|Gentlemen of the Forum,
As much as I have tried to resist, I am in the market for more of the early GHQ M551 Sheridan. This is the one without the turret 50cal armored basket. I have plans for more unit types than I have Sheridans for, particularly the earlier ones without the basket.
For those of you saddled with Brand-X M551 models, I recently compared them with the current GHQ model (with the armored basket). The hull size of the current GHQ Sheridan is very close to the Brand-X hull. Purchasing GHQ Sheridan turrets would offer a significant upgrade to your Brand-X Sheridans. It's certainly on my list. You will need a solution for the greater circumference of the Brand-X turret mounting hole. I plan to use the "pin" solution.
Thanks in advance for your help.
All blessings flow from a good mission statement.
