A few days ago I posted a couple of photos before it was finished. One guy ask for more pics so now that it is finished, here are a few more. The kit is Hobby Boss's M4 High Speed tractor and AFV Club's Long Tom gun. Both are basicly out of the box except for the brake lines on the gun and air hoses to connect to the tractor. Hobby Boss gives you string for the cable and I got rid of that and made my own by chucking three strands of fine wire in my Dremel tool and turning in on low speed. The canvas cover over the ammo bins is tissue paper soaked in a diluted mix of white glue and water and then painted. The crew figures are from Tamiya and modified to sitting positions and to fit inside the tractor. I hope you like it. Some time in the future I plan to make a base to mount it on but for now that's it. As I don't usually build armor but mostly aircraft, I cannot be held responsible for any flaws or mistakes.

On to the photos.

Thanks for posting your pics, I hope to get the HB M-4 HST in the very near future. Your build shows it can be built into a great looking model. I'll probably have it towing the 8" Howitzer. Great build. Don M.

To post an image of your models, you will first need to find somewhere to host your photos on the Internet. Your ISP will often give you a limited amount of free web storage, and other online photo storage is also available.

To post a link or an image, simply type in the URL (web address) of the destination page or image. The URL will appear as a link (for an HTML link) or an image (if you link direct to a .jpg file) when posted. You can use the Preview facility to see how your message looks before posting to Plastic Pix.

Please try to keep image sizes to 800 pixels wide or less, as larger sizes will be too big to fit on many computer screens. Also, file sizes should be kept to around 100kb or less, otherwise download may be very slow.
