Heres another build. This one is sort of an update of a few things I learned. On top of that, I’ve learned some new things about the actual history of the tank. For example, in 1953, the M41 was first deployed in Korea. Known as the T41, it was deployed apparently without proper gunnery training and a troublesome rangefinder. These issues were addressed later. However, it performed much better, as intended, than the M24 facing North Korean and Chinese T-34/85s. Interesting to look at. As per my last few builds, I searched the heck out of the tank for images. And I found a few! Excited to show y’all what I’m gonna do with this later. I picked up months ago a Tamiya 1/35 US sprue of weapons and helmets and bags to add to it. Should turn out cool, and adding stowage was chosen due to the following images, with the exception of the (apparently iconic) ammo crates since I couldn’t find any when I looked. Anyway, here we go! The first three are from the proving grounds.
