Build a realistic Spandau machine gun for your German WWI model!
Construction Plans & How-To
The Flying Aces Club (FAC) World War I mass launch event is always a hit at our indoor and outdoor model meets (check the calendar on this site and join us to see for yourself).
FAC Rules for the WWI mass launch event specify that 3D armament must be present on all models participating.
Clubster William Skelly found that many WWI flying scale model construction plans offer sketchy, if any, instructions describing how to make the machine guns.
William tackled the issue head-on by drawing his own plans for the Spandau machine gun on his latest model of a German Fokker D VII fighter aircraft (see pics on the Photos page).
We’re very pleased to share with you his plans and construction article. Now you too can have realistic Spandau guns on your model.
