|B.U.M. (Barcelona Universal Models), Mech-Sword and Pobeda all appear to be related in some
form as kit boxings sometimes have multiple logos
and the kits are sold exclusively through the same website. B.U.M. appears to be the umbrella organization located in Spain. It is thought that Pobeda and Mech-Sword
labelled items are produced in Russia. The B.U.M. brand appears to be mostly
pre-WW2 subjects, while Pobeda covers mostly WW2 Eastern Front subjects and
Mech-Sword covers other WW2 subjects - American, British, Italian and Japanese.
Items are usually limited issue releases, mostly of kits from other manufacturers such as Airfix, Amodel, Atlantic, Esci, Fujimi, Giant, ICM, LW, Marx, Matchbox, Mir, Revell, RPM, SDW and UM, to name a few, and copied to a large degree. In many cases multi-part vehicles are re-cast as single or two piece resin items. There is no consistencey with material used. Many new releases are in hard and soft resin, though figures & accessories remain largely in plastic. Resin parts, especially the vehicles and guns, appear to be extremely crude.
Mech-Sword also produces plastic kits and resin kits.
