A Rack of Lewis Guns


Recommended Posts

So you can buy your own Fokker or SPAD, then fit it out with dummy guns. Nice.

 

Our connections to the film industry allowed us access to real guns, and the molding techniques used to make movie props. We started with the three classic guns - the Vickers, the MkII Lewis Gun, and the German Spandau (or LMG08/15). Molds were created from the real guns, and this means that the smallest details end up being accurately cast. A rigid metal armature provides strength and forms the mounting points to the aircraft. The gun bodies are a combination of dense urethane and sheet metal. They are not light, but that is not a problem, since the aircraft are designed to carry much heavier weapons and ammunition. The guns are painted to simulate a worn metal and wood patina.
