The 105 mm Howitzer Motor Carriage M7 was an American self-propelled artillery vehicle produced during World War II. It was given the official service name 105 mm Self Propelled Gun, Priest by the British Army, due to the pulpit-like machine gun ring, and following on from the Bishop and the contemporary Deacon self-propelled guns.
About this creation
This is a Priest that is based off the ORIGINAL M7 Priest built upon the M3 Lee chassis, NOT the M7B1 built upon the Sherman Tank chassis. The lower half is based upon Dan Siskind's M3 Lee. Some of the design is also used from "Rumrunner" on Flicker.
Front. I built this a while back and it is now finally getting its moment in the spotlight.

Back. I am very happy with it.
Right. It was kept from MOCpages because I was constantly improving it, adding this and that, but now I have finally got it to the point in which it is worth posting.

The 50.cal for, you know, shooting stuff. And I know the Brickarms 30.cal just came out but if I used that it would not be accurate.
The gun elevation I use.
As far as it will go.
The back with all the stuff piled on.
The opening back Hatch.
The back open with the engine inside. Unfortunately I did not make an interior.
The figs loading the gun.
HA HA! We aren't totally defenseless!
