About this creation

HISTORICAL DATA:
Weight: 12.6 tons
Armament: 105mm howitzer

Development of the T82 started in December 1943. The vehicle was put on trials in August 1944, but was never mass-produced, nor saw service. The T82 was a SPG built by the Heil Company to a specific Ordnance Department requirement for a light vehicle for Pacific theatre of operations. This vehicle was equipped with the M3 105mm howitzer which could fire a 30 pound projectile about 5 miles. The T82 was based on the M5A1 Stuart chassis and could carry 58 rounds of 105mm ammunition.

This model was fun. It took me rather a long time, mostly because I put off finishing it for a while. But the wait is over, here it is!
It was built on the same chassis as the T18, with some alterations: you'll notice I recolored the wheels and some other parts of the tank to make it look better. Just my opinion on how it should look. If you don't like it, that's okay, to each his own.

Enjoy!

Quoting Claw Paradox Nice job! I prefer tanks that are minifigure-scale, but this is very good.
Thank you! And to each his own, I guess. I build at a larger scale because it lets me incorporate more detail into models.
