Mighty Grasshopper

If you are willing to spend the time required to clean and repair the castings (literally hours for 2 guns in my case) then the Hinchliffe AWI 3pdr Grasshopper can be made into a nice little model, though personally i'd recommend steering clear until the moulds are remade (which is on the cards apparently). The crew comprises 2 Hinchliffes, and an old Dixon figure that has been subjected to the indignity of a head swap.

Readers of a nervous disposition please take note that no Dixon 'pumpkin heads' will feature in this blog.
