Lysander Twin Browning Machine Gun (648584)

1:48 Eduard Brassin




Eduard have reboxed the 1:48 Lysander kit from Gavia a few times over the years, and one of those times has been a pretty recent affair.  They usually include some goodies in the ProfiPACK box, but there’s always a little more in the way of detail the modeller can add.  This set contains a twin Browning mount for the rear gunner, and as usual with Eduard's smallest Brassin sets, they arrive in a flat resealable package, with a white backing card protecting the contents and the instructions that are sandwiched between.




This set contains eight resin parts on four casting blocks, plus a small fret of Photo-Etch (PE) for the finer details.  The guns are moulded with a full-length cooling jacket, and mount on either side of a cruciform bracket, with ammo feeds curving up from below.  Each barrel is fitted with two tiny PE parts near the muzzle, a central sight and an auxiliary sight on brackets mounted to the right barrel.  A larger bracket is attached to the rear of the breeches and forms the top half of the twin grip mount, which are small resin spindles that slot into the depression in the lower arms of the mount and glue to the PE bracket at the top.  The completed assembly is then a drop-in replacement for the kit gun, and you are given colour call-outs in Gunze codes throughout the build.


Detail is up to Eduard’s usual exemplary standards, and preparation is simplified by the slim attachment points on each resin part, and you must remove the “bubble-catcher” prong moulded into the tip of each barrel before you finish.


Highly recommended.
