Hey, I bought a HOBBY BOSS T26E4 last year and put on shelf. Started it last week and discovered that the (L) sprue is NOT with the kit. This sprue holds the barrel halves and the counter weight. Now I can work around the counter weight but I need the barrel. If anyone has this kit and replaced the barrel with metal OR has the metal barrel OR knows where it can be found now PLEASE let me know. Paying USD for this part so make a buck!!! Thanks !!!!!
PS...I know contact Hobby Boss....their customer service has to rate on the whale crap meter as a minus! Same for AFV Club....

Have you thought of going metal?

T26E4, the long 90mm gun, right? Not sure if the 'E4 barrel is the same as the "Super", but I used the RB models barrel on a recent build of a "Super". If that's what you're looking for I may have the HobbyBoss Super Pershing" kit barrel stashed in my M26 spares, I can look.
Be aware that the RB models barrel does not have the groove along the top of the base of the barrel, so if you're a stickler for those kind of details, you'll have to add it yourself.
