Sherman turret query

Re: the low bustle 75mm turret, without the pistol port.

Was this configuration ONLY seen with cast-in cheek armor on the gunner's side?

Or could these features be seen independent of each other?

Or, did the turrets without the pistol port have the cast-in cheel armor at all?

I have the original Tasca Vc Firefly kit, but am going to model "Carole" w/ Archer dry transfers. It had no pistol port, so I have suitably modofied the kit part. However, it is difficult to tell from photos if it also had cast-in cheek armor. Any thoughts?

Thanks in advance,

Frank

This article off of Tim Streeter's site should be of help.

Looks like they all had the thickened cheek armor with no pistol port.
