All the extra attention to detail and stowage look pretty good. Hope the paint goes on without a hitch.

There were just four of these tanks deployed in Europe. Two of them were used in action by an independent tank batallion. I'll dig up the info I have.

Cheers, MartinD

One even made it to Israel to be converted into an M50! Too bad that would entail losing most of the expensive resin to make it.

Two Shermans were used by 739th TB, during the assault at the Julich citadel. This is the only known use of them.
Markings were very simple, as was the case with independent batallions. Just the bumper codes, and stars on the turret. Note however that one of the tanks had the later, one piece rounded transmission cover. The other is not seen from the front, so the three piece is an option.

Cheers, MartinD
