This tank was built off of the chassis of the M41 Walker Bulldog. In place of a turret is a large, open canopy with the heavy 155mm howitzer in the middle. Due to the use of the M41 Walker Bulldog's chassis and drivetrain, the M44 had increased mobility and speed compared to other SPGs.
Scale: 1 stud to 1 foot (approx.)
Brick Count: 504

This model was the largest tank I had built in LDD up to this point. This was not a very large obstacle, as it merely made me use the same techniques on a larger scale. The front armor was created by hinging plates and then deleting the bricks used to hinge them, making them essentially magically float. This was also done for the sloped part of the track guard. All in all, a fun build.
