FINALLY! well here you go this is the Dragon M1A2 sep with the DEF v.2 conversion and the DEF MCR attachment. I'm also using the Bronco indy tracks. Still got lots to do but it's coming along nicely.

The front fenders from M1A1 version, that is not very accurate. A little bit of putty will solve the problem out

ACTUALLY... if you knew anything about the M1A2 SEP v.2 or any M1 for that matter you would know that both types of fenders are used. Anything else not accurate?

On the M1 you can have mismatched fenders some are smooth some are dimpled- it's actually reinforcing creases. Like I said it's all good. I'll tell you with military vehicles you can see ANYTHING! It's easier to find your subject model and build it like that...if you want accuracy on a specific vehicle, otherwise there really isn't accuracy or inaccuracy. Anything is possible.
