Well done. Thanks for the review. Now I finally have some ammo to go in my IDF M9 with 6 pdr. Even if we don't get a new kit any time soon, let's not forget that Zvezda (I'm certain the molds come from someone else) makes a kit in plastic as well.

That really is a full set. From the AA blurb it aseems you can use the cases in a tank loading dio as well.

Hi Pat,

Yes, I would imagine with a 6pdr Churchill or Cromwell the cases would be fine. They are the later pattern, I'm not sure at which point the change in style occured. However, if you needed early style Resicast do a nice set of cases but without decals.

They also do a set of 6pdr ammo (late) too for their gun but I haven't gotten to reviewing it yet. So there is good choice out there. These are cool though, Derek makes some cracking ammo sest for his guns.

Allan,
Thanks for the review. It sounds and looks like a comprehensive supply of ammo a 6pdr and I like the inclusion of the decal sheet. I wish other manufactures would do the same
