My Scratchbuilt M-5 High Speed Tractors towing a Hasbro 155 Howitzer.

I actually have 2 of these awesome HST's and 3 of the 155's with crews. T. HST's were both built by Sparky22856. He is a real perfectionist. There are over 500 brass bolts and tie downs on each one of them.

Thank you! I will keep posting photos of other vehicles that I have in my Collection. Also, I am waiting on a friend to post up pictures of the Family Day event at the WWII National D-Day Memorial in Bedford VA, just two weeks ago. As soon as I have access to them, I will post them here. We did do a huge diorama.

Here is a Picture of my second HST with 155 Howitzer in tow. It has the canvas and metal troop cover. The first one has the top off of it. There is an M-2 .50 Cal mounted on the metal portion of the top. I have a Chaplain in the upper right of the photo, blessing the vehicle and troops before battle.

I hope to be going again next year. If I do, I will let you know. I am planning to at this time, but, who knows what can happen between now and then. Consider yourself invited! I know that David wants to go next year as well. so this would be a great idea for us to get together.

I spent the best part of my winter lay-off slaving over those beasts. LOL. The wife was happy to get her kitchen table back when I was done and shipped them off to Jack,
