ArsenalM makes very high quality resin and mixed media HO 1/87th scale military vehicle kits.
The kits are made in Germany and frequently contain photo etched brass and even aluminum gun barrels.
Recently I purchased a 170mm and 210mm WWII German artillery guns. They were common weapons used all during World War Two as very heavy artillery.
The 170mm guns were in batteries of three or four guns and battalions of two batteries. The 210mm guns were in batteries of two guns and battalions of two batteries. They were often attached at corps level units.
