I'm planning on building an M4A3E8 with the sandbag racks around the hull and turret but the only reference pic I've found is a slightly blurred black and white photo of the front and left side of a Sherman from the 45th tank battalion (I think). So do any of you have some clearer photos of similar shermans from some different angles?
Many thanks in advance!

Google 14th Armored Division tanks and you should get a lot! From what I've seen the racks were all home-made, from metal stips or angle-iron (or both), so it is best to pic a tank and replicate it since there is no definitive pattern that I know of. There's a classic shot of tank C-6 from 25th Regt with the racks added but empty!
