This is probably one of my best creations for this year because it packs the best building techniques and mechanical parts that i have ever built. Historical info, the M8 75mm howitzer GMC was a modification to the M5 Stuart. it consisted of a different turret (carrying a 75mm howitzer) and the front was modified for the diver's hatches. About my model, this vehicle includes some of my best work on the various angles on it. probably one of my favorite parts (that was a real headache to build) is the 5 point star on the left side of the tank, that includes some SNOT techniques. My biggest leap in mechanical parts is the 2-speed transmission, that is 2 of Sariel's heavy duty transmissions that are heavily modified and coupled to fit into the ten stud wide hull of the tank. This tank will be my last build for 2013 and in 2014 i will have a whole new line of vehicles to roll out.
About this creation














details of the inside of the turret and breech



the SNOT 5 point star

the HVSS suspension (same one used on my Firefly) it should be VVSS but it would be too tall.

Great build, it seems very large! I wonder how easy it is to track the rear in WoT...

Quoting Banana Sniper I'm trying to make the smallest RC tank possible and yet still be able to put figures in it. How small would you say the transmission would be feasible to make?
The transmission is 10 wide, 7 tall, 6 long (not including motors ). But it's designed to be used with XL motors and it has to have a motor behind the XL's to shift it , here's a pic of it http://m.flickr.com/#/photos/100480897@N07/11125407476/

Amazing! I can see your building style becoming better (more smooth surfaces) and the technic bits must have been very hard to build. I like how you stay true to the operational part of the machine - the suspension may not look historical, but IT WORKS!! Can't wait for the video!

Beautiful work! I love the brick built star on the side very clever . I'll bet this would be fun to drive around the yard. I love the suspension you built for this vehicle . Excellent!
