I would like to avoid as much as possible opening the gearbox.
I was so wondering if it is really vital to remove the full/semi auto selector plate and the intermittent electric lever? If one removes the selector switch, is it really important to remove the pieces in the gearbox, or can one simply set the selector to fully auto then remove the switch and bondo over it ?
In my opinion, the answer should be yes... but in fact I'm not sure of if and I realy would have like to know before trying anything.
Back to fake-bake contributions, here is my (old) attempt at it!
I used Burnt Umber color for base, and then mottled black spots on it with a sponge that I later smudged out with a dry one until the grips were almost dark-brown. Put some clear coat on it, sandpapered, more clear coat and finally brushed it with some steel wool.
My MP40 has been sold for a while now, but it was a fun project and the colors came out very much like the ones on my old radio from the 50'ies...
Dracul: It looks like it lost a lot of steam and I now feel bad for randomly dropping off.

stuka: I mean it's not your fault. It is interesting though that things are falling off as we are finally getting our ww2 guns with the type 38/96 and the enfield as well as it recieving a new loading system, it's kind of unfortunate

Dracul: I don't know, maybe its because all the guns are becoming available, there is a decreasing need for the forums.

Dracul: Most of the talk was about making guns, as all the uniform info was already out there, but now the weapons are out there and are usually decent quality.

stuka: well the forum is and should still be useful for updates on guns, creating groups/events and building kits

Dracul: I think Redwolf has a Enfield. If not or not longer, then not until G&G releases theirs. The old gas Iron Airsoft brand SMLE isn't carried by anyone anymore and was such piece of crap. Not worth trying to track one down.
