I want to ask Marder II: How do you get such a big picture on your homepage? Can you please tell me?

Also, J.J. do you know what the height of the Mossberg 500 is?

Actually not. I made one, but that was fully build on improvisaton. But I think it's 5-6 brick heigh.

I have somewhat of an answer. You need a high resolution image to begin with. You can either upload it to MOCpages or another site like PhotoBucket. You'll probably want to resize it so it fits on most screens. Marder II's image is originally 1024px x 620px scaled to 550px x 400px. The code to get a proportional image as wide as Marder II's is <img src="http://i361.photobucket.com/albums/oo51/MarderII/LegoFirearms.jpg"; width=550> (get rid of the semicolon that was automatically put there by MOCpages...)

I'm not going to build it any more. my prototype didn't work. I would still like to make a P90 though.

Hmmm that is tough to find. You could do a tri-barrel one with a scope like Jack did. I am pretty sure its just a metal pin with some sort of front opening for the sight. Sorry I can't help you anymore than that.

JJ, I uploaded the picture to photobucket. Then I got the html code for it from there then I put it in the mocpages code. From there I sized it until I got it to fit. This how I think I did it anyway.

Well, that's the problem: Photobucket doesn't accept my name and password!

Are you trying to log into an existing account on photobucket? Or are you using your mocpages password and stuff. Cause if you are you need to make an account!

Are you using you MOCpages account username? You can't have any spaces in the username on photobucket. Also, I don't think you can have spaces in the password either.
Can you post a link to your homepage on photobucket Marder?
Mine's here:

Jack Streat? I didn't really see the sights on his. I'll look around. If anyone else can help me just say something.

Try the following; it's info and detail pics of the PS90, aka the civilian version of the P90.

And here's a pic looking through the sight

There is no actual specs for a height, since it depends on the stock. Here's a bunch of info specs on Massberg 500 products.
http://www.mossberg.com/products/default.asp?id=3&display=specs
Some info about stocks
http://www.mossberg.com/content.asp?ID=532&section=safety
The next best way is to model it after a specific one, get the highest res image of it's side, enlarge the image to full size, then measure the height from there. Now if you could get your hands on one, just measure it directly. Good luck.

Just curious...tri-barrel? What does the sight have to do with the barrel and where is it on Jack's P90?

I try to make an account.I think it all goes wrong with the postal code. I live in Holland, not in Canada or USA.

i think he meant 'tri-rail'. there is only one barrel (obviously), but there are 2 types of sights - red dot scope (the one that most people build), and tri-rail, which has no scope at all, on the real thing you would add your own sights.
so yeah - on a P90 TR, there are NO standard sights AT ALL - not even backup ones like on the red dot scope
hope that helps

Thanks, but I abandoned that project. The reason I need the height was because I use Microsoft Word to make my full-size printouts and it would have been easier to size it by the height. I just remembered that I could enter the length and Microsoft word would size it for me. The reason I stopped is because I couldn't get mine to work as well as J.J.'s version. I might try again later though.

Does anyone know the width of the Barrett 98 Bravo? I think it would be around 6 studs wide, but I can't find the actual measure of it.

i nead to now how to make a durable good handle thats not too slanted bot good for an aualt rifle like westons battle rifle handle


The way I did that handle was using some technic bricks. In both the handle and the attachment brick. Then inserted some technic pins in one hole on each side, then for the last hole I just used a technic axle, since I couldn't fit a connecter in. Elsewise it would break.

Well I might sound like a complete idiot but how do you put that "forwad assist plunger" (I'm not shure what it is) the stick at the upper reciever behind the ejection port... I just can't figure it out... And maybe I don't even have the needed pieces or it...

Quoting A Dying Breed
Does anyone know the width of the M16A4's reciever? I think it should be a maximum of 8 studs around the buffer tube and 6 studs in general. The length, I know, should be 25 studs (Thank you Cole). Also, I logged out of my YouTube account and it won't let me log back on. I am using the right username and password.
Around the bolt should be 6, the grip should be 4, the magazine should be 3 thick and 8 wide, the magazine opening should be 5, the carrying handle should be 3, the receiver itself should be 26 long. Any parts I didn't mention are 4 wide. I used 1:1 pictures for my Diemaco, which is very similar to the M16.

Yes I think it would be 6 studs wide too! But sometimes gun measurements are around 4 and half or 5 that's hard to build and make strong...
