Thinking ahead to the battles around Sevastopol I have started to work my way through the Strelets British Siege Artillery set. First up is a large mortar. I cut off the wheels that come with the model as most mortars would be set onto the ground. The crew are in light order, but dressed very smartly for the siege lines. The earthworks are knocked up from some cocktail sticks and a bit of sand mixed with pva glue.
