M1A1 Thompson Sub-Machine Gun (V2, LDD)
My second version of the M1A1 Thompson. I used LDD this time because of my having a lack of some of the pieces I needed, plus, this way I can easily make changes that you guys suggest before I (maybe) buy the legos to actually build it. PLEASE RATE ON THE DESIGN ITSELf, NOT THE FACT THAT I USED LDD. It's still all my design, and therefore takes 'skill' to think of and bring to life(someone once commented that I have no 'skill' because I used LDD. All right. My little rant is over. As for this Thompson, I have a sliding bolt (hard to isllustrate in LDD), semi correct handle, I couldn't get it quite as good as my M1928's handles were, completely smooth surfaces (no studs!!),extra clips and empty shell casings littering the area around the gun, and semi correct color. I also put little white bricks on either side of the body near the back to simulate the stamps that would be on the real thing stating the caliber, manufacturing plant, company, etc. For some reason, LDD's inventory of brown legos is extremely limited, so I used black for wook, and grays to highlight certain areas on the gun (bolt, clip, etc.). I know I'm gonna get something about the triangular gaurds on either side of the back sights missing, but I need to point out that I purposely left them off. They would be a pain to get right in LDD, plus, if you look at pictures of soldiers weilding M1A1's in WWII, you will see that many have removed these guards. They served no real purpose, and if you've seen a real M1A1 Thompson like I have, you might have noticed the four small screws on the triangular guards that could be removed to leave just the actual 'sight' part of the gun. I've also seen first hand a Thompson with these removed. Trust me. It's correct, there is nothing wrong with my sights. Please leaves some reviews and tell me what you think!

Pretty nice Thomspon, but just try to make the stock and grip brown. But otherwise it's great. Well Bohdan, not all my guns are colorfull anymore.

It didn't offend me I tell people so they understand the main purpose for my guns. I could make my guns life size, but it will end up technicolor like JongeJanssie's guns.

Well said. I have built some rubber band lego guns, so I do know how hard it is to cram details in. I was just giving some suggestions on how to make th oevrall appearence better, not any minute details. I'm sorry if it offended you though.
