15mm British WWII Type 28A Gun Emplacement Information

Pillboxes are concrete guard posts designed to protect the defenders from enemy bullets while allowing them to fire out through embrasures in the walls. 

The type 28A is the largest of the directorate of Fortifications and Works Pillbox designs, and is the only one with a specific anti-tank capability. It is almost square in plan with the forward facing corners chamfered. 
 
The walls are constructed to shell-proof specification at about 42in thick. There is a very large forward embrasure, designed to take a 2 pounder anti-tank gun or a Hotchkiss 6pdr gun, with the gun shield of the artillery piece largely filling the aperture. 
 
There is also a side chamber giving a forward facing embrasure suitable for a rifle or light machine gun. This resolved the problem of the type 28 being vulnerable to a head-on infantry attack.
 
This particular item is a type 28A Pillbox in 15mm/1:100 scale. This item is suitable for use with a number of game systems and miniatures ranges. is supplied unpainted, and some preparatory work may also be required.
