Turret bin question

Post by Derek Attree » Fri Oct 04, 2013 11:39 am

Hi Guys
In the Armour photo gallery book of the comet
I noticed there is a rectangular flat plate on the rear
of the turret bin between the fire extinguishers.
Does anyone know what this is ?
I noticed Chris Fry fitted it to his model.

Thanks

Derek

hello Derek,
the plate was for the tank number to be painted on,
hope this helps you,
cheers, Chris.

Derek,Chris.

Number plate indeed and only seen on the Irish tanks. Not on the UK ones. Good to talk to you both at the Open Day. Stephen

I cant see if the plate is there but that's where the tank number would go.
