Hi there, so while I'm waiting on some parts for my helmet I decided to start my T-21.

I'm using pandatroopers template. Most parts are from german hardeware stores, some are bougt from 501st members or online stores.

I've realised that the stock brush parts are to big so I orderd some at toschetarders.

The details are made of 2mm abs.

Nice work mate:duim:

Guess you could sand that butt stock some more, still looks a little boxy. Using an angle grinder with a sanding bit has done the job for me.

Thanks to @spOOL68 the T-21 kit finally arrived. He did send me a new one since the first is stuck in brazil. The emperor might know why. When I finished the weathering of the armor the T-21 will be the next stepp.

After approval and finishing my Bapty E-11 I'm back at the T-21. Just added some of the resin parts to the stock.

The cleaning brush housing is installed and I glued some magnets to the sight to hold it in position.

The barrel still needs a bit of work.

Nice work mate! :duim:

Have a look at some real Lewis Guns to get all the details right. 

It seems you are having some difficulties with your picturehost, as they look quite grainy, try flickr, for me it has worked fine... so far.

I'm missing the circels on the stock and I messed up the transition of the wooden stock an the black part (missing the word).  Might sand the paint away and finish it like the rest of the stock.

Decided to use fuelhose on the barrel.

I'm a bit coufused, does the greeblie I'm holding belong there or not? I know one goes on top of the barrel but I'm not sure with the bottom one. There are so many different version here and it's hard to tell from the screencaps.

The greeblie you are holding in the last pic belongs on top of the barrel, the other one not seen in your pics belongs at the bottom. Furthermore you should reposition the gas plug as it is found further to the front of the real Lewis gun. This will also give you more room to attach the lower greeblie. 

I'm sure it won't be very difficult for you to adjust the back part where the receiver housing meets the buttstock. 

Keep up the good work Paul:salute:

Thanks for the answers. Your T-21 in on a different level of detail BountyHunter, I'm not able to reach that.

Here is the barrel, still missing the blue wire

Still not sure what to do with the transition at the receiver housing and the buttstock. Just sanded and painted like the rest of the buttstock.

I'm quite happy how the endresult turned out, although there is always room for improvment. I'm exited for the first troop with it, it is so heavy.

Many thanks to Roger, Urs and all other troopers helping me.
