Can anyone give any info on the color and equipment of these tanks. I have Verlinden's conversion, but no info. Thanks

First. let me be the first to welcome you and invite you to make this your modeling home on the web.

External color would have been standard (if there is such a thing) WWII US OD. Surfaces visible from the outside shoud be a repaint of the body color, but a perfect match might not be warranted as this was a field conversion. Seats, radios, etc. would be standard colors for that equipment. There are few reerences on this vehicle, even Squadron's Stuart in Action has only one less than ideal B&W shot. I don't know if Hunicutt's book on light tanks has anything more, either. (This is a soon to be project as part of a collection of Stuarts that got pretty much filled out at Noreastcon last weekend.)

I have been working on one for 6 months. If there are any refs on line they are well hidden.
The upside is that you can do what you want and no one can prove you wrong.
If you find anything, let me know.
