WWII Weapons Picture Thread

Recommended Posts

Well let's kick start this thread again... :D

 

From this...

to This:

Still a bit of a work in progress, I'm not happy at all with the 'wooden' grips yet, still need to get the shade right for those. I also went for more of the 'late war, hodgepodge' effect in finishes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Slainte!

Excellent work as always, Guinness...

 

Now, why, oh why can't they make us a decent KAR98K, SMLE, and 1903 with JG BAR-10 internals? Or a nice M1 carbine AEG for that matter?

^I'd love an M1 carbine :D. Hopefully AGM or JLS could make one - they seem to be the only Chinese manufacturers designing new guns rather than copying them (the MG44, FN2000, and SCAR just as examples).

"2ndbat" on WW2AA makes custom Garands.

 

Slowly but surely, we-re getting gats that aren't based on "Movie Hero Guns".

 

Somebody out there has money for an airsoft Martini-Henry. Dreyse Needleguns, Chassepots too.

 

Hell, AGM could take their old MP 40's and put the guts into Chauchats- they'd be nice and faulty, just like the real-steel!

What I'm working on:

Arnold's 1919 Hip-fire from T3.

added a sand and extra coat of stain to the stock- It's not a red as the picture makes it appear.

 

The look I am going for on this one in a late war weapon thrown together with whatever parts were available that day. A blued trigger group, a stock replaced from another rifle and a unfinished steel receiver that has seen it share of use, gun grease and the elements.

lol, thanks, I'm flatttered :blush: I actually have a bunch of work out on Flickr now, just not any Airsoft. My good Airsoft gallery is out on PBase, just look up alvarezimaging, then go to 'all galleries'

 

I do have most of the guns out on the Facebooks, but not under my super-hero identity of course... ;)

 

 

 

 

 

Slainte! It's St. Patty's Day!

thought this should go in here since there is no WWI thread.

 

My Lee Enfield No.1 MKIII, based on a BAR10 action.

Would have got a few pictures with the bayonet attached but my camera promptly died :(

Still needs about 2 more coats of varnish to make sure its nice and tough, but it shoots like a dream and is quite unique :)

 

comments welcome!

WW2AA

 

I copied this guys guide to do it, only mine is a little rougher due to my limited access to power tools.

I didn't take pics while I was doing it unfortunately, and a lot of it was trial and error on my part, but Tommygunner's pics over at that link should prove very useful, they helped me no end :)

 

future developments for this will include the acquisition of a suitable looking scope and a chopped down rail system to give the impression of a WW1 snipers weapon, or a Australian Lithgow No.1 MkIII sniper.

 

glad you like it DL :)

99.9% done with my DBoyi K98k Gas weathering :)

I wanted to try some of the various 'Cold Bluing' solutions, but when I started to polish the receiver with a polishing disk on my Dremel, I foundthat DBoyis is hiding a beautiful blued paint finish under the matte black all you have to do is use a bit of polishing to find it.

Damn Guiness, those guns are like more WW2 than the real ones!

 

Here they are in order of my preference (based on the finished you've applied, not just in general):

1. K98k

2. Thompson

3. Garand

4. Stg44

Kind of a 'before and after' shot :D

I was playing around with trying to 'parkerize' my Marushin M1 Garands, the stock black just doesnt appear realistic.

Very possible AGM MG42 and PPSH!

 

There is also a very distinct possibility that another version will be available very soon (approx 3-4 months) which will be at least £100 cheaper. We asked AGM last May to make it for us but all the Olympics security issues caused a lot of problems for the Chinasoft industry and the delays and mould seizures put a stop to that for now. AGM's MG42 was supposed to be released last December! Which is their next one BTW.......then the PPSh-41 smile.gif

How's the performance of that gas dboy's KAR98K, Guinness?

 

Lovely photos as always.

 

Still waiting on a propane adapter- bought the one from RSOV and it doesn't fit the green Coleman propane cans :(

 

....Shoulda just got the AEX one, there's a $30 dollar lesson lol

 

Anyway, I love the gun, I have shot it a few times when it was bone stock, I think the gas versions using propane may shoot a bit hot so now I am anxious to make sure I didn't gunk her up with wood stain and metal shavings lol. I have been unable to get the danged recoil lug out of the stock- which is a PITA because it causes a ridge ring around the two sides in the finish, and it makes it hard to make sure the gun is clean.
