Infini Model has announced the May 2018 release of a brass upgrade set for Pit-Road’s 1/35 scale 25mm Type 96 Triple machine gun mount.
’s very complete upgrade set consists of 53 turned brass parts including the three gun barrels, mount elevation piston assembly, 25mm cartridges (both “live” and used) as well as a sheet of brass photoetch components to outfit Pit-Road’s awesome 1/35 scale 25mm Type 96 Triple machine gun mount https://modelshipwrights.kitmaker.net/modules.php?op=modload&name=News&file=article&sid=28823.
While the turned brass barrels offer the usual upgrade to the plastic parts provided in the basic kit, what really makes this set stand out are the operating features - the turned brass piston that actually fits into hollow cylinder sleeve which enables the guns to be elevated and depressed with a 9mm stroke, and the solid brass cartridges that can actually be fit into the spring-loaded magazines!
