Review of the Emhar kit
I really like the Emhar kit of this gun and in general I have a fondness for this piece of artillery partly because of a story about my Grandfather. One of these guns was going to be a War Memorial in Radstock and locals objected, considering it bad taste, letters were written to the local paper all to no avail so my Grandfather and a few of his veteran mates, one who had a pick up truck dismantled it in the dead of night and then hung the pieces from trees lining the road to the local landowner's mansion. Everybody in the village knew who did it but noone told and it was never reassembled.
