Another Sherman-based civilian crane
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

Terrific vehicle. I wonder if we'll see a point where these post war converions are as treasured as the vehicles they were based on?

It's from this site:
http://picasaweb.google.com/Lsmithtwin/LifeAtLeTourneauCollege19601963#
Life at LeTourneau. There's pics on the site of the Land Train as well as some scrap Sherman's. The crane has the classic LeTourneau cab used on many of their earth moving equipment. The cab can also be seen on a U.S. Army missile transporter, I don't remember what the designation was, I think Renwal did a kit of it.

Some very interesting pics there. Lot's of shots of the "Land Train" and the "Sno Train", well into the album.

Ol' R.G. Tourneau sure flew in style, I loved all the pics of his personal A-26 conversion. Nice for a guy that looked like the ultimate curmudgeon.

I bet they still argue about who bunged the fender on that '57 Chevy two-door. Laughing

Dear Colleagues,
I talked with Mr. L.S., who posted the photos in Picasaweb. Expressed interest in discussing the Com-Central. I hope the Mr. L.S. answer the questions here.
