M1A1 Thompson Suggestions

Hey, I wanted to make this topic so you guys can post suggestions for my upcoming M1A1 Thompson project. I want this to be one of my best guns ever so I am taking any suggestions. I have the overall outline set in LDD but I want ideas on some little details I could add. It will use my semi auto mechanism to shoot rubber bands. All ideas are welcome and Thank You.

Well, look out with the stock, that's the hardest part. Please try to make it full scale, than it would be even better.

JJ, I don't know if its gonna be full scale, but it will be huge. And I think I have the stock down. I had to consult pictures when making that stock and it was hard. :)

Recommended strategy for making an accurate stock. Get a bunch of plates, bricks and slopes together, regardless of color and size. Print out the stock to the scale you want it and make sure you orient it correctly. Build the top and bottom portions of the stock first and fill in the gap as you go. When I make my M1A1-accurate stock, I will do my best to provide instructions for it, or an LDD file. After you build it in the multicolor scheme, put it in LDD and/or build it in one color. Let me know it you would like more help on that.

I think I have the stock done just fine. I just wanted suggestions on the Detail parts. Like the sights and safety, etc.

Try using the pieces I used on my G36C for sights.

Thompsons aren't the easyest gun to build. As far as advice look at my thompson, the stock is a pain, and is very had to build. I would reccommend using the brown pieces where needed, it makes it look more realistic.

The woord on the barrel needs to be very strong, and 7/10 length of the barrel, than the barrel wouldn't break.

Well thats the problem, i have no camera or cell phone (bcause i have no job either), because they r pretty expensive if u pay like $30 per month. Uh oh, i think i got off topic.
