German 50mm KwK 39 L/60
Pz.III Ausf.J (Late), L, M

#35 L-33
Review by Terry Ashley

This simple one piece barrel is designed for the Tamiya Panzer III Ausf.L (Kit #35215) and has the full length barrel with rifling inside the breech plus a brass inner breech block already attached which adds additional details to the kit breech when assembled to offer a bit more than just the barrel.

Assembly only requires the Tamiya kit parts (C29, C30) to have the barrel cut off level with the front of the breech and the resulting square opening accepts the square breech on the ABER barrel without further modification.

After gluing the Tamiya breech halves together you have nice inner details for the breech as well as the barrel that fits though the kit mantlet parts without further modification for the simplest of updates.

A simple update set that not only gives you the barrel but additional breech details that will greatly improve the Tamiya kit with a minimum of effort.

Highly recommended
