What do you think is the hardest gun to model?

The hardest gun I can think of to model is probably the MG-34 because of the size and nature of the gun. How on earth would someone replicate the round barrel with the random vent holes? Or how about the size for a change... the gun is over 1000mm long (I believe). We all have to remember that Legos can only go so far due to the lack of some elements, but that should never stop you from trying a gun!

I would have to say the m4. It is the only gun I have posted 4 (soon to be 5) times each with improvements. It is especially difficult when you try and make every feature work. If you only pick a few features, its not so bad, but I like having all features work. The gun is also extreemly detailed.

I have made a PPSH-41 before with the wooden stock. Adding the wire stock wouldn't be that hard... it would just be really flimsy.

No, both are very closely related for the fact they use almost identical firing mechanisms, ejection ports, barrel configurations, and safety positions. The only difference between the two is the all metal construction and the use of the supplied wire stock. The only reason the '43 was made was because the '41 was too expensive. All they did was take out the stock and made it much cheaper.

Twin Villar Perosa. Don't even try to beat that. I know you won't.

Heck yes! I will!

*Edit*

I can't find any picture showing it's details. And I think I can't fit any reasonable firing mechanism inside it... Maybe later... But I'm sure it's beatable.

Tough I think, the PTRS-41 is the bardest to replicate: the main body is not that hard to make, but how on earth would someone make a four foot barrel strong enough to stay in one piece?

Next to that, the MAS-38 is pretty hard to do, because of the weird body shape. Just take a look: http://www.maquetland.com/v2/images_articles/PM%20MAS%2038-WEB.JPG

Thank you! But right now I'm planning an PPS-43, so this could be a future project. Now I need to figure out a mechanism that fits in there...

Making a firing minigun isn't hard... just get the barrels rotating and add the rubber bands with the string. Adding a belt just takes a motor and the belt part in sync with the barrels. Sounds like a challenge but it wouldn't be that hard.

I mean like firing Lego rods and make the belt move through a cover so it can move easily

Making an actual belt that fed ammunition to a firing mechanism would be almost impossible however, if you just made a standard rubber band firing model then added a separate motor which would gear into a tank tread at the same speed of the barrels then you would get the effect.

I have tried this model before, yes indeed it was hard and it ended up being an MG-42, if you want to see mine go to my page, Thanks

the MAS-38 looks really easy! very simple. and yes, the barrel would be impossible unless some bonding agent were used (or you heated the bricks til' they welded together?) but both of those are kindof cheating...

are the guns limited to man-portable? because if not...

I think the toughest man-portable firearm to build out of legos would either be a minigun or the Multiplas rifle from Fallout New Vegas (just because of the complexity and rarity of some of the colors)

feel free to correct or agree with me :)

M4 is easy to make but if you want there as much details and working things as your M4 it's REALLY hard to make! I made one whit a carrying handle and there was no room for charging handle because of the top slopes! I didn't make it movable because of that!

He said: 'What is the HARDEST gun to model.' Not the most impossible.

There are a lot of hard guns to model but for me it would have to be the Galil Assult Rifle or A working Brick shooting 1:1 scale model of the M4A1 CQBR
