I'm really happy to see you back on this project. You sure have been really busy, the last few months (not that you aren't usually very busy). I'm real anxious to see this one finished up and available.

Yes and pick up the pace.. Just kidding, but I would really love to have one of those. Are you planning to make the trailer as well or is this just for the M16? Detail is mind blowing.

Hey Dave,

Is that a Stargate?


Terrific work, like usual.

Hi All,

Mounts for the 50's made, will work on the brackets and adjusters next. We're getting closer to being able to see it with the guns in place Exclamation

Cheers

Dave

Mind boggling detail work Dave.

I can not wait to see these parts mounted in someone's M16 half track. Incredible.

best regards
Tim

Hi All,

I've just finished detailing the first gun drum and also made some more of the gun mounting parts, including the frame that takes the mags. I will have to get some of these parts moulded before I can get the full setup done as there is no way I am going to make 4 of each part Rolling Eyes

I have spent a lot of time over the last few days looking at pics of the two front gun mounts and I am still not 100% sure as to how they are made. I know this is a long shot but does any one have any that are unmounted and could be photographed without everything else around them?

Cheers

Dave

Dave, I don't know if these will help but I added some pics I have collected to the SAG Gallery,

Not what you asked for as the M2s are mounted.

I am sure I have some shots of the carriage without any guns mounted. I will keep looking.

Gallery with more pics,

Hi Sixth Vanguard,

Thanks for those, the underneath shots help but if you can find anymore I would be grateful.

Best regards

Dave
