Looking at this interesting interesting picture of a 3rd AD on the Shadock Sherman Minutiae site I wonder if anyone knows what the block like object is on the rear deck

Could it be a wooden gun rest, presumably used for overseas transport?

best regards,

I thought that.

But it looks a little low and too close to be effective.
Just a thought.

Cheers

Yes Jesse I think you may be right. It's the right size. It's the shadows on the form that were throwing me off

Surprised no one commented on the turret

June 17 2012, 4:26 AM 

With the reversed Hatches, the split hatch and All Vision cupola reversed. I agree about the .50 can. looks deformed in the fire

Whats the 4th ID patch signify? Four 2nd Lt's all pointing North.....

Turret

June 17 2012, 6:00 AM 

That's the reason I want to build this tank Sean. If you look at the website it has more info on the turret such it lacks the turret ventilator and also has the machince gun travel brackets mounted lower on the turret rear
