  1. MG-14/17 Parabellum WW1 Gun 1:48 Eduard Brassin Continuing their range of 1:48 WW1 machine guns in the Brassin range, Eduard have logically released a Parabellum MG-14/17 as a follow up to their MG14. The '/17' suffix was used in real life by the Germans to indicate that this is the revised 1917 version of the MG-14. The main visual difference is in the size of the barrel, which in this later version has a much reduced diameter slotted jacket. It also had other smaller modifications to make it easier to operate with gloved hands. MG-14/17's were used very widely on German multi seat aircraft throughout 1917 and 1918, particularly as the weapon for the rear gunner/observer on two seaters. The guns come in Eduards standard Brassin bubble pack, with parts for two complete models. The resin is to Eduard usual high standard, sharply moulded with very fine detail and no sign of any air bubbles. The gun barrels and sights have protective arms on the moulding blocks to keep them safe from damage until they reach your workbench. A pair of Oigee sights, ammo drums, and main bodies with barrels are provided. The brass fret contains the magazine drum ends and handles, sights, and mounting brackets for the Oigee sight. Thoughtfully, Eduard have provided the smaller parts in triplicate, so when the carpet monster eats some you still have more. A nice touch. The detail on these guns is first class, and they will look fabulous once assembled and painted. They were mostly mounted in a highly visible position on top the rear fuselage, so will form a highly detailed focal point of the model. Highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of
  2. MG-14 Parabellum WW1 Gun 1:48 Eduard Brassin The Parabellum MG-14 was a widely used German machine gun, designed from the outset for airborne use. It was comparatively light, and had an excellent rate of fire. The vast majority were used on flexible mounts as weapons for Observer/Gunners on two (or more) seater aircraft, rather than on fixed forward firing mountings for pilots. An exception was the Fokker Eindekker, some of which had MG-14's fixed to the upper forward fuselage to fire through the propeller. This new release in the Eduard Brassin range will therefore be applicable to a large number of German WW1 machines. Presented in the sturdy Brassin blister pack the resin parts are backed with foam sponge to protect them, whilst the etched brass fret is secured against the flat of the header section. Two complete MG-14's are supplied, with the main body and ammo drums in resin, and the detail parts in etched brass. The resin is beautifully cast with very sharp definition and detail, and should be easily removed from the pouring stubs. This is the early version with the larger fretted jacket around the barrel. The etched brass contains the fretted jackets so typical of many WW1 German guns, the sights, trigger mechanisms, and end plates/mounts for the ammo drums. A nice touch is that the smallest parts are supplied in triplicate, so if the carpet monster gets one, you still have two left. The modeller will have to supply their own length of rod for the barrel, 0.6 rod is suggested. These look like they will assemble into very fine little MG-14's, and as the Observer/Gunners position is often the focal point of many German 2-seaters, be a welcome addition to any model. Highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of
  3. MG-14/17 Parabellum WW1 Gun 1:32 Eduard Brassin Continuing their range of 1:32 WW1 machine guns in the Brassin range, Eduard have logically released a Parabellum MG-14/17 as a follow up to their MG-14. The '/17' suffix was used in real life by the Germans to indicate that this is the revised 1917 version of the MG-14. The main visual difference is in the size of the barrel, which in this later version has a much reduced diameter slotted jacket.

The gun barrels and sights have protective arms on the moulding blocks to keep them safe from damage until they reach your workbench. The brass fret contains the magazine drum ends and handles, sights, and mounting brackets for the Oigee sight. Thoughtfully, Eduard have provided double the amount of most these, so when the carpet monster eats some, you still have more. A nice touch. The detail on these guns is amazing, and they will look fabulous once assembled and painted. They were mostly mounted in a highly visible position on top the rear fuselage, so will form a highly detailed focal point of the model. Highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of

Presented in the sturdy Brassin blister pack the resin parts are backed with foam sponge to protect them, whilst the etched brass fret is secured against the flat of the header section. Two complete MG-14's are supplied, with the stock, body, and ammo drums in resin, and the detail parts in etched brass. The resin is beautifully cast with very sharp definition and detail, and should be easily removed from the pouring stubs. The etched brass contains the fretted jackets so typical of many WW1 German guns, the sights, trigger mechanisms, and end plates/mounts for the ammo drums. The modeller will have to supply their own length of rod for the barrel, evergreen .035 rod is suggested, although I personally prefer brass rod for this sort of task. These look like they will assemble into very fine little MG-14's, and as the Observer/Gunners position is often the focal point of many German 2-seaters, be a welcome addition to any model. Having 2 in the pack will of course cover 2 models, or if you have the Wingnut Wings Gotha, arm the mid upper and nose gunners stations. Highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of
