WWII-Vietnam M59 155mm Long Tom: 1:32 Scale Model
New in the box 1/32 scale plastic model of the M59 155mm Long Tom howitzer, already painted with olive drab finish, powder residue details, and a name painted on the barrel "Berlin". Also includes the proper carriage. The howitzer can be set up in the firing position or in the travel position. The tube elevates and swivels, the trails open for deployment and close for travel, and even has a breech that opens! Minor glueless assembly required. Fully illustrated instructions included. There are lots of small parts, so recommended for ages 5+. Easy assembly, but young aspiring redlegs will need a bit of adult assistance.
The howitzers were a crucial fire support weapon used by the U.S. Army during WWII, the Korean War and Vietnam War. Known affectionately as 'Long Toms' they delivered massive 200-lb missiles of destruction on the enemy.
