Mortar Cycle

Yes I mean a mortar cycle.

Anyone have any idea who made it and if it worked? Or is it a photoshop effort?

Someone, I think Shellhole Scenics, does both moving and firing versions in 20mm. I have a model of the firing version, which turned up in a box of surplus goodies received in the mail from another wargamer.

Thanks, David, but I'm not thinking of adding them to a Russian Force that has lain dormant for 25 years. Mind you - maybe if I see one at a show?

I think this or similar photo is in one of (my copies of) Steven Zaloga books on Red army of USSR?
But I also have many of David M. Glantz books on Red Army so I could be mistaken!!
