Thundering Jesus, dude! Why didn't you make mention that you needed these items before I sent you the T-23 turret? Anyway, as you are building an M4A3 with a 76mm gun, I guess you are looking for the long 76mm barrel with the small brake/fitting at the end. If so, I have a turned metal barrel that fits the bill. I cannot recall who manufactured this barrel or what kit it was made for, but I doubt you having any trouble fitting it to your Sherman. Just in case, it does come with a resin T-23 manlet that the barrel fits perfectly into. Either way, it should fit and it is yours if you want it.
As far as the spent 50. cal shells, Great Models no longer has them in stock. I do have a set of the Mission Model's spent 50. cal shells though, well sort of. I used most of them on my last two projects, but I still have five spent shells left with a full compliment of links. Once again, yours for the asking. I also have two sets of Mission Model's spent 20mm shells. They are slightly bigger in both length and diameter than the 50.cal shells, but the difference is hardly noticeable, especially if you are just going to place them about the turret/hull as though the 50.cal was just fired. No links, but I will send you a set if you can use them. I also have a set of Mission Models full 50. cal shells with links. If you are feeling productive, you can snip off the ends and drill them out a bit, that should work.
Anyway, e-mail me and let me know what you want to do. It might also behoove you to see if there is anything else you need for your Sherman project, that is not readily available in Norway, if I have it, I'll be more than happy to hook you up.
