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.
