    Hyper-firm blaster

    LOL
    it's not an EE-3, but the DLT-19
    I'm also doing a Sandtrooper, so I've been working on that costume too
    Here's my Hyper-firm Lewis gun well on it's way to full conversion
    I just finished painting it today & added the sling (not even fully cured yet)
    I know, the DLT-19's don't have wood-grain
    But it looks so pretty, I had to wood-grain it



    and a big ol' pic
    [/url]
    It still needs the ribbed tube & the greeblies, but it's on it's way.
    waddya guys think?

    Not necessarily
    IIRC
    The Real Lewis gun that Sci-fire molded was an early version with a wooden stock
    The later versions (used in ANH) were Bakelite stocks.
    or...
    They were resin casts painted black

    That's actually an MG42 in the pic there. Did Sandtroopers have those too? Besides the Lewis, I thought their only other long gun was the MG34 for the shoot in Tunisia. No?

    The Sandtroopers carried the MG-34, The Lewis Gun, and an MG-15

    the MG-42 seen here;

    is the one I carry with my Imperial Commando costume
    The MG-42 is used by Dengar in ESB as well, but not by Sandtroopers.
