Modeling the Sherman Tank in 1/72nd Scale
105mm Sherman Howitzer Barrel ABER
Kit #72L-37
Article by Doug Chaltry; last updated 24 September 2011
Nicely shaped barrel, but be advised, it is very long. You can barely perceive in this scan the step in the barrel diameter several mm from the base of the barrel. This piece needs to be recessed into the rotor shield just up to about 1mm behind that step in the barrel. This won't be a problem for most plastic kits, but if you intend on using this part on a resin model, keep in mind you may need to do some drilling into the resin rotor shield. Other than that, this is an excellent piece.
