I came across this review back in October 3 of the two Deskit kits before their release, if any one is interested in seeing it of the M33 Prime Mover and the M1 240mm Howitzer and wheeled wagon.

I Have been waiting for a long time for a manufacture to build this as a 1/35 kit, so back in July 14, 2016 I started to scratch built the M1 240mm Howitzer and the M1 8 inch Gun plus the tracked wagons using all the Sherman track parts and the rear idlers of the M4 HST.

I have been trying to reduce the size of my picture so that I can post them to my gallery and then to the forum. If you want to see my progress pictures have a look at my web page.

Hauler did it in 1:72.

Anyone know how to order from DESkit? Their website is less than helpful. Or a UK stockist?
