I Finally finished something. This was a Dragon kit with more tiny detail parts and photo etch than I normally want to deal with. Overall it is a good kit if you have 300 power lenses and micro tweezers.
I used a variety of stowage add ons from Preiser figures and other resin accessories. I used wire for the tie down rope.
I scratch built a rack on the turret for spare water or fuel cans.
I also wrapped my own tow cable from #14 ga SIS control wiring.

In the early days of US armor almost anything was possible and was tried. Here is my rendition of the M2A3. Built using scratch built turrets and engine air louvers, conversion parts from resin companies and a base kit from Academy, I was able to piece together a convincing "Mae West". The markings are from the pre-WWII Louisiana War Games. Thanks to Keith M. and Mike W. for contributions of reference materials and Kevin G. for his US armor expertise.
