Does ModelCollect's E-50 Jagdpanther come with a metal barrel?

I have been thinking about getting one of their 1946 models (72070 E-50 Jagdpanther) but can't find any information on if it really includes a metal barrel. The boxart says it does but I know Modelcollect has had problems in the past. eBay sales only show the box and Henk's webpage has some nice sprue scans of the plastic from a source in the Ukraine but no instruction sheets. Does anyone have one of these yet?

Thanks in advance,
Jeff

I don't think it does, either that or they forgot to take a picture of it.

Which ones don't? Do their boxes say they have metal barrels?

At least not anywhere I can see. So I suppose there's the definite answer

Other than the one the OP mentioned one of the E-75's that doesn't show one either.

I guess Modelcollect's plans changed. This is the boxart from Henk's webpage and the e-shop I was thinking about buying the kit from:


You can see it's different from Hobbyterra's site. Maybe there was a problem with the barrels or it wasn't cost-effective to include them? Glad I asked. Thanks again.

They may have either deleted it or added it on a later run. I'd would expect if it says it has it on the box it should be there but I'd contact the shop before buying it and asking them to check if you really want it.
