AFV Club 1/35 scale M2A1 105mm howitzer

Building this model kit will require a skilled modeler comfortable with small, delicate parts.
By John Plzak
Published: August 5, 2011
AFV Club has released two versions of the M2A1 105mm howitzer at the same time, one with the early M2 carriage, the other with the later M2A2 carriage (the subject of this review). The major difference between them is the later version has a different gun-shield arrangement, and the carriage uses standard military tires. These guns were first produced in 1941, served throughout World War II, continued through the Vietnam War, and are still used by several countries.
