Carl used a Tamiya “U.S. Howitzer Motor Carriage M8” 1/35 scale kit No. 35312, but he cut the too short hull across the rear engine compartment “hump” and added a few millimeters of styrene strip. He replaced the tracks with individual link tracks, better road wheels, and LOTS of scratch-built parts and details. Carl finally added plenty of stowage to give his carriage that lived-in look.

Our member interests span the entire spectrum of the subject and include all eras and nationalities, from pre-WWI experiments with armored cars to vehicles seen on the most contemporary battlefields of today. Our interests include not only fully-tracked main battle tanks, but also engineering vehicles, halftracks, armored cars, artillery and guns, as well as soft-skin military support vehicles, figures, and even "hypothetical" and sci-fi military subjects. Model-building genres cover all scales and mediums from traditional injection molded plastic to resin, white metal, and scratch-building.
We invite you to come and join us at our next meeting and share the comradery found in our little "band of brothers (and sisters)!"
