Full Build Review by: Tony Lee


Tamiya and Italeri have teamed up to reintroduce the M107 175mm Self-Propelled Gun from the Vietnam war era.
Tamiya claims to have updated Italeri's kit with more details,improved parts fit,softer band tracks that can be cemented and painted. Tamiya also included three figures and accessories such as a M16A1,two M60 machine guns,a folding table and chairs plus three folding cots and more.
Markings for two U.S. Army units:
Army 2nd Battalion,32nd Field Artillery Regiment,Vietnam 1969
Army 7th Battalion,15th Field Artillery Regiment,Vietnam 1969

I've not built the older Italeri kit but Sherman is building one for the Uncle Tony's SPG campaign
www.modelersalliance.com/forum/uncle-tony-s-spgs/151136-m107
and those that would like to compare the two kits may do so.

Looking over the Tamiya sprues this morning it appears the detail is crisper and knock out punch marks are shallower and easier to deal with if need be plus I didn't find a single sink mark anywhere.
