the O112 is a smaller version of the M113 and as the O designates it is made for Oronegro, the O versions of Popular AFV's come in either a smaller version or a lager version of the original, for instance another vehicle built in Oronegro was the O1A1 which was a huge version of the Abrams MTB, the O112 does not come in many forms and the Howitzer is the only one that saw action only under the command of National forces. Why smaller? well even this howitzer can be transported by plane, the O112 series of AFV's was designed for air transport and for use in the older districts in the city of La Ley or in other places where ally ways were common. the O112 was exported to a few other nations but never was used by the USA or Great Britain who knew that their army would possibly realise something was up with these smaller vehicles...
|gun in rolling along the road, yes that gun is huge, perhaps a bit bigger than 175mm but it seemed suitable|
|the gun rolls along the road attracting the attention of a near by soldier|
|that rectangular bit above the gun can be lowered over the gun to provide extra strength when firring-mostly done when multiple shots have been fired because once down the guns angle cannot be adjusted|
|this guy should get down a good sniper would easily pick him off. the little tally chart is done with a sharp pencil, I forgot to take a photo but I also used pencil to give a metallic look to the tracks and the end of the guns barrel!|
|sorry didn't rotate it my fault|
how did I create this; well I got that M113 fire support vehicle I had, and because it was 1/76 scale and I hope (dream) that I may one day get some M113 vehicles or the Vulcan air-defence system mounted on a M113 I thought that because these would be true 1/72 that this little one would be too small. so I took a knife to it and removed part of the roof. added some dowel (a bit long) and some other bits and bobs. and of coarse the figs. then paint, and detail, wash and finally a bit of pencil to add a metallic look here and there and that tally chart.
there you go guys, have a nice day/night
