to Wikipedia :
The parts in the kit are very well
cast. When looking carefully, we can find an occasional pin-hole,
but nothing that ruins the fine detail. There is almost no warping,
except perhaps very slightly in the gun barrel. A small amount of
flash needs to be removed. The riveting detail is superbly done.
The manual has a single exploded type
drawing, which might be a little bit crowded in places. Fortunately,
there are also 9 pictures of the completed kit on the backside, which
help enormously. More are to be found on the GB
Modelli website, together with pictures of the real gun. There
is a separate instruction clearly distinguishing the three types of
hand-wheels. For those who are wondering what the Italian text says
that the English text doesn't (notice the difference in volume between
the two), it says just that: "be very careful when placing the
Decals or marking suggestions are not given in the kit, but, as said, pictures of the real gun can be found on the GB Modelli website. I am no specialist when it comes to Austrian-Hungarian, Czech or Italian paint schemes, but I guess that the gun would be painted in the "color of the time". German guns would be dark grey or dark yellow, depending on the time-frame. I don't think it would carry many markings, except perhaps some stenciling and a gun number.
Thanks to Georgio Briga (GB Modelli) for the review sample.
