FirstLook

 

Defensive guns are often poorly represented in injected kits. This is in part due to moulding limitations, but also it frequently seems that a near enough is good enough attitude has prevailed at the kit design stage when it come to guns. Some guns are more noticeable than others; and I think that WW2 German had-held defensive armament is amongst those that are. So it is pleasing to see Eduard have released some beautifully crafted MG 81Z’s as part of their Brassin range.

The pair of paired-guns come attractively packaged in a blister pack with sponge cushioning. Very clear instructions are included, with colour call-outs cross-referenced to the Gunze Aqueous, Mr Color, and Mr Metal Colour paint ranges. The parts should be very easy to remove from the pour stubs.

Eduard has captured the gun’s characteristics very well, and the quality of casting is exquisite.

 

 

Conclusion

 

These are excellent replacement MG 81Zs, and definitely recommended.

Thanks to Eduard for the samples.
