This is my first nonfiring Lego gun model, and I enjoyed building it very much. As you can see, it has more detail than my older, firing models [no longer on this site]. For example, the handle can be thin because it does not house a trigger mechanism, the sights and bolt handle can be placed in the right spots because rubber bands will not be placed on the top, and there are very few technic holes in the model. Overall, I'm quite happy with this MOC, and I feel that the photos I've taken of it are a nice step torwards better pictures of my MOCs.
Here is a shot of the right hand side. This provides an excellent view of the stock, handgrip, and most of all ejection port, which is seen indented into the reciever above the handle. Magazine is "out"
And another left side shot. Here, the gun is sitting on the grip, and it can be seen that the magazine does not actually insert into the grip, but is simply an extension of it. I did this so that it would not be too thin.
My Ingram lying on the book "Military Small Arms of the 20th Century, 7th edition". This book in invaluable for precise gun measurements, and has many side-on pictures good for making size calculations. The picture of the real Ingram Model 10 is just below my gun's trigger guard, and the earlier Ingram Model 6 is above the bolt handle for those interested.
All right, here we go ... (+)1. better than my MAC10 came out -- (-)2. trigger guard is too "square" -- (-)3. magazine is too short -- (-)4. magazine? it should slide out -- (-)5. bolt doesn't move. I tried to make it functional but failed miserably -- (+)6. sights are well placed -- (+)7. barrel is actually round -- (+)8. handle is well-made (there are very few curves on the MAC10) -- (-)9. just a little too bulky. The MAC10 is a tough gun to make -- OVERALL: 4 out of 5 [KEEP UP THE WONDERFUL WORK ROBERT]
You did a very good job at building this. Putting in a lot of detail. But maybe that details not very good on something like this. Just a suggestion, try using your building talents on something other then war MOCs. Again, that was just a suggestion.
