Vane Gun Sights

GasPatch has produced some excellent resin vane gunsights that would be most suitable for WWI and post war aircraft and their armament.

Within this set are 3 different styles with 4 copies of each. You will need to do your research on which style to use for your model but will be rewarded with some excellently detailed resin sights.

 

 

Congratulations to GasPatch for the manner in which they package their fragile resin products. Stored within small foam blocks to ensure that, you the modeller, get your products in good order and not broken. And now the warning…….they were packaged so well I managed to break a couple of pieces off getting them out on the snug recess so please be careful.

A small sheet, with packaging labelling on one side and colour call outs is all that comes with the pack, but nothing more is really needed.


 

MG 15 Machine Gun

Again, another beautifully detailed and moulded set of pieces.

Each gun is made up of 3 parts, with a choice of the front legs opened or closed for carrying. The magazine section is a separate part.

 

 

There is very little flash to clean up.

This set is also packaged extremely well due to the fragile nature of the parts (packaging shown in the pictures) and again, please take care in the parts removal from the foam.

A small sheet, with packaging labelling on one side and instructions and colour call outs on the reverse side make up the only written content, which ultimately is more than sufficient.

 

 

Conclusion

 

These are a couple of really nicely detailed sets, that will be able to add that extra detail to your early aircraft or add to your figures or armour type modelling in the case of the MG 15.

Thanks to GasPatch Models for the samples.
