Historical Data
Vickers started production of this gun in 1926, but service introduction on British ships does not seem to have taken place prior to 1932. This weapon was used on almost all British warships during World War II, many in quad mounts like the ones shown below.

This was a recoil-operated, water-cooled gun with link-belt ammunition feed and was significantly less powerful than the USN's 0.50" (12.7 mm) Browning M2 BMG. Like the US and most other nations, the British found small-caliber machine guns like these to be ineffective against modern aircraft. Nonetheless, this weapon was still produced in large numbers during the war with an overall total of 12,500 being built.

A few guns were exported to Japan during the late 1930s where they were designated as the 12 mm/62 "HI" Type (also known as the "BI" Type). The Japanese guns were mostly replaced by the start of the Pacific War by the superior 13 mm and 25 mm Hotchkiss guns.

China purchased 19 British guns pre-war.

Actual bore length was 62.5 calibers.           

Cleaning Information
Some part cleanup will be necessary. The 3D printing process uses a waxy substance to support certain part features during the printing process. Although the parts are cleaned by Shapeways, some waxy residue may remain.  It can be safely removed with water and a mild aqueous detergent like "Simple Green" using an old, soft toothbrush, Q-tips or pipe cleaners. During the printing process, liquid resin is cured by ultraviolet light. Microscopic bits of resin may remain uncured.

Let your parts sit in direct sunlight for a few hours to fully cure the resin.  
Water-based acrylic paints meant for plastics is strongly recommended. Other paints, especially enamels, may not cure on Frosted Detail 3D-printed plastics.
Use dedicated model sprue cutters to remove parts to minimise the risk of damage to parts.
