Hearts of Oak - Part 3

This is the land ship HMS FEARNOUGHT.  It is a small, three wheeled steam contraption which can be landed to support Royal Navy's Armoured Landing parties ashore.

It has variable armament with either a water cooled machine gun or, as shown here, a light field gun which increases the weight of the vehicle overall. 


The model is by Ironclad Miniatures with a resin hull and turret, and white metal cast wheels and gun.
I have remodelled the back end with a stratch built funnel and support struts.

Very nice! I'd be concerned about that boiler though if up against anything but natives with spears and bows.

Splendid looking bit of armour Sir

Works for me, although I do have a longing to paint a face on the boiler!

The support struts are an inspired detail.

Excellent work, old chap!
