Nice detailing on this one.

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.

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.

What you show here is not a good copy, but a little original! I like the precise interior detail work and the over all appearance.

Thanks! This one took a long time and had lots of challenges but it turned out well.

It Turn out Excellent Beautifu paintjob &l model
A base and dio??? It sure deserves 8)
17. August, 21:20
Rick Taylor
Michael,

The Academy kit was good overall - good details, and fit, no flash or molding issues. The kit includes two options on the type of road wheels and drive sprockets. There is some type of dimensional issue in the drivers compartment and engine compartment - things didn't quite match the photos. But these areas are not visible in the completed model. I have a second Academy M12 that will be converted into a T30 ammo carrier to accompany the M12. I've already scavenged the 155 gun from it to kit bash with the Commander Models resin 155 GPF kit.

Rui,

Thank you! Maybe once the ammo carrier is built, I'll put them together in a diorama.

Another valuable contribution to your artillery collection.
17. August, 08:51
Rick Taylor
Indeed. For such an important artillery piece, I am surprised that it took this long to get a high quality styrene kit. I had two rather unsatisfying resin kits and the old, crude TOM/RPM kit but just couldn't bring myself to build them. This kit was a welcome relief.

Fascinating. :) Would look even nicer with a figure or a diorama.

Did you use pigments on this model?
9. August, 18:58
Rui S
Yes, This single piece looks Great
9. August, 19:51
Rick Taylor
Thank you!

Yes, it would look better with a figure to give it scale. So far, I suck at painting figures. At some point, I am going to have to work at developing that skill.

I did use a bit of pigment on the firing base as this would be stepped on by the crew.

This was a fun little kit. Very quick to build and an interesting subject.

Top work as always! Remember Rick: painting figures is like painting guns, just a little different.

Careful and clean work on this interesting piece of artillery.
28. June, 10:13
Rick Taylor
Thanks. It is interesting to see how various armies innovated, or failed to innovate, between the wars. There are some interesting and obscure weapons from that period.

Thanks Rui. Now I have to get better at my photography. The Olive-Drab always looks lighter in the photos than they do on the models.

Wonderful build again. Photography as well. But if you want it darker just reduce the time of exposure and/or the aperture.

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.
