Neuling Very beautiful build!
2. September at 14:17:45
Rick Taylor Thanks! This one was a struggle. While doing the camo scheme, I accidentally dropped my wooden model painting stand on the model. The spade and trail shattered into 10 pieces. I thought that it was a total loss. But, I was able to get all of the pieces back together and it is almost impossible to tell where it was broke.

Neuling A beautiful piece of artillery. You built it with great care and sophistication - as usual.
16. August at 18:17:15
Rick Taylor Thanks guys! The kit is excellent. Normally have to scratch build the equilibrators and airbrake lines; but, not this time. I often have to model the big guns with the breech closed because the detail is poor; but, AFV Club did a nice job on the stepped interrupted thread breech details so the breech is open to show off the details. The only things lacking in the kit are PE data plates and brackets.
16. August at 20:56:25
Rick Taylor I wrote a build review on the kit. It should be up on Armorama in a couple of days. I'll post a link here when it is live.

Calvin Gifford Awesome! Following - I have this in my wishlist. Will be building it for my VFW's WWI Centenary Display Case.
4. February at 03:39:42
Michael Valentan Also following...nice original pic, seem to be Aussies...
4. February at 13:22:01
Rick Taylor Michael, yes the photo is with an Aussie crew. I couldn't find a decent photo with an American crew that could be trimmed to fit Scalemates' odd widescreen photo frame.
4. February at 16:33:21
Rick Taylor Calvin, I wrote an in-box review on the kit for Armorama. It hasn't been posted yet. The kit is kind of old-school - low parts count, some flash and sinks. I've started removing the parts from the sprues, cleaning, them, and bagging them by assembly step. I'm going to have to fabricate a couple of parts to eliminate molded on hand spikes and shovel. I think it will build up into a decent kit; but, will take more work than one would expect for a new offering.
4. February at 16:39:03
Calvin Gifford That's cool. Kinda sounds like an old Revell or Monogram armor kit! I'm just glad that we finally have some WWI armor kits to build that are not resin & cost $100+!
4. February at 19:29:48
Michael Valentan No problem with this, either pic nor details of kit....makes it even more challenging to create a nice model! Staying tuned!
5. February at 08:14:29
Rick Taylor I've completed this project. The build review was published on Armorama today at: https://armorama.kitmaker.ne..req=showcontent&id=14502

This is the styrene kit available of an artillery piece used by the US Army in the Great War. All of the others are only available in resin. So the rest of my WW1 US artillery collection is going to be a slog. This kit is not perfect; but, it goes together much faster than the resin kits. Overall, I am happy with Roden's offering and look forward to seeing more WW1 artillery from them.

16. May at 02:36:41
Neuling Looks very good. A clean and careful build!
16. May at 05:54:33
Rick Taylor Thanks guys! I am currently working on a WW1 155mm howitzer in resin. The Roden kit is looking better by the minute compared to the hassle of working with resin.

Bart Goesaert Nice detailing on this one.
3. May at 10:33:37
Rick Taylor Thanks. The kit parts for the platform where almost devoid of detail. I was able to find two line drawings of the platform in the US Ordnance Manual and used those to add the missing steel reinforcing and rope grommets.

16. May at 12:35:13
Bart Goesaert nice colors...
16. May at 14:50:23
Rick Taylor Thanks guys! From the photos that I collected, it looks like the majority of these in France prior to the armistice were in the British 2 color camo scheme. As the US bought all of its initial artillery from France and Britain, they were often left in those country's camo. Pieces produced in the US used the US patterns and many of the pieces acquired from France and Britain were later repainted in the US scheme. Most US artillery units in the Great War entered the line very late in the War; so, wear and damage were minimal. Most of the US units equipped with the 8-inch howitzer saw only a couple of weeks of combat usage. Therefore, I've depicted this example with very little wear and weathering.

Rick Taylor Thanks guys. The conversion was pretty simple with the 3D printed barrel. The scratch built stuff is all easily done with styrene sheet, strips, and rods. There are great walk arounds on the web and in the Doyle book that allow you to properly dimension the parts. If I were to do it again, I would use the Tamiya M40 as the base kit. It includes the correct track type. The 'rubber band' tracks work well for US vehicles with live tracks - they are always tightly tensioned and don't sag. the Tamiya kit is as well detailed as the AFV Club and is much easier to assemble. Plus, you end up with a spare correctly dimensioned 155mm gun barrel that can be used to replace the incorrect barrel in the AFV Club Long Tom towed kit. I would use the Voyager PE again as it is more detailed and more expansive than the Eduard set. The AFV Club ammo is great.

Rui S very nice work

Rick Taylor Thank you. I strive for accuracy. I'm a retired artillery officer. Weapon systems are very well maintained. They are cleaned daily in the field and are rarely as dirty as some modelers depict.
