Lewis gun replica
Gathering parts and materials for the Lewis gun build, so far made a plaster cast of a magazine, to be used as a “master” to make a mould for casting fibreglass mag covers.
Some definition shaping to do as this is a copy of a copy, so to speak. Definition suffers when multiple copies are made, so a little bit of reworking should result in a usable mould to knock out some realistic looking mag covers. The plan is to make a separate “snail” mag that is stationary, and a moving mag cover to simulate the real movement when firing.
This will of course take some time to perfect the action, so there will be no production of this until I have a reliable moving mag cover.
Hooray! Back on site! Bought this mag to copy, as I wasn’t too happy with the other one, it still may be useful, but this one has great detail, as soon as I’ve finished the backlog of Enfield no.4’s this becomes a priority.
