Any small artillery piece such as this will obviously need a crew, and Airfix provide a fairly decent one with five gunners in this kit. However there the good news comes to an end because these are very much typical of early Airfix output, which is to say not good. The figures are extremely rigid, with very straight backs and formal poses as if they are posing for the King rather than on an actual battlefield. The sculpting is really poor, with very soft and vague detail and faces with very little definition. All the faces are the same, so even the man pointing does not have his mouth open! The helmets are particularly badly done, and the battledress is also poor, with none of the required pockets or other details. As so often with Airfix, these figures have a number of disfiguring mould marks on the back, and at least on our examples they also had several sink holes. We also found quite a lot of flash, although this will surely vary greatly for this very old kit. The figures are provided with separate bases, which as you see are adequate but quite small. The seated gunner has no definition between his legs, so again is in a very unrealistic, stiff pose. Two of the poses are also to be found in the set of Bren Gun Carrier & 6-pdr Anti-Tank Gun.
These are not a good example of the sculptors' art, and while they gave the gun some life and purpose, it was minimal. Perhaps better than nothing, and there are so few British gunners around, but these are definitely a last resort for many and show their age badly.
Below are examples of how the completed kit was illustrated in Airfix catalogues.
