This looks like a very nice piece for a diorama. There are a few photos of the triple mount on land but something like the box art would also make a great action scene. It needs figures.

Wow-- Great subject! I agree with Russ though, we need some gunners for this beast. I also agree about the land based diorama aspect-- in fact, the photo Pit Road has used in the intro looks like it is a land based gun! Now why can't we get a mainstream manufacturer to do some U.S. or British type shipboard AA Weapons?

Russ, Back in the 1990s when Pit-Road released the metal versions of their single and triple 25mm kits, they also issued resin figures to go with them.

Let's hope they re-release them to go with the new guns!
