Awesome! Following - I have this in my wishlist. Will be building it for my VFW's WWI Centenary Display Case.

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.

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.

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+!

No problem with this, either pic nor details of kit....makes it even more challenging to create a nice model! Staying tuned!

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.

Looks very good. A clean and careful build!

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.
