Almost finished putting together the Parts pages for the 25pdr.
Limber pages are already done..
Instruction pages for both are done.

Next, I have to print and proofread everything again.
And then take some photos.

oh, and put together a cover page.

...
speaking of photos:

25pdr Reference Photo Sets / MkII 25 Pounder Artillery | airdaves-photos
Limber Reference Photo Sets / No.27 Artillery Trailer/Limber | airdaves-photos

This is an unique trilogy of armor masterpieces with lots of detail and plenty to keep a builder busy for quite some time.
It was one of the most enjoyable projects to watch during this past year.

It is a magnificent model, and the instructions are a work of art!

One more contribution to your helping to preserve military history in paper.

Many thanks,

Don

Redlegs are artillery soldiers because red was the color assigned to artillery for use on uniform facings (Why Do They Call Us Redlegs). It is a purely U.S. Army expression. Something like "Redcaps" for British military police.
