Here's the story. I'm building a Tasca Firefly VC and I have Bronco's T62 track to go with it. I'd like to do one in NWE in the fall or winter of 1944. However, I want to use the T62 track , since I already have it and it looks really nice (at least still in the plastic bag).
So, I spent a good hour or two last night scouring my references for a picture of any Commonwealth Sherman with T62 tracks in the fall or winter of '44. I found lots of pictures of Shermans during that time period with either T54E1 or T48 track, most of which also had extended end connectors. However, I did not find a single picture of a Firefly, or any Sherman for that matter, outside of Normandy with T62 track.
Does anyone know of a photograph showing T62 later than about August, 1944? Was there a reason for replacing the T62 track after Normandy? If so, I guess I'll have to save my T62 track for another project and get T54E1 or T48 track for this one.
