Neat ! The KM did at times fight as a ground force. E.g. Norway in 1940 after the UK sunk @ 10 of their Destroyers.

Very nice, but should that machine gun be feeding from the other side?

Pretty awesome looking!

Something of a schoolboy error. I don't think it's reversed picture, either

Oops ! huh?

Which ones were they? The British GPMG that I fired fed from the left. Never fired them but images show the M60, .30 and .50 cals feeding from the left. Unless those images were reversed of course.

I had to check my FMs, etc. the M60 and .50 feed from the left too ?!?!?!? huh? old fart Sorry … I'm losing my mind ! frown Getting old sucks !!!! huh? old fart I'm left handed so everything is backwards to me … frown And the charging handle on both are on the right … if for no other reason than most people are right handed, AFAIK …

Yes AFAIK all the Maxim derived MG's fed from the right, which included the MG08 and the Vickers.

Glad you like them boys!. (smile)

Looking at the pic I am wondering if the ammo belt is a seperate casting. If so you could glue it on the other side which would work ok.

Steve Wilcox02 Oct 2018 2:58 p.m. PST

Interestingly, the regular German line of figures they have, has the correct direction of feed for Germans 8: Greatcoated MG-08 team:

I'm thinking it is a separate casting …

My reply was to a post which was subsequently changed, thereby altering the apparent meaning of what I wrote.

Legion 405 Oct 2018 7:31 a.m. PST

Yes, I changed that post after I did some research … As my comment was inaccurate. As I said my memory ain't what it used to be. old fart

And with things like loading/reloading weapons, etc., those became a reaction vs. actually having to think about it. old fart I'm sorry if there was any confusion, etc. …

I had a Homer Simpson "DOH" moment !!!! huh?
