Orion Maxim Gun
This is the Orion Quad Maxim AA gun. One of the problems with this 1/72nd scale kit is that the base it too low for the figure they have firing the weapon. In the real gun the base was adjustable.
I cut down the original base and added a bit of wire to replace it so the machine guns would sit higher up.
Some of the guns as I was building them. Each part had the flash trimmed and was made ready. Two points for anyone who can identify the flag in the upper left corner! Its from the WWII era.
I mounted the gun on a thick base and the base is separate from the gunner.
The gun builds up pretty well, but I think if I need more I will invest in metal ones.
