Eduard 34002 T72 Barrel

Andrew Dextras

Eduard continues with it's new line of turned aluminum barrels with a release that is sure to please all fans of modern Soviet armour. 

Designed to fit Tamiya's T72M1 kit, although I'm sure it could be adapted to the Dragon releases as well as other vehicles which used this 125mm gun, Eduard has used it's expertise in photo etch to add some nice details.  One of the distinctive features of this barrel is the thermal shroud which is fastened using straps and clamps.  Eduard has reproduced this using photo etch, along with some a detailed ring at the front of bore evacuator and some longitudinal detail that runs atop the barrel. 

Length is spot on compared to the Tamiya barrel as is the diameter which should solve one of the major problems with the Dragon T72 series.  Hopefully Eduard will follow on to this release by giving us a new photo etch set for the Tamiya T72.

Highly recommended.
