Nice !! I always wanted to build one of these along with the full tracked carrier. Nice detail shots here.
As an aside,US Navy heavy cruisers had at least 9 of these massive guns ! A salvo like that could ruin your whole day.

Love t when people post these kinds of pics on the site, it adds so much to see detailed photos of the real thing rather than wrangle over details in B&W in some book.

Hi Fred

Thank you for posting the pictures. They are useful to me.
Where are they on display.

I have been scratch building the M1 240mm Howitzer and the M1 8 inch gun for a long time now and I'm almost finished. I'm also scratch building the tracked wagons. I still have to post the up to date pictures on my web page.
