Response to Meng M3A3 backdate
You need to remove all the A3 parts. Firstly, build it without the CITV (large structure on turret right rear). In its place, add back a vision block. Add back a full-length turret bustle rack. You also need to remove all the added armor plates on the hull and turret top. Remove the DVE (Driver's Vision Enhancer) on the front glacis plate. Around the driver's hatch are a couple of added bars that protect the hatch that need to be removed. Also, around the turret base are a series of guards that need to be removed. Etc, etc, etc.
I am sure I missed some other features as well. Basically, you would need to strip the hull back to nothing like in the Tamiya and Academy M2A2 kits.
It would be better and easier to add the M3 specific parts (roof-top TOW loader's hatch and rear ramp without gun ports) to an Academy M2A2 kit to make it an M3A2.
