I finally figured out why the M7 Priest makes me cringe every time I look at it.

It sucks.

The gun is mounted on top of the superstructure instead of in it, its supposed to open topped and its not and the pulpit with a .50cal is not functional.

Wondering if it would be better to start from scratch.

I would consider this to be a very low priority project because there are other vehicles that need to be in game much more, like PzIII, KV-1, SU-152, etc.

I just never realized how screwed up the model was until the other day playing Gazala.

Yes.

Early Priests were converted from M3 hulls and were of riveted construction. They used the M3's early differential cover and suspension and track components.

Alll later M7's were based on Shermans and had welded hulls, used the Shermans 3 piece differential covers as well as the cast one piece and strengthened front covers and Sherman suspension components.

The M12 and the 155mm would be scary in FH. Can you imagine what the balst radius would be?
