Eduard US 37mm gun tube for AFV
Club M3A3 Stuart, in 1/35 scale turned aluminum (34048)
by Frank De Sisto
Hot on the heels of the recent US 37mm gun tailored for the Academy M3/M3A1
kits, Eduard has also come up with a gun tube for the recent AFV Club
M3A3. This is rather puzzling, since the AFV Club kit already provides
a composite plastic/ turned aluminum gun tube with the kit.
Regardless, this gun tube is well done and cleanly turned. It features
the flare at the muzzle end and the grooves seen at the front end of its
collar. It can be used on a variety of kits of vehicles that were fitted
with this gun such as the M8 and Staghound armored cars, resin or scratch-built
M22 airborne light tanks, LVT(A)1 amphibious tanks, any M3 medium tank
variation and, of course, any M3 or M5 light tank variant.
