The kit: Italeri M110A2, kit no.291. The Egyptian M110A2 has been in service since 1996, fitted with a 203 mm cannon. Its range can reach up to 30,000 meters, and with a hydraulic ram for fast reloading, it can reach a rate of fire of 2 to 4 rounds per minute. The Italeri kit was quite straight forward to assemble, the parts are all a perfect fit and the amount of detail is fairly good. The biggest challenge was fixing the rubber tracks which are a very tight fit and continuously broke the wheels while being assembled. To fix this I used a hot hair dryer on the tracks until they became more flexible, and expanded enough to mount on the wheels. The entire model measures more than 30 cm when assembled, but most of the length is on the cannon side, so the base used for this M110 was quite small. The figures were taken from several different kits and converted to the new Egyptian Army uniform. I tried to use the figures to add some dynamic character to this rather modest diorama. Hope you enjoy it! Cheers, Hussein El Kaissy.
