    I have no clue about guns, even worse on machine guns.

    Thanks for confirming that it looks appropriate.

    I used these two pictures without knowing whether they are a proper reference of the real thing almost 80 years ago. I think they are referenced as M31 machine guns.

    Az, it's going to be hard to provide regular new info for your daily dose, printer is printing 10 hours per day, but nothing much else worth showing going on. Working mostly on documentations.

    Here's how I hope to fix the mating of the tub. I started with your overlap comment a couple of pages down, then wanted to make sure it would not slip one way or the other. So I came up with this extrusion on the back side and added screw tabs under to attach the two portions together.

    The opposite has a 0.1mm wider slot for tolerance so it fits easier.

    Here's the last two days of printing non stop

    The military green is a bit lighter shade than I wish it'd be, but it beats painting the parts. Side by side comparison is not helping, but by itself I think it will be close enough.
