TAKOM M3 LEE EARLY AS "LULUBELLE''
built by Scott Guay
The Pepper Pot exhausts on the Takom Lee is wrong for tanks shipped overseas, they were removed due to they heated up the rear deck like a stove, which was of course not great for vehicle crews. North Africa shipped vehicles had the M4 style exhaust and square air cleaners (pic 1 m3leerear2). Next pic shows Lulubelle which had the quick fix for the Pepper box exhaust (It was noted that these were training vehicles), last pic was Steve Zaloga's M3 LuluBelle build. So if we build N.Africa Lees/Grants we need to use the M4 style exhaust and air cleaners. Good thing is, if you look at pic 1 they just covered the exhaust hole, instead of replacing the rear panel.
