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. 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 the standard Brassin bubble pack, with parts for two complete models, and 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.

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.
