I have been playing with the Halftrack for a few weeks, I have managed to find a 105mm Howitzer and always liked the T19 Halftracks,
so I wanted to try and make something looking similar to a T19 but I don’t want to mess with the original M16 body or armour
(I might want to convert back to M16 one day), so this is going to be a compromise (winch instead of roller,
no rear door and keep the windscreen armour down at all times). Anyway this how far we have got.

Started to make the mount for the gun, 10mm plate so it can take the weight when the gun is elevated.

I think the halftrack is better built than that cottage. That's a fair old chance of metal to have just above your head if you need to do an emergency stop, tho' Embarassed
