Nice work.   As an artillery man, I can tell you that those legs are called "trails".

This is an M198 155mm towed Howitzer.  Four strong men could lift the trails from or to the pintle at the back of a 5-ton truck.

Just added some more of the details and a pair of small handles that I believe were used to spread out the trails when the gun was put into a firing positionIMG_20210115_183122438.thumb.jpg.5a568bbe829ba943e08df9140eb039e8.jpgIMG_20210115_183345843.thumb.jpg.85ccfed22621cfb2a957a1271ef7b5a8.jpgIMG_20210115_183342687.thumb.jpg.f6a9c616bfd08c6b135d7b16a80fb411.jpg

Well took a little longer than I thought it would but it looks better now and the shells and ammunition box look nice and clean.

Took about of effort getting the right colour for them
