Modeling the Sherman Tank in 1/72nd Scale

76mm Gun Barrel
Kit #72734

Article by Doug Chaltry; last updated 17 November 2007.

The scan above is of the 76mm gun barrel from one of my ARMO turret conversion kits. This barrel is also sold separately, and I assume it is the same as the one pictured here. Measuring from the base of the gun, not including the portion that fits inside the rotor shield, this piece measures perfectly to 1/72nd scale. Early versions of this replacement barrel were direct copies of the Revell 76mm kit barrel, which was horribly inaccurate, but it has since been revised to the perfect example shown above.
