Once again referring to the .50cal machinegun comparison article, you can see that this piece is superior to almost all of the guns previously available. Although this one is not 3D-printed like many of the newest offerings, it is extremely detailed, and probably represents the best detail possible in traditional resin casting. Makes me wonder if the master parts were possibly 3D-printed with the copies cast in resin. As can be seen in the scan above (click for larger), the mount and smaller parts for machinegun are provided in photoetched brass. This looks pretty simple to assemble, and will likely look fantastic on a completed model.
