Looks like an early Baldwin, though Baldwin never dropped the DV ports... Even on the 1944 production M4s they made.  That tank probably has an intersting history considering how old it was in 44.  Colorisering is getting really good is it done by hand or a program?

All I'm going to say is that there are some pretty talented people colorizing photos in that group.

Join up on BM and sign up for the GB, as I said, you would be very welcome (it's a sociable sort of place and much more cosmopolitan than the name implies).....I pretty much guarantee someone will either have a spare set of the tracks you need, or will be able to point you toward what you need as an aftermarket product.

I'll sign up at the forum, but I don't have the space to build right now, it should be fun to watch though.
