I know that the measurements for the M777 are not still classified, as there has been a resin and pewter collector's model. The problem is, it comes assembled and at a high price. I have several reference photos to work from. However, I can find no specific measurement of the howitzer other than its caliber. Can someone please provide me with the length of the barrel, diameter of a wheel or similar? If successful, I will attempt to coerce a manufacture into picking it up for all modelers to enjoy.

The specific tires will be of great use.

I have amassed a collection of photos of the M77, but would like any others out there. I have exhausted Google and Yahoo.
