Did anyone happen to get photos of the M4A1(76) HVSS (particularly the turret) that was in the Ordnance Museum parking lot before it left? This tank had a rare turret "brand" that I'd like to look at.

Thanks,
KL

It was Between a R-35 and an M6 when I was there. If you have photos of it after repainting I would appreciate it!

You would think the 1:1 guys could get it right. The judges will have to ding him for leaving that casting seam on the .50 cal mount.
