Easy Assembly!

You will need access to an angle grinder and a welder.

The assembly of our M2HB kit requires you to be able to be able to spot weld things together, so if you have a basic welder in your garage / shop - you can build this!

The pieces of our kit fit together much like a 3D puzzle, and this design helps to square itself up and add some rigidity and shear strength to the overall shape of the model.

It is recommended that you use an M2 mount, or cradle, (such as the m23, mk64, or mk93) to jig up the side plates and the rear mounts, to ensure they will fit all mounts... but if you don't have one (or don't want to use yours as a jig), we also have a jig we can sell you that has the proper mounting holes - just ask us!

Full color assembly instructions help show you step-by-step on how to put this kit together!

How is it shipped?

Your M2HB kit will be shipped in a military-style shipping crate that has been designed so you can use it to transport and display your finished model.

NOTE: Shipping costs are NOT included in the price of the model kit, and will be calculated after you place your order, based on your shipping address.  If you need a shipping estimate, or an invoice showing the total price, please contact us BEFORE YOU ORDER.

Pieces all boxed up and ready to ship!


Yes!  We have physically tested our kit on an m23, mk64, mk93, and standard tripod pintle mounts.

Our M2HB kit is designed to fit all the standard mounts that a real M2 would fit on.  Of course, because this is a kit, you can also fabricate your own mount / custom set-up for anything you want!

Keep in mind these are all pictures of our prototype model.  Our final model that will be shipped out will have additional details, and better fitment for the parts.

As you can tell in the pictures, we only tack-welded our prototype together.  If you are wanting more seamless transitions for pieces, you can solid weld the joints and grind them smooth - it's all up to you!
