr Mk.IV that will include the Mk.III chassis. This will add to the already release 6-pdr’s, but give modellers a great choice. The box art is interesting showing an American crew unloading it.

The more the merrier and having all three of the currently available new guns the AFV seems the easiest to assemble but looking at this one I feel they may not understand the subject all that well. I can't recall seeing spaced armour on the AB guns and the shield was reduced in height and width as was the carriage to fit the load criteria for gliders. I am very happy to be proved wrong here but this looks like their standard Mk IV with two new folding trails. The conversion was a little more than that. Al

For some rason I could not edit my post so will add more info here. From looking online I can see where the problem may lay. The museum exhibit at Duxford is a standard Mk IV (late) 6 pdr which even has standard trails. THese photos of the real guns in period photos should give a really good indication:

Hi Al, Agree, shorter wheel base and no double skin armour plate. The gun was in service until 1951, I don't know is the post war guns just became the standard gun with the demise of the glider and newer larger transport planes? Al

Apparently some of the late guns had double skin armour like the museum one above but I have yet to see a pic of one in use, possibly these were post war models

Great, more the merrier....hopefully this is an easier build than the Bronco kit. Sorry but the the little 'tiny bits' are painfull, would prefer the breach block to be a one piece!!!!! Don't get me wrong.....thank you to the manufacturers bringing out these guns.

The 80th Airborne Antiaircraft Artillery Battalion in Holland used the 6 pounder with the spaced shield. Scroll down to the see two different photos, one on each site. LINK LINK Best wishes, Grant
