I want to see an MG 35 as listed on the image! I don't know if I am up to making this belt though.

So , a barrel for my 1/56 Italeri KV II ? Very nice . I wonder what else they could have in store for 1/56 scale modelers ?

Itís a pity the ammo looks to be resin, would deserve turned casing (like the old Mission Models .50 cal belt). Must be fun to assemble 😉

Yes, they certainly DO... I've been a big fan of ABER's for quite a few years!

Check out the May news. 1/56 is a new line for them. First two releases were barrels for the Sherman and KV-1.

"Wow" as usual. Belts of ammo in 1/35 would also be gleefully appreciated.

I just got in and built their 1:35 17cm K18 barrel that was announced in February. Their barrels are top notch. Not cheap, but very worth the price. Having said that, ammunition belts are always a sore spot for me, I usually go with Griffon's German ammo boxes, drums and belts but this MG34 belt from ABER will top that. It looks incredibly tedious nut the payoff is huge.

Nice sets! and now for the inevitable "I wish for something else" moment. I wish Aber would do a US T29 Heavy tank barrel, that is as good as the beautiful one they did for the IS-2.
