T23 Turret for 76mm Sherman
(designed for Dragon DRA75046 Sherman M4A3 body)
History: When the 76 mm gun was first installed in the M4 turret, mounting this gun in the original M4 turret proved to be problematic, and so the larger turret from the aborted T23 tank project was used instead for the definitive production version of the 76 mm M4 Sherman.
This 'early' turret is designed to fit into the DRA75046 Sherman M4A3 kit from Dragon Models. The late turret usually have the oval gunner's hatch, which can be modified on this kit.
Material: Polyester Resin (a form of Fiberglass) with a coat of grey gel coat. Easy to Bondo or Glue
Includes the following E.C.A accessories ($209 value):
Further detailing sets can be acquired directly from E.C.A (click here). Many thanks to John for his collaborative work on this project, including texturing of the turret and mantlet, and sharing - under agreement - of his detailing parts.

This is a big investment for a Sherman build but I opted for it and I wasn't disappointed. The cast texture is very nice and the turret is very strong. It adds a bit of weight to the kit but I did not have any trouble with it on mine and I have the RC Sherman. The turret still floats nicely on the rotation ring. I was only hesitant about the price, but the quality is excellent and in my opinion it is worth the investment.
