Hi All
I've been browsing the many pictures on the Tank Museum's Facebook page
http://www.facebook.com/tankmuseum/photos?ref=ts

A gentleman called Lawrence Kelly has posted ths very interesting shot of some Grant CDLS (For discussion purposes only)

I've nabbed a copy and popped it onto my photobucket account. I just wanted to draw attention to the photo but couldn't link directly to it. If this is not acceptable I'll delete the copy straight away.

Someone with an interest in researching CDL's might have a unique opportunity here as the posters' grandfather took the photo. It's worth looking through the rest of the photo's too.

Many Thanks
Owen

Hi
The pic above looks similar countryside etc. to the ones I have, as used in India, late War / 46. My wife's old boss (Sue Burton) in Derby Tax Office lent me her Dad's wartime photo Album. It includes Sherman M32 ARV (like Italeri's kit) and IIRC, Shermans. Some are on railway flat wagons. I'm sure some CDL are on cast hulls too.

Although I photocopied, the quality wasn't brill - but I have a chance to scan them soon when on a break, and hopefully upload them - so perhaps we can tweak them or make larger.

I'd love to try to get better copies, but the evidence is there.

Cheers
Andrew

use the finest resolution you can get when making the images. It will alow the greatest chances of enlarging and enhancing. If you are thinking of doing more than simple enhancement, TIFF files are humongeous, but have all the raw data from the scan and are a better place to start for more thorough enhancements.

Just a couple points.

BTW, I'm looking forward to these scans as these photos are intriquing.
