Adrian, or any other Sherman fan, Some of the casting numbers on Sherman bogies appear to be the date they were cast. Do you know if this is the case? Some of the IWM Sherman bogies are cast like the one below. The Bovington Firefly has 5-43 on the bogies.
Do you also know what reference numbers on the front transmission housing refer to?
The web is a wonderful thing! I've bookmarked that page, i know it's sad. My crew are almost ready, they are putting the final touches to the 19 set. All they need now is a Firefly from the tank arsenal in deepist Devon!
They had to stretch it to get the amazing lets-make-a-radial-engine-out-of-car-parts power plant into it. The M4A4 has also got a bulge top and bottom of the engine bay because it still wouldn't fit the Sherman hull
