Resicast have just released a breech for the 17pdr At gun. The breech is designed for the Tasca Firefly.
This is a long overdue AM part for all those empty Firefly turrets, and should be a welcome addition to the Sherman range of AM products.
The set comes in the standard Resicast small sturdy box which shows the details of the manufacturer and producer on the top along with two black and white photographs of the built part.
Inside is an A4 four page set of instructions and 3 plastic zip bags containing the parts. The parts are cast in a light cream coloured resin and look sharp with good detail.
The build parts consists of Trunion, Breech, Breech Block, Handle, Spring Case, Left and Right fixed guards, Right hand Guard Rear, Rear Guard Section, Left Hand upper Arm and Left Hand Lower Arm.
The instructions show positioning when in full recoil and normal setting.
Normal safety precautions apply when working with resin.
A very useful AM product, allowing the modeller to leave the top hatches open without that big black hole to nowhere.
I have been hoping for one of thses for some time and I'm delighted to see this set arrive.
SUMMARY Highs: Excellent addition for Sherman Fans. Lows: None I can think of. Verdict: Highly Recommended. 87%
