These chaps were assembled some months ago but have only recently seen paint. Actually after painting so much US Woodland camo they suddenly seemed like an easy option.
Like many of these Tamiya kits the age of the moulds has has no adverse effect on the parts and the whole thing went together well - discrepancies between the box art and the finished models are entirely down to my bungling!
The 107mm (4.2 inch) M30 has a rifled barrel* and entered US service in the early 1950s. This one will serve as a battalion support asset.
*obviously so does my model - you just can't see it in the photos....
