I am looking for someone who might know where I can get 7.5 cm rounds and shells in 1/72nd scale? Does anybody know of such a company?

If you're going to have them in Mk 4 ammo bins, probably your best bet would be to cut fine plastic rod. A KwK 40 round is only about 2/3 the length of a Tiger 1 88shell. There was an English company that made some 1/76 and 1/72 shells for AT and AA guns, but I haven't heard anything about them for several years now. :-)

blue bear,
Thank you for the information I had recieved an e-mail [junk mail] from a company by the name of HEAVY STEEL. So I looked them up on line to see if they had the rounds and shells that I am looking for, and they told me that they have them in Brass. both shells and rounds for $10.00 +shipping. Have you heard of this company?

I'ld double check to be sure of the scale on those, several companies have shells in 1/35, but few in 1/72, 1/76
