The M45 Quadmount (nicknamed the "meatchopper" and "Krautmower" for its high rate of fire) was a weapon mounting consisting of four of the "HB", or "heavy barrel".50 caliber M2 Browning machine guns (of the M2 Turret Type (TT) variant) mounted in pairs on each side of an open-structure, electrically powered turret. It was developed by the W. L. Maxson Corporation of New York to replace the earlier M33 twin mount (also from Maxson). Although designed as an anti-aircraft weapon, it was also used against ground targets. Introduced in 1943 during World War II, it remained in US service as late as the Vietnam War (where US troop presence ended in 1973)

Just received it and unpacked, but looks amazing! Still have to go through everything but so far very nice. I do have a couple questions which I will also ask through 'Contact us'. One: The Photo album (and forum) seems to be offline, Two: Painting doesn't seem to be indicated/suggested on instructions so up to builder?, and Three: Are you still considering making it Radio Controlled? Asked previously a few years ago...
