1/35 BL 8-inch Howitzer Mk.IV. Roden 813
This is an injection-plastic military vehicle model kit.
The BL 8-inch howitzer Mk VI was a heavy gun used during the First World War, produced in 1915 at the Vickers plant. In addition to the UK, it was manufactured in the USA under license by the Middle Steel and Ordnance Co. at Nicetown, Pennsylvania. This type of cannon was used on every major front of the First World War; some were transferred to allies such as Csarist Russia. After WWI, the Mark VI was declared obsolete in Great Britain, which converted to other types with a new caliber standard, and in 1939 some of the American guns, after the Soviet Union's aggression against Finland, were transferred to the armed forces of that country, where they remained in combat service until the end of the 1960s.
