M26 depot storage

Response to Can an m26 pershing be used in a desert theme in Koria?

If it's just that you want to do a desert terrain base, and not a paint scheme, you might want to do a tank in depot storage at Barstow, California. Prior to the Korean War USMC stocks of these vehicles were stored in the Mojave desert. They were stripped of all the OVM gear (external stores) which were crated separately, had things like muzzles plugged and periscope opening closed, and parked there. In 1950 they were hastily pulled out of storage and sent to Korea.

Might make an interesting diorama, a forlorn tank with just the yellow USMC serial number and lots of dust.
