Does anyone have a dimensioned drawing of the .50 cal amo boxes that were attached to the post mounts for the single and dual .50 mounts often seen on PT Boat bow configurations?

Sorry Steve, couldn't resist... :-}I have a number of actual TMs in my library, as well as a CD on the M45 quad mount (Maxxon), one of which was mounted on PT 195.

PT 156 had a Maxon Quad mount on the stern. It was supplied by my father-in-law, Lt. Col. James Grant Burgess. I am currently modeling this in 1/72 scale.
