I have a real problem with American tank destroyers and anti tank guns. Problem being I can't get enough of them. I have felt slighted (just kidding, I'll live) by the lack of American anti-tank guns on the market. Now I noticed that GMW is have a pre-order the new AFV kit #AFV35181 105mm howitzer on the carriage M6. Why does this look like a 3in gun on the M6 carriage? Have I lost it finally?

I don't think you've lost it.....yet. That does look like a 3in, defiinatly NOT a 105. It may be just a typ-o at the model site that listed it. I'd go to the AFV club website and see what they call it. I don't like thier site, as it's all in Korean? and my google translator won't work at that site. I really hope thry do come out with it. I really need some kits to shoot back at all the German stuff on the shelves. It appears the Germans are winning the "quantity" model war, as Allied stuff is dwarfed by it. I like to build some "good guys" for a change every now and again!

Well....I feel better now. Now, if they'll come out with a 57mm and a 37mm gun, I can die happy.

That'll be a "Ardennes 1944" dio screaming to be built if that kit is released. I'd be second in line for that. Right behind you!
