...Applique/additional armour on the hull side? Interesting...

This is mine so far - the Mr Surfacer is to blend the various add-on structures into the hull. Great kit but LOTS of parts and a few vague part-fits.

there was a batch of M4A1 hull made, which had the 'applique' integrated in the mould.
Nice find Jelle, and good work on the kit so far Marcus!

Best, Martin

Hi Martin
In the wartime pic, it looks like the vehicle has T51 tracks; I wonder how common this was on the M32B1? Also, I wonder what the emblem is in the white square, behind the '58'? I'm guessing the vehicle name is 'Be Careful Honey' - would make a nice decal set for, say, Archer, to issue for the Tasca kit...

I'd say they're T51 tracks too.

I think there's an emblem or cartoon behind the number. 6thAD vehicles often had the Armoured Triangle painted on their vehicles as a logo, like Aquino, an M4A3E2 from 15thTB.

If you look on page two of the forum, you will see the cartoon on a Sherman, halftrack, and jeep. It appears to be a black wolfs head over the armored triangle. .

Great Find!!
This mount belongs to B company, 15th tank. Also unusual is the hull number(58)which was usually reserved for 105mm Shermans (14, 15, 16, 38, 58 and 78). The wolfhead insignia is available from Archer and Bison.
Thanks again for digging this jem up.

Glad to hear that you al find it an interesting find,it is for sure an interesting M32B1 TRV.

Marcus your Tasca M32B1 is coming along nicely and Paul thanks for the second photo,it is nice to have an picture of this M32B1 from another angle.

I will soon begin on one of my own Tasca M32B1 kits,I am for sure an so called Shermanholic and the M32 TRV variants as used in WW2 are my favorit types of Shermans.
I have more then one of these awesome kits in my stash for future projects.
The one I will be building first wil be the type as per kit,I wil be using an CMK Sherman M4A1 drivers compartment kit and an Voyager etch set wich is intended for the Tasca M4A1 mid production kit.
Or I wil use an dedicated etch set for the Tasca M32B1 kit when it comes out in time before I have started building this kit.
And Modelkasten tracks wil also be used,I got one of those Tasca jigs for building Tasca Sherman tracks and I am curious about the use of it.

Glad to be of service and all the best for now,

Jelle.

ps-Martin ben jij al bezig met jouw Tasca M32B1 kit want dit is gewoon een kit die je als Sherman liefhebber moet hebben en het kan gewoon niet anders dan jij deze kit ook al hebt.
