My Vietnamese is pretty bad..beyond di di mao, I'm lost what does the quote on the barrel mean? Nice model by the way.

I assume the idea is that this piece of equipment was handed over to the South Vietnamese from the US during Vietnamization (hence the presence of both markings)? Very original idea, I love it.

Totally agree. Excellent work and the weathering is superb. Very subtle and quite realistic. Nicely done!

Hi Cairus, I'm FrancisGL from Britmodeller mate, from time to time I went through this website, I presented a model for the contest of the month, I think it was in August of last year, that it was a MERKAVA MK1 of Tamiya, and although it did not win, it was better situated than I imagined, and today for a long time I did not do it, I found myself by surprise with your great M-107, as I said before in BM, SUPERB !!!!.
