12mm ZPU AA Guns from Butlers Printed Models

One ZPU anti-aircraft gun. Available in 6mm (1/285), 12mm (1/144), 15mm (1/100), 20mm (1/76) and 28mm (1/56).

The ZPU anti-aircraft machine gun mount is a family of towed anti-aircraft gun based on the Soviet 14.5 × 114mm KPV heavy machine gun. It entered service with the Soviet Union in 1949 and is used by over 50 countries worldwide.

Quadruple (ZPU-4), double- (ZPU-2 and ZU-2) and single-barreled (ZPU-1) versions of the weapon exist.

3 different variants are available:

ZPU-1
ZPU-2
ZPU-4

Please read the assembly instructions below:

Warning: At this scale these models are small and therefore delicate and harder to assemble than at the larger scales.  Some additional filing may be required to fit the parts together.

ZPU-1.  This gun comes in 2 parts.  The barrel simply needs to be glued in position at your preferred angle

ZPU-2.  This gun comes in 4 parts.  The gun barrel part is a push fit into the body of the gun, it may be glued in position or left free to move.  The wheels are separate and must be glued in place.  The wheels can be placed in either the travelling or deployed position (pictures show the gun deployed, the mudguards should be uppermost in the travelling position).  Please note the picture of the two wheels, one has the support material removed and the other does not to show you what is and is not support.

ZPU-4.  This gun comes in 5 parts.  Take care removing the support material. The gun barrel parts should be glued together first.  Once glued together the gun barrels can be fitted into the body of the gun (note the correct orientation in the pictures).  Finally the upper part of the gun body should be glued in place to completely enclose the gun barrel parts.  It is recommended to glue the gun body onto the carriage as the spigot is quite short.
