Nice exhibit showing a closed up top, thanks! I assume this M32B1 is ex- Taiwanese Army? Cheers, Christophe

It has a TC cupula as well. And it's an M32B1. The M32 was based on a welded hull radical engine M4 Sherman.

The TC cupula is mounted off-center with a MG mount next to it. It's also missing the front tow bracket which probably happened when the differential was changed at some point.

Great Walkaround. I am getting ready to start a build of the italeri Kit using the Tamiya M4a3 hull.

Hi Wow, fantastic walkaround indeed. Thanks, thanks a lot. It's great. This vehicle is really special. As far as I know it's the only one preserved showing a modification in the ring-mount in the roof. I had some pictures of this vehicle but this is the best collection I've seen I would like to make some questions. First ... where is it exactly preserved? and when were the pictures taken? . I'm trying to make a database of the M32xx preserved. As I said, the modification in the ring-mount in the roof of the turret it's very special. I have some pictures of other vehicles with the same modification, but up to now, I never saw clearly how it was. Now it's revealed Great work. Do you have easy access to the vehicle. It would be posible having aditional info of the vehicle? Cheers

Hi cuchoramone, Well this vehicle displayed in a military camp near Chi-Chi in the middle of Taiwan. I am sorry I don't know its formal name in English. These picture were taken years ago in its opening day. Since it was displayed in a military base, it did not open for the public. But this base has a opening day for public. Once a year maybe. Hope this helps. Cheers Ken
