Superb for things like Sd.Kfz.7s with crews.

Hey Bill, I was thinking the same thought but larger: I needed something really fine (like these) for my tricked-out FAMO conversion. Definitely need to look into a couple of sets of these!

I do wish, though, that they had cast the trigger assembly better. You can't offer fine detail and then flub it by making the entire trigger guard and trigger one large piece of flash. Darn.

I agree with Frank , it's a shame to have to drill out the trigger guard . Depending on the price it could be a deal breaker .
I have their Bren gun and that also has an up side and a down side .
The gun is excellent quality and detail but you only get one and there are two magazine options , drum and clip , gee thanks , luck had it they were very cheap so I bought two .
They also make an Mg34 [ I believe ] and if the quality and detail is as good as the Bren I'd be interested in that too .
