I'm a big fan of the sandtrooper weapons and after scratchbuilding a DLT-19 (MG34) for my custom mando (see pics of it here http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/showthread.php?t=33826 ) I thought I would take on the task of making the Lewis gun.
I couldn't find any useful tutorials but I found this pic on TK-409's website
After seeing that I just whipped out some paper and a ruler and started making my own templates..
Then transfered the templates onto a piece of 3/4" thick wood twice...
After cutting them out, I glued the two pieces together then put screws in to hold it.
Then I started on the barrel. I used a piece of 3" pvc, 2" pvc, and a 3" to 2" reducer. I put those pieces together then put a piece of flex pipe (not sure what it's really called) over part of the 3" pipe...This is what I have so far!
Let me know what you think.
