This completes my third build for the Incomming Campaign. It is the Italeri 1/35 M110 203mm SP gun.
This is a good kit! The only part that gave me trouble was the Italeri tracks.(as expected) I broke off one rod wheel three times before got the tracks attached! But the rest of the kit is a dandy. It's been a fun campaign guys! Please feel free to comment, it helps me progress.















Cheers,

Garry

Garry,

She's really nice looking. I particularly like the worn paint look around the breech.

Please forgive my ignorance as I'm just starting to learn about all things armor... I'm wondering about the main rust/brown color. Is this a U.S. vehicle and paint scheme or some other nation? What time frame would this kind of color have been applied? Or, is it just what you wanted to do? ...which is great too.

Nice build!

Ok guys, bare with me on this. I am partialy color blind, but that is not the reason this build is brown. That is what the instructions called for. Sounded odd to me to, so I asked on the Armor board if it was correct, and I was told that it was. Model Masters Military Brown is the color! So my hands are in the air, I tried! I better stick to WW-2, OD is safer for me.

Garry,
Unfortunately, I think you may have transposed the colors like on the Paladin. MM Military Brown is the brown in 3-color NATO camo. The M110A2 should be either 3-color NATO, MERDC for 1970's to early '80s, or overall Dark Green for earlier models. Or sand for USMC Desert Storm time frame. Build looks great though.

The pic with the gun at max elevation is impressive.

I agree Gino, I went back and scouwered over the instructions and my old post. Its my blunder! I take full responsibility for the paint screw up. Now I can go back and correct the color. Thanks for your response Gino.
