The discussion of the Alien series of films and the props used in them is the aim, but if it's got Big Bugs and Big Guns, then they are welcome too!

Better Late than never, hmm? :lol:

here at last are the photos of the muzzle brake I made - :D

Thanks to Sidewinder for his guidance in making this bit Accurate !

It is made from PVC, not metal,
but the muzzle it is attached to is metal,
and came with the MG-42 airsoft !

My second comment for the day !
Here are two pix of my ammo drum, somewhat modified to make it look more screen accurate -
Not much info to go on with this, but I think maybe it is close ??
The LED ammo counter is a decoy at the moment, but I have a working counter I will install sooner or later !! :o
All constructive criticism is welcome ! :delta:


Questions are also welcome, I might add ! :mrgreen:

Very True! Time I got back to business.
I am thinking I should actually "start at the beginning"
as the pix above rather start in the middle, as it were.
Betting a few of you are interested in seeing how it got to where it is ??
;)

Well, yes... "The beginning" being ( If that's built on a Shoei ) "How in the HELL did you find one of those? ( And what the hell do you do for a living? )" :p

Good eye, Scapey !

It is a Shoei. I bought it New from a dealer way back in 2006.
Got a pretty good price, imho, all things considered.

As for my line of work,
I'm a technical service engineer,
with a company that provides the hardware
which keeps your local Petrol Station pumping.

Yeah, I figured. There are other manufacturers that make non-GBB versions that aren't quite expensive. I was wondering if it might be one of those, instead.

Okay - going back in our time machine I found the pix i took of the MG42 before the conversion process began.
These pix may be boring for some of you, but for those who want to know all the gory details, I feel obligated to post 'em.

An interesting side note to this early phase of construction :
The factory cocking handle mechanism got broken in transit,
and being made from "pot-metal" could not be brazed or welded or epoxied.
So the complete cocking mechanism you see in these photos is from a real MG42.
I bought it on gunbroker dot com for a very reasonable price,
and it fits and works perfectly, and is built from German high-carbon steel :lol:

Further along you will see a few more real MG42 parts that have been incorporated
for one reason or another !

Sean - Got any links, dude?

David - I call dibs if you ever die in a horrible accident or something.
Oh, BTW, I have a late Xmas card for you. What's your address, again?

Just out of interest, did you end up keeping the airsoft internals?

Yes, all the airsoft internals have been retained.
I want to be able to rock-n-roll, you know !
wink, wink.
will run her off compressed CO2 with regulator to get pressure down to spec.
and a long, thin flex line to get the pressure down to the gun.
Line will run with wiring along the support arm, so it will not be obvious !

Color camera, and the worlds smallest LCD video monitor, with teeny tiny magnifying lens to improve my view of it !! :D
Also a small box full of batteries and electronics, which processes the image from camera and displays it on the monitor.
completely self contained, and hidden inside the chest armour ! :D
