d80130 SS-Panzer-Divison Das Reich MG42 Gunner Dustin
Remember the MG34 gunner team last year? It consists of D80124 Alois, D80125 Bradric and D80127 Curtis.
In 1942, MG42 was developed to intend to replace MG34, for its lower cost and easy to build. And it was proved to be highly reliable and easy to operate. It is most notable for its very high cyclic rate for a gun using full power service cartridges, averaging about 1200 rounds per minute. The distinctive sound caused by the high cyclic firing rate gave MG42 the nickname “Hitler’s buzzsaw”.
A metal highly-detailed MG42 replica in 1/6 scale is included in D80131, carried by Dustin. Instead of shouting at the enemies like Alois, The man is calm but firm, who makes you feel horrible.
