Modeling the Sherman Tank in 1/72nd Scale
76.2mm M7 Gun Barrel RB Model
Kit #72B29

The title on this barrel is a bit strange. Although it is labeled as a 76.2mm gun, this is actually the M7 3in gun for use on the M10 Tank Destroyer. It measures out perfectly to 1/72nd scale, however, it is lacking the flared tip that this barrel had. Granted, it's not likely to be noticable on the built model. Once again, the barrel is marred a bit by grooves in the metal left by the lathe. I plan on painting some Mr. Surfacer on mine, and then sanding it smooth. That should take care of the problem.
