Further checking shows:
- T26 M1931 had two turrets with DT machine guns
- T26 M1932 had two turrets but one of them had 37mm gun and 2nd had DT mg

Should not be too difficult to add a second MG with mantlet to our sprue to create both variants!

Thank guys!  ;)

Good observation WeRT. It would appear most T-26's with twin turrets were only armed with machine guns. Nice response from Rubicon as well.

Page 6 of New Vanguard 218 has a tank labelled T26 model 1931 with museum recreations of the twin MG turrets. On the same page is an early 37mm PS1 turret without the additional mantlet armour.

On page 7 there is a twin MG turret picture but no identification.

I think it might be a bug...

M1931 had two turrets with DT machine guns.
M1932 had two turrets but one of them had 37mm gun and 2nd had DT mg.

So ... question:
Will you be able to build M1931 variant (2x DT mg's) with single box?

We have to double check on this. Might not be too late to add an extra DT MG if we are at fault.

 If you fit the gun guard in  , you can jam a no leg figure in there , the no leg part won't be seen  ;D. There is very little room in that turret in real life ,that gun divides it in half , I think the crew had to squirm out side ways as there is no room between hatch rim and gun guard for the width of  your waist/ shoulders . How the commander was able to hang half out of the turret and still look around the side of that hatch to view the ground ahead , I don't know

I’m able to order them from the UK distributor now (I’ll be placing my order at the weekend).

Nice.

Going to have to start looking for reference material.

PSC (at 0833Z) have the M4 (with box art) and both AT guns (no box art) on the New for January bit of the front page of their site.

The hybrid is not there yet. I suspect they are working on it, hence the missing box art.

Thanks Ripley.

The design of the mantlet does help as there is ample prongs to attach a breech and guard. I would probably cannibalise another spare PSC gun.

The problem is the intended commander has no legs.  I will post a photograph later.
