Czech Master Kits, known as CMK, is one of the prolific model companies out of the Czech Republic releasing full kits and aftermarket parts for aircraft, AFVs, ships, figures, and more.

This includes a series of brass chains which are listed as Fine (72nd scale), Medium (48th) and Coarse (35th). This review covers the Fine version of these products as I build mostly 1/72nd scale kits. What you get is a very nice chain in brass that is 30cm long (almost 12 inches). The links are 2mm long and 1.2mm wide. The quality is high. You can either use the chain at its full length or cut it into smaller sizes for different uses.

I took pictures of the chain in comparison with my most recent review builds, a 1/76th scale M3 half track from Airfix and Tamiya’s new M3 Stuart. To my eye the chain would work for a heavy chain in 72nd - 76th scale, maybe in use to tow a vehicle. It looks more like a normal chain in 35th scale though would be too large to use as tailgate chains.

All in all a nice simple product that will find many uses in multiple scales and the price is right too.

Thanks to Special Hobby and IPMS/USA for the review kit.C
