Howdy,

How does the shield attach to the 37mm anti tank gun on the M6/W55? Trying to finish a long time project with the 1/35 AFV Club WC51 kit. Any info you can share would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I know the man that restored/rebuilt that truck. I welded on the frame front sections that hold on the winch many years ago. The chassis is an original that had been converted back to the normal 3/4 ton truck configuration.

I remember he had a manual that showed everything you need for the gun mount.
