Folks,

Does anyone have a link to a good close-up picture showing the front of the searchlight on a Sherman turret-top? The instructions for the kit I'm working on don't indicate to paint the area of what what I assume to be the lens any particular color to simulate glass so I'm trying to determine the reason for this.

TIA!

Rick

Here's another link. The previous one posted didn't work for me.
