A few weeks back I posted regarding the potential to have these barrels manufatured in 1/35 scale. I have some updated information on that now. A new estimate has come in for these parts to be made in aluminum, not brass, saving a little weight. The cost is also less, so I would be able to sell them for $12 each (down from $15 originally). Shipping would be $6 in the US for any number of parts. International orders will vary by weight, but figure $10 to $13.50 depending on speed of shipping. If you think that you would ever want to build a Chilean M50 Sherman or M24 Chaffee with one of these guns, please contact me at [email protected] If market demand supports this, the manufaturing lead time is four weeks from my machine shop supplier. Thanks!
