Painting Artillery

I found the same problem so after painting the gun I now put some basetex on the base where the gun is going and let it dry before glueing the gun in place later. This raises the gun to the same height as the crew as I build up the basetex around their bases to the same height as the bit the gun is sitting on

I must say that does sound like a good tip for getting crerw and gun to a similar height.
