Austro-Hungarian Gun from First to Fight
Permalink   


First to Fight are working on a 1/72 kit of what they are calling " Polish howitzer 100 mm wz.14 / 19 ". From what little I can find, this seems to be the Austro-Hungarian gun that Landships is calling "10cm Feldhaubitze M.14". I can see that the 14/19 version has a longer barrel, but are there any other major (visible in 1/72 scale) differences? Could I just shorten the barrel and use this FtF model with an AH crew? Or am I completely wrong and this is a totally different gun?

Hi PDA, not claiming any expertise but I am quite sure you are right in being able to use that kit with just shortening the barrel. Probably the gunsight was different.

See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skoda_houfnice_vz_14

Is this the same gun as the Hät 10cm Austrian howitzer? I will stick with this one for the time being, unless the FTF is much better. Providing it isn't way too small like their "75" smile

Yes that seems very much to be the case:
