RT-97C - made with real parts ...

Recommended Posts

Over the years, I've found the parts to build a true RT-97C:

- Deactivated MG15 in transport box
- single point scope
- Enfield Scope with mount
- and finally a "Tabby Type F" of the RAF

Well, you could, if you wanted ... but should I really mount the parts on the MG? Drill holes in the bakelite and screw on the scopes? I think no. I will present the pieces individually in my collection and enjoy it. :lol:

Here are some pics of the pieces:

That's a great collection of parts Thomas. It must had been hard/ time consuming to come by them all. Makes sense to leave them in original condition. Looks awesome!

What the ****, Thomas?!? I’ve been hunting the Tabby for ages now...

There was a eBay auction only a few years ago and it sold under $50 iirc, I was down in frustration for weeks back then...

Congratulations, what a great find, bro!   :peace:

 

Can’t wait to see these beauties assembled by the master!

Very good photos, especially of the Tabby where you can see the lathe marks on the brass front piece (as printed in 3D!).

Thanks for sharing
