FirstLook

 

GasPatch Models has been in the spotlight recently thanks to their beautiful injection moulded 1/48 scale kits, but they also produce a good-sized line of accessories.

These include a growing range of machine guns that are suitable for WWI, between-the-wars and WWII subjects. They also offer wheels, gunsights and other related accessories.

Tonight I am reviewing the GasPatch 1/32 scale Marlin M1918 Late Type machine gun. By the last months of World War I, almost 50% of the SPAD XIII fighter aircraft used by the United States Army Air Service in France had their Vickers guns replaced with the lightweight Marlin.

 

 

Packaging is simple but effective. The parts are contained in a clear blister pack and immobilised by custom-cut foam to ensure the delicate parts are delivered in perfect condition. My sample is free from any damage.

Assembly is pretty much self-explanatory, although instructions are included.

 

 

The gun is supplied as a single resin part with no cleanup required whatsoever. The ammo is cast onto a narrow strip.

Thanks to GasPatch Models for the samples.
