FirstLook

 

GasPatch Models has been in the spotlight recently thanks to their beautiful injection moulded 1/48 scale kits, but they also produce a good-sized line of accessories.

These include a growing range of machine guns that are suitable for WWI, between-the-wars and WWII subjects. They also offer wheels, gunsights and other related accessories.

Tonight I am reviewing the GasPatch 1/24 scale Browning Cal.30 Mk.I / Mk.II Wing Mounted machine gun.

 

 

Packaging is simple but effective. The parts are contained in a clear blister pack and immobilised by custom-cut foam to ensure the delicate parts are delivered in perfect condition. My sample is free from any damage.

Assembly is pretty much self-explanatory, although instructions are included.

 

 

Two full guns are provided. They are broken down into a separate main body / breech, with a separate breech flap, two ammo clips and a choice of either the Mk.I or Mk.II style of barrel.

 

 

These are different in barrel and muzzle brake detail.

 

 

The breeches are supplied as a single resin part with no cleanup required whatsoever.

 

 

The barrel slips into a square opening at the front of the breech.

 

 

The ammo, barrels and breech flap are cast onto fine attachments.

Thanks to GasPatch Models for the samples.
