I remember seeing somewhere that MV Lenses that are common with our RailRoading brethren, are used to replace the bogus offerings on Sherman tanks.
Does anyone know what the size lense is? My local hobby shop has them on sale 2 for $1. They usually cost (at least from this store) 1 for $1.

Clausen, bearing in mind that these are model railroad accessories, any online model railroad shop will probably have them.
This is one of many: Discount Trains Online.com

Is there a list like this http://www.usarmymodels.com/ARTICLES/mvlenslist.html for modern subjects? I'd like to know lens dimensions for Tamiya's T-55...
