Hi all,

It's been quite a while since I posted anything here, just because I didn't have anything new!

 

So now, here is an M8 armored ammunition trailer built from scratch.

The tires are 3D printed and everything is moveable : doors, traps and stand.

Please see the paint bottle for scale.

Thanks for coming here and comments are welcome.

 

Cheers from the heart of the Normandy cauldron.

Manu

Very nice! Clean, accurate build. Will it be a standalone or will it be towed by something?

Thanks for your comments!

 

I intend to make in a more or less near future a M4A3 (VVSS) 105mm to tow either the M8 or the M10.

I'm still waiting for resin mouldings of my scratchbuilt 105mm shell crate (and their stencil markings in pe) and tube bundles to put in.

 

Cheers,

Manu
