Help needed MG3 on Triopd pictuers

Post by UshCha » 11 Aug 2018, 17:34

Folks the weather is getting better (cooler) so I can get in my Mancave, which at the top of the house was too hot to be comfortable despite insulation. So I want to get back to sculpting simple 12mm figures. My next target is the MG3 on a tripod, critical for defense. I seem to be having a hard time getting decent pictures of the weapon on the tripod and even more so with the gunner and number 2. Can anybody point me to a few pictures?

Thanks Brian

Pretty much what I suspected, but was too lazy to search, its the same as the MG42/34, which is not unsurprising since the gun is a reworked MG42 with NATO cartridges.
Anything bigger than 6 is TOOOO big.

Yep I had found them but the shots don'y really show the operators that well, I am not good at drawing stuff I can't see. Plus scaling without a full figure is harder and I have not got good dimensions for the tripod or the gun. However thanks for trying.
