Modeling the Sherman Tank in 1/72nd Scale

MR Models

Kit #7297

The scan above is of the 17 pdr gun barrel from my MR Models Firefly conversion kit. This barrel is also sold separately, and I assume it is the same as the one pictured here. The aftermarket barrel includes the muzzle brake molded in resin instead of white metal as shown here, which will make it much easier to drill out the exhaust holes. The barrel measures about 0.5mm too long, but that can probably be hidden in rotor shield.
