Ordnance QF 2 pounder Gun in Caunter Scheme?

Recommended Posts

(I guess this is as good of a choice for "first post" as any other idea I might have had...)

 

Greetings all,

 

I had thought I remembered seeing an article years ago where someone had built the Sovereign 2000 2-pounder gun in a Caunter scheme pattern. But I went through my database of references, and I only have one article of someone doing that kit; Steve Zaloga built it in a 2002 Military Modelling issue. And, alas, he did his in a straightforward desert tan scheme.

 

Did I just imagine having seen this at all? None of my Google-fu has been able to turn up any photos of the gun in that scheme. I'd love to do it, for something kind of different than my usually artillery projects. But I prefer to feel at least a little certain that it's legitimate!

 

Thanks in advance for any help/advice...

 

-Randy

There is photo evidence that at least one sported that scheme:

The fact that it is being utilized in the portee fashion (as opposed to a static deployment) might be the reason it had the Caunter scheme applied.  Nevertheless, it is a rare find.

Jack

Thanks for that! It turns out that my database DOES have a second entry in it for a magazine article about the Sovereign 2-pounder. Only it turns out to be a magazine that I got rid of some years back >_<. At least I now know what my second post here will be...
