1/21 DT103-450 Tamiya US Army Heavy Field Piece M2 155mm Long Tom Gun
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Good+
Legendary and rare. This early, large-scale Tamiya kit is an amazing operating model, even by modern standards. Well detailed and features a complex gun elevating system that works by turning the proper hand wheel which then functions through a series of metal pinion gears, functional elevation pistons, working transversing gear through turning the correct hand wheel (through metal pinion gears also), opening breech, movable trailing arms for travel or firing position, removable wheel towing set with realistic suspension that you build up one leaf spring at a time and much more. This model does everything but launch a projectile; there is a inner metal barrel and some other (rubber banded moving) parts I do not understand, so it may well fire something. The model is molded in dark olive drab, light gray, with rubber tires and with a large number of metal parts. The kit has never been started. Inside it is exactly as it left the factory, with all parts factory sealed in clear bags with Tamiya 155mm M2 Gun paper headers. The box has very good color and gloss, is intact, complete and has four solid corners but has general wear as shown.
