RB Barrels? How do I link the right barrel to kit?
Posted by Hinksy on Sunday, September 12, 2021 6:02 AM

Hi guys,

I'm starting modelling again after a 7 year break and my mind is very rusty!

ive got the new Tamiya Jagdpanzer Marder I (35370) kit on its way (Tamiya). I'd like to use an RB Barrel. I've studied the kit and I'm wondering if it's going to be possible to use an aftermarket barrel cos the kit barrel has a locator pin on it? Also I'm finding out I'm very rusty on working out what RB barrel to use for this kit. Can anyone help? I think it's a 75mm PAK 40 (RB#35B57).

thanks guys!

From  the description of kit and barrel,it sounds right, although not designed for that specific kit,it says generic,perhaps some surgery may be necessary ?

You could check with other vendors to see if they make a barrel just for your kit.  Have you checked in Scalemates?

A lot of the RB barrels are generic. I do like their barrels, but they are hard to get in the UK. A lot of their items are out of stock on their website, someone on Britmodeller did suggest they are going out of business, but there is nothing of their site to indicate it.

I would opt for 35B57, and its in stock on Models for sale.
