It's just raining M109s out there these days! Love the variety on this great piece of gear.

Be nice if they would do an interior, even if a separate kit like they did with the Sturmtiger. That way pairing the ammo carriers with the 109, so you could see inside both, would have more meaning. Then they can start on producing the M107 and M110 line....

I vaguely remember seeing the Bundeswehr deploying these at Camp Shilo near where I live though I don't remember them ever being in that shade of brown(?); we'd go out periodically and observe them on maneuvers back in the day before that unique situation ended and the camp was retasked as a Canadian Forces base once again. That sad day ended decades of use by the German Army here in Western Manitoba; the only place outside of Europe where Leopards did prowl with Marders as escorts.

Be advised the Black Dog interior kit for M109A2 has some workmanship issues. I am using the Black Dog kit #T35101 in an AFV Club M109A2 #AF35109 at the present and have spent considerable time repairing badly molded parts. This is my fifth resin kit from five different manufactures and by no means the worst; however, I expected better quality from Black Dog. Harold

I think that is supposed to represent early Gelb-Oliv, yellow-olive. I like RoG Revel Germany, early BundesWehr Gelb-Oliv & later BW Olivgrün, Olive-Green. These were the Pre-NATO 3 colour schemes. Both colours are available in enamel & Aqua acrylic, at least in the UK.

That's not entirely true - A3 retained some of the swim barrier mounting hardware from A1 on the hull (on hull sides and lower front plate). A2s left the factory without it. So it's cosmetic only difference, but it's there.[/quote] You are correct, but easy pieces to add as well.[/quote] or put the A2 cab on the 109 hull.

CFB Shilo was always a CF Base. GATES was just a lodger unit. Shilo is the Home Base of the Canadian Artillery. home to 3RCHA and then 1 RCHA. yes it was awesome watching the Leopards do their battle run.
