    M134 Vehicle Mounted replica

    Yeah no worries. So the files were designed by a very talented graphic design engineer and technical artist. Mr. Jon Watson. Mr. Watson worked with the Degroat firm using parts supplied by them to take measurements and build the digital 3d files. This along with Mr. Watson's talent is why the...

    I'll now post a few more pics of the "mostly complete" M134 D. Just working on all the wiring and figuring out how I'm going to make an ammo can for it. I have files for the XM 23 can, and I have a real 1500 round ammo can, but no feed chute lid. As even just the lids for those 1500 round cans...

    M134 Vehicle Mounted replica

    Now its been a little bit but I have made some progress. So basically I use an old vehicle brake rotor as a base. Its heavy, circular, has an appropriate mechanical look and is not too flashy so it doesn't detract from the gun. I painted it and the custom swivel arm and mk 16 style "L" arm...

    Now let's talk about mounts!!! This is what this is all about. So let's kick it off with some work on the yoke. So I made myself stop mid build to take pictures of that things look like before I make them look all nice and real(well as real as I can make it look with my available skills). Here...

    M134 Vehicle Mounted replica

    Got all the barrels printed and finished, I painted them the same way as the body but also applied a light coat of graphite powder rubbed on with a paper towel to give them a subtle metallic sheen. Printing the yoke mount for the mk 16 mount assembly now, but here are some pictures of the...

    M134 Vehicle Mounted replica

    As stated before, just like on the real m134, I have heli coiled all the screw points. Since this is all plastic(except for the hardware, bearings, pins and feed chute adapter) this allows the take down and disassembly of the replica to occur without damage to the plastic and adds even more...
