Week 62 This week we get the second machine gun
The bits we received
And what we did with them
Exactly the same as week 4 which is repeated below
First off I assembled the nozzle and glued it to the brass rod. The nozzle took quite a bit of filing to get it half reasonable. Test fit the rest of the parts and make any adjustments that are necessary. I found that the fit was pretty good.
Then I washed the parts in thinners, let them dry and sprayed them with Halfords grey primer. The nozzle assembly and the insides of the barrel guard were then sprayed black.
Next I glued the main components together and spent ages removing the join lines with a needle file.
Watch this space - I need to buy some satin black paint before I can continue.
