Little Armory PKM machine gun

The PKM is a Russian general purpose machine gun. This Little Armory kit is in all black plastic, except for the grip, carrying handle, stock, and bullet case. The black parts were painted with gunmetal and the bullet case with Russian Green. I randomly brushed enamel dark brown on the stock, grip and carrying handle, and dabbed some black weathering pastel. The bullets were individually hand painted using enamel gold. With everything assembled, the only spare part is the bipod.

The length is about the same as the M240 machine gun, but the PKM looks less bulky.

Final word:
At first glance, the Little Armory PKM doesn’t look that impressive and the design looks somewhat generic. But closer inspection reveals some fine details, such as on the bullet case. The carrying handle can be rotated as well, unlike the M249 and M240 machine guns.
But overall, that is still not enough to put the PKM on my favourites list.
