Some time ago we made an article of the Bordwaffen and today I find this article as good historic background for this review. One of the last releases (in the moment of this writing) from Eduard is the Brassin set of MG 81Z in 1/48 scale.

This Eduard kit is a very simple one with minimum parts inside. It comes as stock code 648 135 and it is packed in a thin transparent plastic case. Total content is two resin parts and three etched parts. Resin parts present main armament body and trigger/handle. Etched parts are for handle, Eduard provides three samples, as well you actually need just two, third one is good reserve (in case of carpet monster).

Working with this is as simple as possible. Remove resin parts and cement it with super glue and add at the rear parts two handles. This is it, five minutes assembly job. Painting is simple, as I know it comes in very dark metal finish but please check out, maybe there is some variation. Product is so simple and so good; welcome detail on some of the Luftwaffe 1/48 kits.
