Keith,

As I recall the turret of the Tamiya T62 is off; they've simply modelled it wrong with a sort of "prow" towards the mantlet.

You might be able to salvage it with some judicious sawing/carving/puttying but I'm not enough of a conversion guru to help.

In the end, once they became available, I went for the Trumpeter version(s).

I'm probably not being much help here but there might be some "corrected" resin replacements out there somewhere.

Hi,
I've found some parts in one of my box which might be originated from a Tamiya T-62. Could you check that the sprocket in the picture is good to your model?
BR, Gábor
