Eduard Tiger I gun barrel in turned
by Frank De Sisto
Contains one turned aluminum part. Price: $12.95 USD.
Eduard continues to release aluminum gun tubes for popular kits. Certainly,
any kit of a Tiger I would qualify under that heading! This particular
8.8cm Kwk 36 L/56 gun tube is sized and notched to fit the Academy kit.
It is cleanly turned and includes integral, fully drilled-out muzzle
break. It appears to be visually accurate and is a near drop fit onto
plans published in the highly respected “Panzer Tracts” book
on German heavy tanks. It is relatively low-cost and will save time for
the veteran modeler, while easing the task for the novice.
Eduard products are available at retail and mail order shops and directly
