    Chuck,

    The MBs, GPWs and M-38s did not have the drain holes on the side near the step like the 2As, 3As, 3Bs, and DJ-3As.

    That said, MBs and GPWs did have drain holes in the floor, along with brass plugs. You can imagine it might not be easy to locate and remove a brass plug once the floor of an MB was full of dirt/mud/water: https://forums.g503.com/viewtopic.php?f=95&t=166005&sid=6904979909d1e29a7601da0c8c810f2b

    For the M-38 and M-38A1, new drain holes were introduced. The drain holes had a cover on the floor that rotated. Here’s a replacement pan that has them on the right and left side

    I’m impressed. Not with the drain holes but that you have a PhD in Drainholalogy! Lol.
    Actually that was pretty interesting, thanks for the links; I learned a lot.

    It was a good question and I think this topic is worthy of a post. I will have to see what the prototypes did for drainage.
