Having trouble finding a limber for the British 18 pounder from WWI
I was given the gun kit itself as a gift, but would like to find the correct limber. I've been told "Tommy's War" has one but I'd like to find one in the US. While Resicast has the set, apparently they don't sell the limber separately.
Thanks

I'm pretty sure the Tommy's War line is 1/32, not 1/35 like Resicast, so that may be a false road to follow.

Correct.

Have you tried e-mailing Resicast direct to see if they will sell you just a limber?

The kit is by Scale Link so I believe it is 54mm (1/32)
I know they offer a matching limber but to tell the truth, I can't figure out how to purchase it on-line and I don't think there is a US distributor any longer.
The website is almost medieval.

You just have to add to chart then choose my payment and shipping method like all sites, the quality as the site is a bit old school but with a little work out well, then they have very difficult to find subjects

Have you checked this page:
http://www.scalelink.co.uk/acatalog/Vehicles___Artillery.html
I think the limber is the very last item on the page, limber for 13 and 18 lb guns.

E-mail them first for shipping costs, it seems their shopping cart function only knows about domestic (i.e. UK) shipping.
Contact form is here:

Medieval is possibly a slight exaggeration, previous millenium is certainly true
