    Artitec 387.78 Highlights:

    Model: Artitec's 387.78 1/87 scale WWII M12 is fully assembled and painted US Army/Navy (AN) 319 Olive Drab. All the new Artitec finished models are highly detailed works of art. They are all hand painted and finished using the highest quality resin, plastic and metal parts. Add a few to your collection today before they are sold out. Models are made in small production runs so don't delay in ordering.

    Prototype: The M12 155 mm Gun Motor Carriage was a self-propelled artillery vehicle that mounted a 155 M1917 gun on a Lee/Sherman tank chassis. The large gun took up much of the space of the rear of the vehicle, leaving room for only 10 shells. Another Lee/Sherman conversion, the M30 Cargo Carrier, operated with the M12 and could carry an additional 40 shells. When firing, a rear-mounted earth spade was deployed to absorb the gun’s recoil. While a very powerful weapon, only 100 were built from 1942-1943 and we only initially used for training purposes. By the time of D-Day however most of the M12s were sent to Europe for combat operations and proved valuable for attacks against German hard fortifications.

    PLEASE NOTE: These models are all handmade and painted which makes every one unique. This means the paint patterns may vary a little and the detail parts like sandbags, turret tracks, antennas, etc. may also be arranged differently. This was also the case in real life. These models are very prototypical.
