Link to WIP thread. So much of it was fitting small pieces that it was hard to document it meaningfully. Much different than an aircraft model in that the large assemblies were pre made and all the time was in attaching things that were mostly complete but of which there were a zillion fiddly ones.

Pete, being that you’re in Arizona and this is in Texas, could you just not fit a real 1919?  They’re certainly out there..

Awesome job, BTW, and good to see you building 

They’re too expensive just to have a barrel poking out and the mount in the turret is for a GPMG. The 1911 mounts are impossible to get because they were all removed and trashed when they were replaced by GPMGs.

Yeah I hear you there. Real air cooled tax stamp 1919s sell for around 30-35.  For that money, I’d have a 34, a 42, or an MG3, even though they’re still active duty all over the world.
