Next stretch goal:AA-trucks

We are five days from the end of the Winter War kickstarter and just £2000 away from the goal I have been most looking forward to, the truck with AA gun. For those who do not know, this is what it looks like.


And as you can tell from the pictures, we need a bunch of them!



These pictures are from the book "Striderna i Suomussalmi" (The fighting at Suomussalmi), written by Hjalmar Siilasvou who commanded the Finnish forces during the battle. It is published by Mendéns in Stockholm and printed in Helsinki in 1940. If anyone holds the rights to these pictures, let me know and I'll remove them.

And finally, the man himself, Hjalmar Siilasvou.

  1. What is that AA gun? Just a bunch of Maxim MMGs grouped together?

    1. And to be made by the Waffenkammer crew, that is better than I could have hoped for.
