M3 Medium 1942 refit?

I been thinking of doing an M3 Lee. I hope someone can help me with a photo or information please.

I recently saw a line sketch in a reference book of an M3 Lee with the heavy duty VVSS suspension, with the trailing return roller and the track skid, titled 1942 refit or something close (unfortunately I don't have the book with me right now). Except for a post war M31 ARV I have not been able to find a wartime photo of an M3, or an M31 or M33 prime mover upgraded with the later VVSS bogies.

Anyone help here? It'd make a cool model but I would like at least to be somewhat historically accurate.

Thanks in advance.
