Battleground KDF kit has bumpers and a video

Post by grunt1 » Thu May 23, 2019 3:08 pm

Hi guys,

Thank you for your support for so many years. I finally decided to open the Battleground website store. There is a discount code for 15% off called launch15. We also added several new items.

Anyway, thank you for the support and I hope you find something that you would enjoy adding to your 1:18 or 1:16 collection.

If you have any issues, send me a PM here.

Feel free to share this with any other boards or friends that might be interested, every little bit of interest helps us create new items.

Thanks!

Pat

Hi Pat been checking out the site, you've got some cool items for
sale at great prices. Adding details to vehicles or dioramas is now easier
with these offerings. Nice job!

I recently purchased some accessory parts and some artillery pieces from Grunt1/Battleground Toys and they are fantastic! It’s nice to not have to sand off flash and fill holes with putty on the 3D printed items 8)

just received my M-3 U.S. 37mm anti-tank gun and M-1 81mm mortar. Both excellently rendered and very reasonably priced. I plan on converting a M-16 quad fifty half track to an M21 mortar carrier. Pat any thought of converting the M-3 gun to the one mounted on the back or the dodge weapons carrier ie. M-6 tank destroyer, used by the U.S. in North Africa and by the Free French troops throughout the war. There is a 1-18 scale weapons carrier out there. Thanks again for the excellent items.

Hi Joey,

Yes. I did the CAD for the M6 Fargo 37mm a while back but wasn't every able to find definitive photos that showed how the gun mounted to the pedestal so I put it on pause.

I've since gotten some new books that might do the trick. I'd like to finish this up and get it out there so thank you for the compliments and the prompt!

Joey2putt,
We recently saw a halftrack mortar carrier at a military event. I can email you pics of it, if you need it. Email me: wave17019@gmail.com

Hey guys,

Yes. I made a video showing how to put it all together:

I also made the Banana bumpers (thanks Slade!). They are $8 for anyone that already purchased the original kit and will be part of the standard kit going forward with a slight price increase to cover the added cost.

Pat,

I really need to get your address, and am not sure the pm is working right.
