First World War Artillery

The Ordnance BL 15-inch Howitzer Gun was developed by the Coventry Ordnance Works late in 1914 in response to the success of its design of the 9.2-inch Howitzer. An initial order of 12 guns were made but, although highly effective, no further orders were placed  due to the sheer size and weight of the guns making them difficult to transport and emplace. The 15 inch shells were some of the largest used during the war. 3D printed in white plastic and designed in conjunction with SLR Models  .   Length: 56mm.    Diameter: 30mm

Unpainted: £1.50

Painted/Weathered/Lettered: £2.50

 

15 Inch Howitzer Shell

9.2 Inch Howitzer Shell

The Ordnance BL 9.2-inch Howitzer Gun was a heavy siege Howitzer that formed the principal counter-battery equipment of British forces in WW1 and remained in active service until the middle of WW2. The stability of the siege mounting made it the most accurate of the heavy Howitzers, with shell sizes ranging between 28 and 32 inches in length. 3D printed in white plastic and designed in conjunction with SLR Models, our shell is a model of the 28 inch variety.   Length: 35mm.    Diameter: 12mm

Unpainted: £1.00

Painted/Weathered/Lettered: £2.00
