Introduction

ICM have recently released a new 1910 Russian Maxim Machine Gun. This weapon was used by the Imperial Russian Army during World War 1. It fired a 7.62mm round and was mounted on a wheeled carriage with a gun shield and had folding legs at the front.

The Kit

The kit comes packed in an A4 size box with a double sided A4 set of instructions. The box art depicts the weapon in colour and shows the product code/details along with the manufacturers logo.

The instruction sheet is logically laid out and the build consists of 10 steps. Suggested painting instructions are included on the sheet. The parts are contained in a reseal-able plastic sleeve/envelope.

The parts are on two small sprues of buff coloured plastic; one containing the gun parts and ammunition box, and the other the carriage, legs and a belt of ammunition

The parts are extremely well produced with excellent fine detail. Care will need to be taken removing some of the smaller parts, but you will have everything you need to make an excellent rendition of the Maxim 1910.

Conclusion

This is extremely well detailed model of the machine gun, you have the option of building it with the front legs in place or folded to the rear. Providing you take a little care removing the parts from the fixing points this will give you a very useable item for either a standalone weapon or incorporated in to a larger scene.

The level of detail and accuracy is to be commended, a very good kit indeed. An excellent addition to their figure and accessory range.

SUMMARY
Highs: Excellent crisp sharp detail.
Lows: None I can think of.
Verdict: Highly Recommended.

Greying slightly, but young at heart. I've been teaching adults off and on for most of my life. Left the services in 85 and first started modelling in about 87 for a few years. Then I had a long spell when I didn't build anything (too busy) and really just got started again during the summer of ...

What a beautiful model of a ubiquitous crew-served weapon.

Hi Fredrick, They have also released the 1910/30 to the same high standard. I'll have the review done this week. Cheers Al
