MiniArt is back with another nice release for your diorama or vignette needs. This set provides three different German crew-served machine guns. This set provides two MG 34s, two MG 42s, and one ZB 53.

German Machineguns Set

Each MG 34 features the weapon, choice of extended or stowed bipods, one photo-etched ammo belt, one ammo drum, one photo-etched sling, ammo can, and carrier with two ammo drums.

Each MG 42 also features the weapon, choice of extended or stowed bipods, one photo-etched ammo belt, ammo can, and support gear.

The Czech-made ZB-53 features the weapon with photo-etched heat shields and muzzle flash supressor, detailed tripod with two height options, photo-etched ammo belt, and two ammo cans.

Each of these weapons is a detailed model in itself and will look great in a diorama or vignette of your design. Whether you need heavy firepower on the line or stowed in a vehicle, this set will provide some impressive visual details!
