This is a set of lots of US weapons that will be useful for dioramas or as stowage on vehicles. There are two bags of weapons with a complete set in each bag, contained on three sprues. There is also a sprue of canvas bags.

I built up the M2 .50 cal machine gun on a tripod, the 60mm mortar, and a bazooka. The machine gun has 20 parts and most are pretty small. But we get a highly detailed gun and very nice belt- fed ammo. The mortar has 13 parts and a couple of rounds for it. The barrels are hollowed out, but a little more drilling is needed. The stowage is as good as resin pieces, and the M1 helmets are the best I’ve seen in plastic. The only problem I see is a bent M1 carbine barrel, since there are three sprues packed in one plastic bag.

Here is a listing of what you get:

  • 2 x M2 .50 Caliber MG with a tripod and a box of belt feed ammo
  • 2 x M1919 Browning .30 Caliber with a tripod and a box of belt feed ammo
  • 2 x M1A1 Carbine (Paratrooper Model)

  • 2 x Springfield M1903A3 Rifle
  • 4 x Mk.2 Hand Grenades
  • 2 x M1911A1 Colt 45
