AFV Club 1/35 s ale M109A2

By Michael Scharf
Published: July 1, 2013

The M109 series of vehicles has been in American service since the Vietnam War and has soldiered on for the U.S. while being exported worldwide. In the 1970s, a new design was developed as the A2 variant. 

AFV Club’s multimedia 1/35 scale kit includes photoetched metal, a turned-metal barrel, brass tube, vinyl parts, and a nylon string, as well as plastic parts molded in olive green and clear plastic. There is some flash on a few of the smaller parts. The hatches are molded separately with detail on the inside, but the only interior detail is the gun breech. There are four marking choices: two for U.S. service, an Egyptian vehicle, and a Portuguese.
