M3A2 Half-Track T19 105 mm HMC 'Fighting Iron'

Post by PhiMa on Tue Nov 16, 2010 6:16 pm

Why yes, this IS the definition of Armored Artillery.

One of my favourite vehicles of World War 2, The 'Carrier, Personnel Half-track M3' was produced by White Motor Company approximately 43000 times. This specific model however, models a 105 mm M1A2 Howitzer and armored plating.

Version four, If I recall correctly. My goal was to shorten it and make it less wide then the last model, but at the same time make it look good. I think I've succeeded. The front seat should fit two people, but I'm not sure if the height is up to par. Rolling tracks, opening doors and the front and back as well as a working winch and a removable Howitzer Razz

Inspiration from RumRunner and Dunechaser.



The back, with an opening door Wow this thing looks


Closer look at the howitzer:


And the scale comparison:


Enjoy!

Nice job! I was wondering why you didnt continue trying to sell your designs. After visiting batisbricks.com I think you were charging toooo little for yours. It would make a great business to see some high quality vehicles.

Eh, great job here.

I charged little cause I wanted people to buy my stuff. A higher price tag turns people off. Razz I stopped doing it though cause I was too lazy to make instructions, and don't have the kind of money to order the pieces from bricklink for several models to sell. If you'd like to do some sorta colab where I make the design and you make the instructions + sell the kits, fine by me. Razz

M3A2 Half Track

Post by theclonearmory on Mon Nov 22, 2010 4:47 am

Awesome Half Track! love the greebles on the 105mm Howitzer. Truly Amazing! Why not try building Aircraft? like a 352nd FG P-51D Mustang, P-47D Thunderbolt, Me-109, Focke-Wulf FW-190, Hawker Typhoon and Spitfire?

This is amazing. Try a star wars variant for the clone army. That would look cool indefinitely.

Great job. The section were the double-clip holds the 2 by 1 tile that runs over the tire is ingenious.

I'm not quite sure. It should be able to fit one, unless the cabin is too low.
