It is a really good set. But, I wish they had included a good Lafette tripod for the 34 and 42.

The detail looks impressive.

The addition of the etch slings help.

There looks to be some flash around the weapon sights and could be challenging to try and remove when getting rid of the seams lines.
I could not tell if the barrels need drilling out not that it's a major issue.

Overall looks like a good set to fill a diorama.

Wasn't this already reviewed recently? Seem to remember comments about the MG34. Hmmm.
