Does anyone make a non-naval version of the Bofors AA gun?
All the ones I can find online seem to be for ships. I want one on it's transport carriage with a shield.

Have you seen Bill's Models guns on Shapeways?
These are quite basic models, I'm afraid.

Or Game Miniatures (Stairways again)? Then again, this might be another naval one.
This guy's guns are fine models. You might ask him if he is going to do an allied non naval 40mms Bofors...

I have a white metal bofors. I'll post a picture later and try to remember where I got it from!

Peter, try pithead-miniatures here in the uk
Not too sure of quality as they are aimed at wargamers

You probably won't get through as the site has been down since January if this post is a guide. I tried the "dot tk" variant and got nowhere. As it happens, I believe Pithead were similar to Minifigs in that their range was scaled to 10mm i.e. about 1/160 scale. And, as the photos on this page attest, the detail is definitely wargame quality. Looks like one of the 3D-prints might be the best bet after all ... unless John at Arrowhead has something in the pipeline.
