an Academy M51 Isherman

Are you going to change the 105mm, because the muzzle brake is way too big?

I'm not a Sherman expert, well I don't know squad about Shermans that is but yes it has this goofy flat muzzle brake. I think it's supposed to be a 

French 105mm and it does look way too big. What should it look like?

Here you go Lloyd. There are some really good photos on this site.

If you are interested, I've got a complete sprue of the turret and gun from Tamiya's M51. I used the rest of the kit to build my M1 Super Sherman.

Thanks John

 

That sure is an ugly blob on the end of that gun. Wonder why it wasn't just he more

normal brake like the German WWII style. Maybe they needed more recoil damping

don't know but sure is ugly. I'll see what I can do to mod the Academy brake.
