I thank Marco for the Bovington JT roof photos. They are very clear. Therefore, it raise another question that intrigue me quite a while:

The short vertical bar welded on the central front (or to me, at back) of the left side periscope guard. What is it and what for?
(Sorry Marco for borrowing your photo)

Also to each and every JT lover, if you know the answer, please share with us.

Not a photo, but a line drawing of KT (same as JT) from bottom. Does anybody know what these four plates are for? Do they have anything to do with four bump stops?

Only KT and JT have these reinforced plates. Neither Tiger 1 nor Panther has them (at least that is what I know).
Does anybody have any more info?

I have only seen two KT builders (Steve Norris & Martin Hofmann) had added these plates, and many other details.
