The M2 Browning Machine Gun or "Ma Deuce" as known by some is probably one of the most highly recognized machine guns in the world and is rapidly approaching one hundred years in service.

Eduard Brassin is designed as resin and photo etch accessories for scale plastic kits at a reasonable price.

The kit comes with two grey resin parts and a small brass photo etch fret. The resin pieces are of the M2 machine gun and the charging handle. The photo etch pieces consist of the trigger and barrel carrying handle.

Moving on to the build. My example came with a warped barrel and no matter how I have tried, I can not get it straight. The pour stub on the gun is in a horrible position. It is on the handle end of the receiver which is already attached to gun. This makes clean up in this area extremely difficult. You will also have to drill the end of the barrel to give the impression of depth. The kit builds fairly easily with just the above mentioned problem areas.

I had high hopes for this when I started this kit. I wish that I could highly recommend this, but with the quality of M2's that come in kits these days you would be best off just using the kit gun. I would like to thank Eduard and IPMS/USA for the opportunity to be able to review this kit.
