1/48 miniguns??
Posted by senojrn on Tuesday, April 1, 2003 9:42 AM
Anybody know where I could find some 1/48 miniguns?? Looking to arm an H-53 (actually, two 53's).
Or, if you know of any references and/or plans that would assist and facilitate scratchbuilding some of these weapons, that would be much appreciated, too.

If you have one or maybe 4 in your spares box that you would be willing to exchange for some money, please let me know, and I would be happy to REASONABLY help out.

Thanks!

In Minicraft's MH-60 there are 2 miniguns. I doubt you want to buy them so check with Minicraft and see if you can get them.

A minigun is basically a collection of cilinders. I once took the barrel from the minigun in the Revell Helicopter patrol kit and built the rest of the gun from the kits sprues. Because the parts are just cilinders (chamber housing, de-linking system and electo-motor), its a pretty easy. I built one in a 3D animation program, so had to research it pretty well. I've included a helpful link below. If you bear in mind the minigun is only 83cm's in length, you should be able to guestimate the rest of the dimensions pretty easily.

..in fact, just search for 'minigun' on Yahoo.. Loads of reference pics. Especially here: www.montysminiguns.com. Make sure your speakers are turned off though.
