Part 3 - Scale plans

While gathering reference material necessary to build my model of the M42 I encountered scale drawings which can be very useful while modifying the Tamiya's kit. While comparing this kit to the drawings, further problems with the kit's accuracy come to light, like the shape of the front portion of the hull, the measurements of the driver's and track commander's hatches, and also the shapes of the main armament equipment. I took the liberty of cleaning the drawings up and adjusting their scale as close to 1:35 as I could. I would like to use this opportunity to ask all the readers who have scale drawings of other equipment used by Americans in Vietnam to send them to me to my mailbox: pmroczko@pmroczko.nazwa.pl. Meanwhile I hope you will find the following drawings useful:
