Nice work on this massive kit! When my father was in the Army in the late 50's / early 60's, he was one of the Heavy Vehicle Operators that drove the tow tractors moving this thing all over Germany during the Cold War. You've inspired me to put all my other modeling projects on hold and build one in his honor (he passed away in July). It's rare to see anyone taking on this beast of a kit. Thanks for sharing! I just ordered one online. :)

Nice choice, Chris. I built the kit myself and I know it takes a lot of space. Interesting to see it out of the box, because I totally tore it apart... Did you build a lot of artillery since?

Thanks Steve. No artillery yet. I did pick up the long tom tho.probably a winter build this year ????

Robert did he ever get that monster stuck? There's some tight spots in Europe! I met one of the communication officers at an event our club held at the local VFW. He had some great stories. My favorite was fire it, jump in your foxhole, wait for the blast to pass and fire again haha.

Yeah he's said it was easy to get the tractor stuck or jack knifed due to the irregular drivability of the thing. Most people don't even know this thing ever existed!

When people see the model, they think it's science fiction.
