Response to Sherman M4A3 76mm gun

I assume this is a conversion with the old Italeri 76mm turret on the Tamiya chassis? If so, it results in a couple of minor issues in case any one else considers this neat tank. The italeri turret was modeled from a demilitarized tank so the gun tube had been cut and welded. Italeri faithfully reproduced this step in the barrel, which should be smooth and not staggered. And, Tamiya confused the M4A2 which had applique armor plates and internal "dry" ammo stowage with the M4A3 which had "wet" stowage and no hull add on armor. So the hull add on armor are not suitable for this tank.
