M7 Priest
The 105 mm Howitzer Motor Carriage M7 was an American self-propelled artillery vehicle produced during World War II. It was given the official service name 105 mm Self Propelled Gun, Priest by the British Army, due to the pulpit-like machine gun ring, and following on from the Bishop and the contemporary Deacon self-propelled guns.
About this creation


This is a Priest that is based off the ORIGINAL M7 Priest built upon the M3 Lee chassis, NOT the M7B1 built upon the Sherman Tank chassis. The lower half is based upon Dan Siskind's M3 Lee. Some of the design is also used from "Rumrunner" on Flicker.


Front. I built this a while back and it is now finally getting its moment in the spotlight.

Left. Sorry for the long breaks in-between MOCs, I just got back from Florida and school just started back as well.

Back. I am very happy with it.

Right. It was kept from MOCpages because I was constantly improving it, adding this and that, but now I have finally got it to the point in which it is worth posting.

Overview.

The open top details.

The 50.cal for, you know, shooting stuff. And I know the Brickarms 30.cal just came out but if I used that it would not be accurate.

Front detail.

The gun elevation I use.

As far as it will go.

The back with all the stuff piled on.

The opening back Hatch.

The back open with the engine inside. Unfortunately I did not make an interior.

The figs loading the gun.

HA HA! We aren't totally defenseless!

Thanks for watching and please comment.

It's... beautiful. Very slick design, way to make a rather clunky vehicle (M7) into something pretty. Tres fantastique!

Quoting Mr Viking Very good! Quick question, is a self-propelled artillery classified as a tank or an artillery, or does it have it's own classification?
Self-Propelled Artillery. It is under Artillery.

Quoting Caleb S I like it, it's just to bad you had to go and put brick arms on. I love the M2 though.
Eh, don't judge it upon the fact that I use Brickarms. I would be a purist, but I am not good at it.

I couldn't have done it better! Great job man! This is the first M7 Priest I've seen on MOCpages, and with such detail.
