Here's an old 'studio' image
Here's a shot of the gunners. They look very, very young...
and this is from 1945. I want to use this as my starting point. I like the cylinders with all the ammo in it and I like how the stabilizers have been buried under plating. That will make it easier to create a model that I can just pull out for the occasional game. This gun also has the protective plating.
Hope you all can stay with me on this one!
