M8 Gun motor carriage
Based on the M5, the M8 had an open turret and a much bigger 75mm main gun.
The M8 project has waited for a while, but it's time has come! Here it is getting flipped over so the bottom could be worked on. Needs more welding and metal put in. Quite a bit of work was done to already prior to documentation.
And now for some inspiration. Above is pictured a fully restored M8 that lives in Europe. My friend Alexis sent me many photos of his amazing tank. Including some of the restoration process. The lorry pictured above is loaded down! To the right is a nice shot of how to move 17 tons. Below is a shot of the tank before any work was done to it. Looks like it burned pretty badly. Note the road wheels.
Alexis, thanks for sharing your tank!
