For those wanting to do dioramas and figures, there is a lot of guns involved and Master Model has come to the aid of modelers everywhere with two sets. They both represent .50 caliber machine gun rounds with an options of spent shell casings or full cartridges. Each set contains 25 pieces of magnificent metal work.

Let's take a look! I will first confess that the minute size of these made it difficult to photograph. For reference, you will see a no. 11 blade in several photographs. These are very small, several millimeters long BUT the detail is awesome. You can see from the spent cartridges, that there is hole where the bullet belongs so they drilled it out on a part 2 mm! The full part has not less detail.

These would be superb to pile up near a machine gun nest as expended shells or to add to the feed chute to a .50 call machine gun. They have uses in all sorts of dioramas and vignettes. And using them is easy, open the package and glue where you need them. A little wash to highlight the details and done

To say that I am impressed is a vast understatement. These are the pinnacle of metal parts and highly recommended.

My thanks to the excellent people at Master Model for production of such a wonderful item and allowing IPMS/USA to review it.
