Took a whole series on the M3A3 'ol Kentucky' today. Interior is unbelievable. My first time in this vehicle.



I'll post individual detailed shots later, if anyone is interested.

Today, in a driving rain storm, the M3A3 'Lee' was moved back into the museum as part of the display upgrades for the 'inter-war' period.



I took a few more interior photos

Turret views:

She was one of the 'runners' for a few years, following the full restoration, but decisions were made to include her within the museum for display.

A few years ago, she was removed from the museum and put in storage. Considered a 'runner', but in non-operational condition, requiring some mechanical 'repair'.

Don,
Thanks for the pics! I was totally unaware of its history from that plaque!

Did you get the SN off that data plate? All I have is the original RN (not the same as the painted RN)...

I can't believe I didn't take pics of the tow lug, but I think the SN is 1096. I'll check on this, and let you know.

Looks like it should also be on that dataplate - do you have a high-res blow-up of it? Might be able to just get it off that...
