A great Korean war piece although I think a couple may have gotten in at the very end of WW2. IIRC Tamiya made one in 1/24th or 1/25th way back in the day (late 60s early 70s).

A single vehicle was tested in Europe in 1945 by the 991st Field Artillery Battalion, along with one T89 8" HMC, which would become the M43 8" Howitzer Motor Carriage.

I actually had time to watch the "video build." I personally don't like this format. It is great that Andrew gives you tips and what to look out for during the build, but I don't think the built kit spinning in the foreground is any help at all. It would be much more helpful to see the sprues laid out, the decals, PE, etc.; what exactly is in the kit. Some actual in-process pics would be good too. How about showing painting/finishing options? It is a good overall effort, but needs some more substance of the actual kit and build to be of any real value.
