First Look

LionMarc Model Designs turns out some very impressive aftermarket details for the armor modeler. This is probably the most impressive set I've seen to date!

17 Pounder Barrel for Sherman Firefly

This set consists of a turned aluminum barrel, a brass muzzle brake, and a small metal spacer. Simply cyano the lot together and plug the barrel into the mount where the original kit barrel would go.

This set provides a straight, solid, seamless barrel assembly. The end of the aluminum barrel is hollowed out for a fraction of an inch, so when you look down the muzzle, you'll see down the barrel into the darkness.

My sincere thanks to Wings n Treads ( for this review sample. Check out the other LionMarc as well as other cool aftermarket products that they carry!
