Black Ops Models
« on: July 27, 2018, 08:07:05 PM »
I searched the forums (fora?) and didn't see a previous thread, so I'll start it off, I guess.

Black Ops Models is out of Australia, and they have a lot of neat resin bits-n-bobs for dioramas, with a heavy interest in the "Killer Egg" variants of the MD-500.

Their website: https://blackopsmodels.com/

I recently ordered a single GAU-19 for research purposes, and it was delivered to the US East Coast in about ten days.  I plan to give it a look over the weekend and can provide a rough review if anyone is interested.

Now if they would just offer that in a pintle mounted version for shipboard and vehicle options.

I'm going to see what I can scrape together to make exactly that, since I don't really have plans to hang this on any 1/35 helo.

Here are just a couple photos of Black Ops Models' GAU-19:

 

There are no assembly instructions.  You get a length of tubing for the 3 barrels, the flash hider/barrel ends, 2 parts for the gun chamber/motor, a section of flexible ammo chute and 2 parts for mounting it to a helo pylon of your choice (?).  All the parts were well cast with no apparent bubbles and very little flash.  The pour stubs are well located to be easily removed without damage to the parts. 

As previously mentioned, it would be nice to have a pintle mount option, so I'll be scratching that when I decide what project to use this on.
