Hi Everyone,

I was at a model show and bought a kit that didn't come with the instructions. I've been looking like crazy for them and can't seem to find it. Does anyone know where I could find a copy?

Testors / Italeri 1/35 105mm Howitzer M101 kit #828

I went to Testors site and they said no replacement on their FAQ's.

Thanks,

Mike

Searching for: Italeri 319 instruction
yielded this (requires registration and login ....) :
http://www.modelercorner.com/model-kit/93/instruction/105-mm-howitzer
should be the same plastic, it has been released as Testor, Italeri and Revell with different kit numbers

Mike,
I found a copy of the instructions for Italeri Kit #319, 105mm Howitzer M101 on www.modelercorner.com. It looks to my eye as a rebox of the kit you're looking for. I've never used the site before but may be an option for you.
Hope this helps.
John

Within 1 minute counts as simultaneous

BUT
I found instructions for Revell 03014 (almost the same bits and pieces)
here:
https://www.scalemates.com/kits/132626-revell-03014-105mm-feldhaubitze-l
scroll down a bit and there is a greenish "button" to download a pdf-file, I have tried and it works.

The Revell boxing seems to have been upgraded with a muzzle brake and modern rear lights. The instructions should work together with the plastic in the Testors boxing.
Step 12 says that the fron part of the barrel should be cut off. This applies to the modernised German version (muzzle brake) so ignore this and keep the original parts.
If I read the instructions correctly the parts with numbers above 88 shall be ignored for the Testors boxing
