*Wiki Info*

A U.S. SPG developed in 1945 on the basis of the T26E3 for destroying bunkers and underground hideouts on islands of the Pacific. Five vehicles were built, including the experimental one. The project was discontinued when the war ended.

The 240 mm Howitzer Motor Carriage T92 was self-propelled howitzer developed by the United States of America during World War II. The 240 mm M1 howitzer was mounted on a slightly modified Heavy Tank T26E3 (later the "Heavy Tank M26 Pershing") chassis - it used an extra bogie wheel, to bring a total of seven. A limited production run was ordered in March 1945, and the first test model was finished in July of that year. Total production of the T92 was five. A similar vehicle was also built in conjunction with the T92, the 8in Gun Motor Carriage T93. The T93 mounted the longer 8in M1 gun.

Limited numbers of both 240mm HMC T92s and 8in GMC T93s were going to be used in Operation Downfall, the planned invasion of the Japanese mainland. However, after the Japanese surrender on 14 August 1945, the T92s and T93s were not shipped to the Pacific Theater of Operations.

- Model Features -

- Rolling tracks

First build of the year and I gotta say, I just love how the T92 HMC looks, it looks like it means business. I will say that in order to make the look of the travel lock as close as I could make it that it is by far the weakest point on the model, but when in place and attached to the gun it should be a bit stronger.



For those interested, you can view it in 360 3D on its Mecabricks page Here.

EDIT:

I've never made it to the homepage so fast! It's barely been two hours since I uploaded this MOC, thanks guys!


Also the gun was one 2x2 round brick too long, the brick has been removed and the LDD file updated below.

Quoting Alex Sonny wow, this is very impressive. The proportions are spot on pretty much. You've improved a lot since the last time we've been in touch. Had you entered this way back then, you'd have won that contest ;)
Thank you! Yeah I've become more used to LDD since I started and the fact that tanks.gg has rotating 3D models makes things so much easier. I'm glad you're back man, it's been forever...
