Re: Project request: MG34 top cover loan

Hi, I don't know if this might help if your intending to make an MG34. I made one a few years back. Here's the thread on the build. unfortunately a lot of the pics are gone. I'm sure I've still got them if you're interested. https://www.ww2airsoft.org.uk/php/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=15652&...

Colourised black and white Arnhem photos

I've been having a look at some of the colourised WW2 black and white photos online and decided I'd try and do one. As I'm in the middle of reading Antony Beevor's new book on Arnhem (excellent!) so I picked an Arnhem photo that has always stayed in my mind because of their expressions. It's of 4 wa...

Re: Thanks

Thoroughly enjoyed the game. As mentioned the gameplay was great, much more tactical play than usual which showed the importance of having good squad leaders. Nice to see some new faces, fair play to the Cornwall crew coming up to Sussex. Sounds like they enjoyed themselves. Look forward to the next...

Re: K98 Springer Projects

Filed a bit more out of the mag well in the stock, so the mag is now flat on the barrel assembly. Glued a 3mm piece of ply on the bottom of the mag which fits flush with the stock, Put about 40 rounds through it today. no miss feeds, so I'm hoping it sorted.

Re: K98 Springer Projects

Finally finished the K98. I gave it 2 coats of different dyes to get it a bit reddish. Left it for 3 days to dry properly and waxed it with some dark wax. It's come up OK , better than I thought. The breech and barrel sections fitted in well, but I had to inset the magazine into the stock by 3mm, be...

Custom WW2 Airsoft mug

Bit quiet at work last week. I've realised people in our place get very upset if you use their particular mug, so I decided to design one of my own to stop them moaning! It's a wraparound image using a slightly embellished version of the forum logo and a selection of ww2 soldiers both allies and axi...

Re: K98 Springer Projects

Done a bit more this week. Made the rear sight. I used an original k98 range blade and then made the rest out of 2mm ali sheet JB welded together. Pretty fiddly old business but it worked. Mounted it on the barrel and cut a couple of strips of 1.5 mm sheet and glued them down either side leaving a c...

Re: K98 Springer Projects

I've done some more over the last couple of weeks. Finished the barrel and front sight. Made up the bayonet bracket and fitted a cut down K98 cleaning rod. Cut the hole in the stock for the strap and recessed the strap fitment area on both sides and armourers support discs and the top wooden part of...

Re: K98 Springer Projects

Working off the scale drawings, the disc measured around 28mm. The roofing washer is 29mm, so I hope it's close enough!

Re: K98 Springer Projects

Been doing a bit more to my scratch- built lookalike K98. Once I'd cut and sanded down the softwood stock, I routed out the breech and barrel cuts. I bought a 16mm round nose bit to match the 16mm steel tube barrel and used a 25mm round nose to take out most of the breech. As I've only used my route...
