Gilmark Howitzer Carrier - OD HP

Here's the third of four Gilmark hard plastic Army vehicles they made from 1951 to mid-1950s, The Howitzer Carrier. Gilmark molded "HOWITZER CARRIER" underneath the hull so everyone would know what it was. "U.S. ARMY" with star was heat stamped in white on the right side of the hull only. I sure hope that howitzer is recoilless otherwise that crewman sitting right behind it is gonna be in a world of hurt! :-) The vehicle measures 3 1/4" (8.25cm) L x 1 5/8" (4.12cm) W x 1 3/4" (4.44cm) H. I'm missing the last vehicle in the series and it may be a while before I can snatch one up and post it but until then I'm sure we'll be able find other things to post. Until then - Enjoy!
