I am going to build (have already done a few little things) Italeri's M-107 Sef Propelled Gun
(1:35, Kit No. 6248)

WOW, so many people interested in the big (and small) guns.
I've just about finished Italeri's M-110 and have just got started on the M-107 (both Italeri).


Here is a shot of the M110 and the barrel of the M107. The barrel is from Barrel Depot (no. 35046)


I hope I am doing this right (posting in the right place, etc.), yell at me if I'm not.

Having Way TOO Much Fun !!

Looks really good, I like your M110.

I'm not a big fan of all the aftermarket stuff, but after spending countless hours trying to fix some of the kit supplied offerings, I'm all for aluminum or brass replacements. Definitely wouldn't want to tackle something that big!

Ya Ya, I know but I couldn't help myself. I just had to see if that barrel was going to work.
And yes the kit parts were going to a 'beast' to fix (misaligned and warped).

PS the M110 is NOT part of the entry just hope the M107 will trun out as well.

I'm also doing an m-107,already started few monthes ago but with the amount of time i have for it vs the amount of details i'm adding i'm not even sure i'll finishe it on time.
i'm building mine as an IDF gun circa the late 80'. the IDF added few modifications to the gun which i'm scratch building,i'm also scratching lots of deatil like hydraulics and electric

OK, its DONE!
I didn't know if I could do it, I haven't had much time (New Job) and the kit was a "Bear" to build. Next project will, I hope, be easier.
