Product Description

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.
There were 3 main variants for the T23 turret.


The earliest T23 turrets that were installed on 76mm M4 Sherman directly came from the T23 production run. They can be recognized thanks to the extra lifting ring on the turret edge , that was suppressed on later turrets

 

The kit:

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):

  • Mantlet

  • Rear blower blister (Rear storage pintle not included)

  • Replacement shell ejection port hatch set

  • Commander's Cupola Late War with interior detail

  • Gunner's Split ring cupola kit

  • Lifting hooks set

  • Gunner's periscope guard box kit

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.
