K59 1:35 Scale Set No. C-009
Review by Terry Ashley
The overall length of the real gun is 1225mm which equals 35mm in 1:35 scale and the resin gun measures out to this exactly give or take a fraction.
The main gun is cast in one piece and features a separate receiver cover and most notably the cooling jacket is cast hollow with cleanly opened holes with a separate barrel added for excellent definition. The only issue here is the barrel appears a little too thin but being separate can easily be replaced with thin rod if you feel it needs updating.
The detail on the gun is excellent with the recoil spring detail inside the receiver and nicely detailed muzzle which is hollowed out slightly but you could drill this out further for a better appearance.
Other parts include the separate receiver cover, a choice of extended or folder bi-pod legs and a choice of ammo drum or length of 7.92mm rounds to add a bit of variety depending on the use of the gun as well as the two part etched sling with extremely fine attachments and an anti-aircraft site as a option.
with separate barrel insert.
Fitting the barrel is very easy with the resin part just slipping into the open cooling jacket without any problems and your choice of folded or extended bi-pod legs added at the front.
Barrel is fractionally too thin but easily replaced due to being a separate part.
Receiver cover open with etched inside detail
A section of ammo belt is provided as an alternative to the drum
Adding the etched sling may present a few challenges due to the brass not wanting to bend naturally and the securing clips are extremely small requiring some care and patience while assembling these and attaching to the gun, but the end result looks good overall.
The separate receiver cover and barrel will allow you to show the gun being stripped for a diorama and can be used as an infantry gun or vehicle mounted as applicable, the uses are endless.
Highly recommended 9/10Thanks to my credit card and the excellent service from for the review kit.
