The classic Revell/Renwal M55 8-inch Howitzer. A pretty fun build, expanded on the basic interior that came with the kit.

It could be cool to see a modern offering of this. It is a pretty unique looking SPG for the modern era. It really had the feel of the 50's when everything was designed with the "go big or go home" attitude!

I believe Elite Models of Germany do one of these in 1:35 in resin.

Yes, they do: Art.Nr. 3578, at 140, but it has no turret interior. [www.elitemodell.de/elite/bundeswehr/3578]

Check out Mil-Mod.com. This modeler accurized his M-55 and wrote up how he did it. Amazing
