Re: New 4d Puzzle Model weapon set. Review and Improvements 2017 set.

Lets start with the MC-53.

I just started working on this and I will say. It need some work and improvements.

As you guys will notice. This gun lacked details for a Hk.



The Selector switch looks very.. meeeh.. No pins details sooooooooooooooooo... That needs to be taking care of!


The Forward grip is blocky and well.. not very pretty. Sorry for the bad Iphone image.


SO! Lets go ahead and show off what can be done with improvements of the MC-53.


The rear needs more work.


So far so good! needs paint and done.


HK-53
6 out of 10. Does need a LITTLE work to make this Turd look good. But hell, it's a MC-53. Been waiting for one.

Re: New 4d Puzzle Model weapon set. Review and Improvements 2017 set.

Next is the UZI.

Simple to build. Very self explanatory to build to build this puppy up.





The Suppressor needs some work to add more details. Being Sunday, Hobby Lobby is closed so.. No putty.. :(

Comparing it with the Zacca UZI.
Not bad on the detail.




I might do a few things to this UZI. Maybe a wider trigger guard and maybe improve that suppressor. But that Trigger guard needs work.

The Uzi. 7 out of 10.

It's not a bad little puzzle model.

Totally PD. Totally! This kit isn't to bad. BUT a few guns could be well... worked on or just turned to Scratch built parts.

Re: New 4d Puzzle Model weapon set. Review and Improvements 2017 set.

And talk about guns that could be used for parts.

The Mk-18......

Oh boy.... Real nasty piece of work..... :\





It's ugly.... REALLY ugly.

Is that the cover???? O_O
Wait? NO Details on the lower receiver????


The rails look.... okay... OMG look at that Front sight Becky!!! It's so big!!!!
The Tac light is just.. ew....


Really big!!!


Stock is... Well... reusable for something..


The ACOG needs work... Wait??? No Rail??? Oh that's right! It's a snap together model with no details...


Yeah.....

Very poor kit.... VERY VERY poor.
3 out of 10....

Comparing it with a DML and the 1st Series M16/M203 by 4d.

Re: New 4d Puzzle Model weapon set. Review and Improvements 2017 set.

Next up is the MP-7

Here it is in pieces.

Already started the improvements on this kit. GOD I always wanted a MP-7 in my collection. Mainly for my custom builds I want to do.

Close up on the receiver. Nicely detailed.


Barfed the kit all over my table. But it's NOT a bad kit.

The Kit gives you two different types of Suppressors. You can chose ether A: the simple Can suppressor or B: this Magpul looking version.

If you do go with the B option like I did! It will need work and filling.



I went with B. Looks better for the model.




My only nit picks I have with this kit.

As you notice on the receiver, it has these things that you have to use to put the sights on the upper. The PEQ 15 as that same tab that slides into the MP-7.

So it's pretty much useless for other guns.

It's need some minor detail work.

7 out of 10.

Re: New 4d Puzzle Model weapon set. Review and Improvements 2017 set.

Whats next....?

Lets go with the MP-40.

I like this one!!!! Hell! Even the bolt moves. O.O

It's not a bad little WW2 kit. Simple to put together.





Bolt opens up!



Does it need improvements? Yes... But simple little details. Like maybe a little work on the Magazine release button. A Spring for the Bolt and Charging handle.

Clean up and paint.

OH and some filling in's here and there. But..

9 out of 10!

Thanx for the review / build ups of these, Uswin!

I'm eager to get my hands on these, lots of good parts for the parts bin, and I've been after a AR15 lower receiver and pistol grip just like that for a few ideas tumbling around in the idea dumpster.

Thanx again and a big Huzzah!

Re: New 4d Puzzle Model weapon set. Review and Improvements 2017 set.

The MP-5's... Both of them...

To be honest.. They are OKAY to a point. They do need work or just thrown into a parts pile.

I found some issues with both MP's.... Major forward rack of the Magazine and the Magazine well.. I don't know what I could do with that..???

Not ever detailed.. Like the MC-53. So yeh pins will need to be added..

the Tac light is ew... Unlike the 1st set and 2nd set of 4d Models I have had before. Both had really nice Tac lights. This is well... crap.

But here are the photos so you can judge for yourself.

Also, the Red dot and the EOTech is kinda poop too.... :(

The MP-5




The MP-5SD5



What I mean with the MASSIVE forward rake of the magazine.



Nasty Tac light.


Yeh...

Not to joyful with these two. I'll see what i can do with these MP's later.

Re: New 4d Puzzle Model weapon set. Review and Improvements 2017 set.

And now!!!

The moment everyone been waiting for with excitement!!!

maybe... >_>

The Kriss!!

My favorite out of the entire SET!

It detailed with the Vector Arms insignia.

It's a REALLY wonderful piece of a model.

Yes! The magazine was put on backwards.. >_> I was doing this late at night...


The EOTac is poop... So chucking that and putting a Rail on it later on.


The top with the detailess EOTec.


Some Dot clean up.


9 out of 10.

It is another one of my favorites. Going to do something cool with this. make the Rails and fine a good EOtec or somesort of sight. It's a good 1/6 scale model. One posted up there in the other post. I gotta say. I agree. It's nice!!!!!!

Also forgot to mention.. DAT Suppressor! It be big!!! It be long!

Re: New 4d Puzzle Model weapon set. Review and Improvements 2017 set.

Thanks for sharing this review Uswin!

I agree: that Kriss certainly does have some potential for customisation. I might have to get my hands on one of these at some point.

Is the suppressor and the magazine removable on the UZI? That actually looks to have some decent detail, which, with a little work could dress up quite nicely.

Nice work cleaning up that MC-53 BTW! That should paint up very nicely.

Indeed, thanks for the whole show. All in all, not bad, methinks. It helps that you have the eye and the skills to clean up what needs to be done. Do you think the breed (model wpn sets) is improving with time?

Re: New 4d Puzzle Model weapon set. Review and Improvements 2017 set.

Interesting.

The KRISS and the MP-40 from the set are the only ones to receive a high grade/score of 9/10 while the others ranged from floundering to mediocre.

Re: New 4d Puzzle Model weapon set. Review and Improvements 2017 set.

Yep! The Suppressor and Magazine does come out. It does look decent, I do agree. The Trigger housing needs to get a little bigger. BUT it's nice. :D

BTW! The MC-53. CAN'T WAIT to paint.

With consideration of 4d? It seems they kinda took a step back with this set. That's what I am concern about. Mine you, the MP7, Kriss, Uzi and MP-40 are NOT BAD! Really nicely done. But the MP-5s, That Mk-18, Sadly the MC-53. Looks like they kinda took a step BACK. Not really that great. Reason why they didn't score so high.

At less I am honest. AS mention to PD. They weren't all that great.

Like the Mk-18. Not worth the time to do ANYTHING with it. It's good for parts for other gun. If you got broken M4's.

The MP-5s are just... meh. Because if you look around the in the Market of. Intoyz, DAM, DML, and I can go on. MP-5's are just... That MP-5. The RACK on these from the Mag is just. WOW! Also, I notice the Magazine Well and the bolt are NOT Lined correct.

The MP-7 has issues and it REALLY need work. BUT again, its Budget MP-7. Again, been in search for one. Like EVER. I should have some photos of 3 builds soon.
