The M-60 machine gun began development in the late 1940's. The U.S. Army adopted the M-60 in 1957, and it is still widely used today within the U.S. armed forces.

In the Easy Line / Plusmodel kit, you get enough pieces to make two complete guns. The parts in the kit are of a well-mastered resin with a malleable photo etch brass.

There was minimal flash on the resin, with small manageable pour stubs that connect the resin pieces blocks. Some care will be needed as I got a little heavy-handed and broke off the charging handle. Not a big deal, as it is an easy fix. I used Gator glue to attach the photo etch to the resin with good results.

Upon completion, this is a good miniature representation of the M-60 machine gun and would make a great addition to any diorama from Vietnam to present day. I highly recommend this kit.

I would like to thank Plusmodel and IPMS/USA for the opportunity to review this little gem of a kit.
