Modeling the Sherman Tank in 1/72nd Scale
Browning 1919 Cal.30 Machinegun Mini World
Kit #A7226
Article by Doug Chaltry; last updated 5 January 2018
What a gorgeous piece! Decent machineguns are very hard to come by in our scale, particularly the Browning .30cal model 1919. As you can see in the Browning .30cal Comparison Article, we don't have a lot to choose from, and most of the plastic examples are mediocre at best. The gun presented here from Mini World is fantastic, and I'll just let the following scans speak for themselves. Apologies for not getting a better shot of the tip of the barrel, but as you can barely make out, there is a small depression for the opening. As you can see in the instructions, assembly of the photoetched bits is going to be quite a challenge with these miniscule parts. Based on specifications I found on-line, the overall length of this piece looks to be almost perfect.
