Forward & Aft 50 Cal stops and 50 Cal spent cartridge hopper not sure if I will use the hopper yet?
Still being very much a metal fabrication novice , doing the stops rate the toughest project yet with every piece having to conform with the turret ring , plus bends, shaping & getting the heights right , much reworking & a few choice words for something that might look simple , which I quickly found out was not.

Nope, that doesn't look simple at all... especially with how small it is. I'd go nuts!

50 Cal machine gun mount with scratch built trigger assembly. And parts to assemble the second trigger group. At this scale detailing has its limits, the working space in tiny, & you can only do so much fabricating parts. Following the weapons blueprints I got it as close as I could.

Twin 50 Cals with mounts ready to prime. As master model builder Gene Berger is always telling me “anything worth doing is worth redoing “ I did not like the first trigger assembly So did it again, Sometimes you have to use a few 3D parts , however working around 3D printed parts at this scale is very fragile, so I combined scratch built with 3D one a better look & 2 I really broke up the original parts.
