Eduard's BRASSIN 1/72 Bullpup B is available online from Squadron.com

 

FirstLook

 

Defensive guns are often poorly represented in injected kits. This is in part due to moulding limitations, but also it frequently seems that a near enough is good enough attitude has prevailed at the kit’s design stage. Some guns are more noticeable in this respect than others are; and I think that WW2 German had-held defensive armament is often amongst those that are.

 

 

This set provides two very detailed MG 81 guns; not to be confused with Eduard Brassin’s MG 81Z paired guns (part number 672019) that I reviewed here on HyperScale in October 2013.

 

 

The two guns come attractively packaged in a blister pack with sponge cushioning. Very clear instructions are included, with colour call-outs cross-referenced to the Gunze Aqueous, Mr Color, and Mr Metal Colour paint ranges. The parts should be very easy to remove from the pour stubs. The instructions are downloadable in as a PDF from Eduard’s website, to view these please click here.

 

 

There is not a lot to this package when compared to the amount of resin parts in some other Brassin sets of a similar price.

 

 

Conclusion

 

These are excellent replacement MG 81s, but rather expensive in my opinion. They are recommended given their quality and if you do not mind the cost.

Thanks to Eduard for the samples and images.
