German "RAMBO" WWII (white metal).

Posted by Jaques on 26 Nov 2013, 17:34

Hi friends.

Despite being without much time to post, as I explained before, I'm always seeing the excellent forum Benno and admiring the work of very nice friends. :thumbup: :thumbup:

After making the molds and casting of my colonial figures, left a little silicone and made the figure below.
I always enjoyed in my youth to see the "Rambo" shoot an M-60, so I did the German "version" WWII firing an MG-34. :oops: :oops: :lol: :lol: :lol:


I hope you like. ;-)


The inspiration :

Parts in white metal :

The figure :

The base is Revell German WWI with some cartridges fired into ground. :

In the end, a more realistic option :

But it is!
It is possible to shoot a MG34 like this!
It is possible with a MG3 of the german Bundeswehr, which is very mutch like a MG42, but you wont hit very mutch...

Hi WULT. :thumbup:

Thank you for your post.
I'm no expert, but perhaps contributing to the discussion, at least in several photos of propaganda, it is possible.

Yes, I've read some memoires and if there was no time soldiers where actually shooting from hips...
So, Rambo is realistic.., a bit... ...deep, psychological war drama... I like Rambo too! :)

It´s perfectly possible to fire an MG34 / 42 from a Standing Position, either from the hip or the shoulder, they even trained to do such

Either way, this would be a good figure to mount on the rear gun of a half track :sst:

Manual instructions ,that's the way to do it. Very interesting Peter thanks for posting! As for the other photo`s I hope all those lads survived that terrible war.
With one side of my pondering face resting firmly on my hand and oddly just thinking about it,yes of course Rambo is realistic and he didn`t just read the manual he ate it too. Although he did spit out the staples. BB

And when I think of it, what kind of bow had a magazine? :scratch::

technically, the quiver could be the Magazine but there´s types/kinds of bows with magazines, ;-)

Nothing's like a real mystery! :sherlock: Since there isn't any delicate information here it doesn't matter that much, it is just strange.
