CAM | .50 Cal Machine guns
Reviewed by Randy Bumgardner
Almost everyone who wanted to detail a gunbay on a WWII U.S. fighter has felt that twinge of angst. That feeling of dread that the kit guns are a good starting point but little else. Well, feel that no more! CAM has come to the rescue with these little gems.
These 0.50cal masterpieces come packaged three to a set, so you're hooked up for most American fighters. If you're planning on detailing both wings, or you're working on a P-47, well, you'll have to buy multiples. They are packaged with both smooth and perforated barrels, so you actually get a choice for whatever your application.
Mastered by Scott Murphy, each gun packs a lot of detail. Cast in a cream colored resin (although a few white resin parts did sneak into my sample), the parts are relatively flash free and the pour stubs will present no troubles.
