Yeah i have seen that Sherman in Wainwright, I think but i'm not sure its an 
easy eight. It does look nice. I should take a look and about 100 pics of 
it, as now it would help greatly to have the access, well maybe in the 
summer i can get a look at it.

bidding. I have played with 3 diffrent suspension ideas now and none of them 
are gonna work, they all work mechanically but they have that two big for

wrong i'm not that hooked on the historical accuracy - i am the TYNG trak 
design, but i would like it to look reasonable. Ah maybe i should just use 
one design and make it look historical.

After remeasuring my turret, it won't work, i goofed and its to big, by 
about 2 inchs all around, so i'm going to finish this one fibreglass it and 
see how the fibreglassing works. Then i'll make another one, i did learn one 
thing, i should have used thicker foam, i sanded through or cut through in 
alot of places.
