If anyone nearby has a Tasca M4A1 DV kit, in US markings, then the turret stowage box is an unused part. Maybe try your mates nearby?

The the detail on that Ultracast stowage box is impressive. I'm buiding the Dragon El Alamein Sherman now and the included stowage basket doesn't have the same detail at the top of the basket as the Ultracast does. Also, the top piece of the Dragon kit's basket overhangs the sides of the lower piece a little bit. Is it possible that the Dragon kit models a different basket or is one just wrong?

has (had??) a set. Numbber 346 and it includes the box you are looking for. I think the set was called Tank Tool, Equipment & Ammo Boxes (US & British). Might be able to find one on e-bay. I'd offer you mine, but I have no clue where it is after my move last year.
