I’m working with someone to print the turrets.
Then I’ll upgrade all my existing ghq M1s
I wish ghq would offer upgrade turrets since I rather have metal.
CinC did with the M60A3 and I remember upgrading all my tanks way back.

Now if they would just do an -A1 turret I would have the M-2HB and the M-240 on the roof. I know they are in the GHQ packs but I cannot tell them from the flash. Even with reading glasses and a magnifying lens.

That LOOKS lije a 105mm gun, rather than a 120mm. Is that my misperception?

Actually large so I’ll claim it’s the new 130mm replacement gun.

Hmm….. what part is that? The designer was asking me about what can be improved on or some thing that was missing so let me know and I’ll pass it on

The armor panel covering the drive sprcket is te original configuration carried on the first M1 model. Mud buildup between the skirt and the sprocket caused a number of problems, including failed final drives and thrown. The immediate solution was to remove the panel but the permanent solution was a cutout on that panel that allowed the mud to escape.

Understand. An M1A3 would have the cutout. Look at the differebce between GHQ's M1, M1A1, and M1A2.
