M4 Series 76mm Mantlet w/ Dust Cover — Level (ASU)
76mm Mantlet with Canvas Dust Cover — Level (TAS-ASU)
This item allows you to add the canvas dust cover to the mantlet of your 76 mm Tasca/Asuka Sherman kit(s). It is designed for Tasca/Asuka kits 35-023 and 35-024, but can be added to other Tasca/Asuka 76 mm Sherman turrets, as well as all TMD 76 mm turret shells.
The masters were made from TAMIYA parts grafted onto TASCA/ASUKA parts. We DO NOT claim that it can be sued with any other manufacturer’s 76 mm Sherman, but this mantlet is cast in a way that should allow you to heat it in hot water and then form it to a Tamiya or Dragon turret shell. Even then, some additional work may be necessary to make it fit these other kits.
- Added canvas representation to mantlet face
- Added new attachment points
- Added new bolt heads and washer details to the bottom front mounting surface
