Whilst there are many after-market producers who provide those all essential missing bits for our kits and dioramas, I donít know of anyone but Resicast
who cater for the British/Commonwealth modeller in such depth of accessory sets for infantry troops. Iíve reviewed many of the items they provide and here is a look at another useful set of accessories for you to ponder.
Other Resicast reviews can be found here:
The set is the Mk I Bren Gun mount, and was mastered by George Moore.
The parts come packaged in the standard professional small box format used by Resicast. The items are zip bagged and packed in bubble wrap for extra protection Ė no rattles here. The top cover of the box shows the product details and manufacturers detail and has a picture of the built items for reference.
Inside the box is an A4 sheet of instructions folded into a 4 page A5 format. The instructions are picture driven with the parts used in each stage of the 3 option build clearly marked . The parts are contained in 5 separate zip bags. All the parts are cast excellent and have fine detail.
The set contains enough parts to model 3 versions of the Mk I stand and Bren Gun. You can model the stand in a closed position, a fixed firing position or in the anti-aircraft...or any three combinations you choose.
As well as the stand you get 3 Bren Guns to go with them and 8 Bren Ammo boxes, plus 3 Bren Tool kits and 3 Bren Wallets.
Also contained within the set is a small PE fret needed for the build.
The parts are small and some are fragile so you will need to take a bit of care with this. A sharp X-Acto Blade and a razor saw will be needed, but clean up should be minimal. Remember normal precautions apply when working with resin.
A very detailed and useful set for the model builder. Whether you want to build a representation of the gun and stand alone, or need that additional piece of detailed and unusual equipment for a larger scene, this is a very useful set of accessories for the British/Commonwealth builder.
In this hobby the devil is in the details and this set will certainly add that something extra.
