    Which guns should I use to make a model of the Tredegar Automatic Rifle? OTL American guns preferred.

    Yeah the MP-41 was a big influence on my design and I used a lot of parts from a pic of it. I basically moved the magazine further back.

    I used the Johnson M41 for my alt-BAR, you could probably still do something different with it by using parts from other guns like the OTL BAR.

    Or you could you the Johnson 1940 rifle design.

    Or bits of both.

    Hm, what about the regular Confederate rifle, like what the Freedom Party Guardsman has in that first art?

    Hey, I like this one!! Like a cross between an MP-40 and Grease Gun. It looks really neat.

    It was an idea by rvbomally and I liked it so I ran with it and I also like the way it turned.
    I'm thinking of maybe getting an inexpensive spring powered M3 and MP-40 and try to make a wall hanger of this design.

    Indeed! Well, what would you name it/designated as? Also what about the wooden stock one you made? Cause I'm just going to keep calling it the Griswold unless stated otherwise XD

    I called it the SMG2 for lack of a better name. For the wooden stock gun, people here seem to like Griswold and I use to have a friend many years ago we nick-named Griswold so I'm fine with that.

    Righty. How about... M37 Griswold for the woodstock, banana mag gun. For the stamped metal one... how about M40/41 Joslyn. I am literally making up names lol

    An almost-complete miniature of a Confederate Army soldier. I still need to fix some of the paint, put highlights on the gun, and add the decals on the jacket.

    Why'd you post it sideways? Other than that, it looks cool.

    It’s not showing up sideways on my browser. But I did post this from my phone.

    Nice! So, what's part of this model here? What's the gun? Looks promising so far.

    Almost all of it is the standard Tamiya US Army soldier that comes with the M41. I added two pouches to the front from a Dreamforce Games bits sprue.

    The gun is a cut-down M1 Carbine, with a grip from an MG-42 and an extended magazine that’s just a piece of plastic I cut into shape. I then made a cast of this and recast it in epoxy putty, so I can make multiple copies of the same gun with ease.

    Nice!! So the gun is the M1 carbine with an MG-42-like grip and an extended magazine? I think @cortz#9 would be interested in a design like that! I do like your model there! Looks really similar to the picture below here!

    The gun is the experimental US M2 Hyde.

    Here's my first take on the M2 Hyde. I'm open to suggestions for improving the design rvbomally.
