IF YOU RATE IT POORLY, PLEASE TELL ME WHY YOU DID, SO I CAN NOT MAKE THE MISTAKE IN THE FUTURE. THIS TOOK ME A VERY LONG TIME, AND I WOULD LIKE ANY CRITICISM!!!!!
This is my final version of the Heckler and Koch G36 C. This is the EXACT version of the G36 C I took to the contest. It took second place, because, unfortunately, this was a model contest, and the Lego gun qualified because it was plastic, but it was judged by mostly old adults, who took appreciation to the model of the Jetson's car displayed next to my silly plastic gun. Haha, im just kidding. Yes the guy who made the model of the Jetson's car deserved it more, because I could really tell he put a lot of work into it. Of course, since the gun was Lego, it took no painting. I had a lot of fun building it, and I am extremely grateful for all the help I recieved in constructing this version. Thank you to the following:
Here is the paper I typed up to be displayed next to my G36C.
The G36 C is a “compact” or “commando” assault rifle manufactured in Germany by the Heckler and Koch (pronounced “coke” in English) company, as a variant of their G36 family of assault rifles. Heckler and Koch created the G36 in the early 1990s for the Bundeswehr (the armed forces of Germany). The Bundeswehr had requested a new service rifle to replace the 1950s G3. Heckler and Koch answered with the revolutionary G36. They created many variants of the weapon, the G36 K (kruz: short), SL8 (designed for the civilian market), and the G36 C. The G36 C is a gas-operated system with a rotating bolt locking into the barrel extension. The charging handle is located on top of the bolt carrier, and can be hinged to the left or the right. The plastic stock falls to the side, to create an even more compact weapon. The carrying handle on the top of the gun doubles as a picitanny rail system, with sights located on either ends. The picitanny rail system is designed for mounting various sights and scopes.
The Lego version you see here mimics several of the functions of the real thing while retaining the basic shape of the weapon. It includes the following: Folding stock, removable magazine, working trigger, working fire selector with 2 settings, (white) safe and (red) semi-automatic. It also includes accurate sights, and a functional ejection port. There are 4 nubs on the front sides which allow mounting rails to be attached and several accessories to be mounted such as a flashlight, laser sight, and vertical handgrip. The G36 C and the Lego versions statistics are listed below, and are easily compared. Take into account that the Lego version does not fire, and is considerably lighter.
Lego G36 C Real G36 C
Length=27’’ Length= 28.27’’
Weight=1.8 lbs Weight=6.28 lbs
Caliber=Lego of course! Caliber=NATO5.56 x 45 mm rounds
Magazine=Removable Magazine=10, 30 or 100 round magazines
R.O.F. (rate of fire) =N/A R.O.F. =750 rpm (rounds per minute)
Now take a gander at the pictures, and I will let you guys be the judges. Thanks for all your help!
This is pretty much the only section I modified, I added noodle bricks to make the curves smoother, and I changed the fire selector design. NOTE: The white means safe, and red means semi auto. The safety does actually work.
This is a very well-made lego gun. I have seen and shot the real thing, and i can only see miniscule differences that can barely be picked out by the naked eye. Other than those, if I were you, I'd contact LEGO and ask for them to make a set out of it.
you are an amazing builder but let me tell you this the reason i rated your gun a 4 i love it is because the safety switch and semi fully auto switch is unrealistic and it doesnt shoot .but honestly ive never seen abetter looking gun than that and its life size too but because your gun is big it would be easier to fit the shooting part inside and if you really want the number 1 gun in the world search up thomas cooper mp5 instructions.trust me man it will change your future.anyways that was my lecture great look and beutiful scale and i love the way you can take off the parts.

Very good work, can you please send me the instructions?
I love the g 36 and this is the best Lego creation of this weapon i ever saw!!VERY GOOD DONE!!
But you have make one mistake, you have wrote "kurz" wrong:)(you have wrote it so:kruz, but thats not important, because you are not German^^)
P.S. Iam german^^and i have shoot the real gun....in my dreamsXD
this is amazing! sorry i havent been on in a while i have had things to do. but sure enough i have still been making guns! i have 2 on my page (no photos yet) and 1 still not on my page. well cya later
nice, though the grip is mainly on the mag, also, the grip could be improved with the right pieces, very rare slanted bricks, which i only have about 8 pairs of, otherwise, i think the only other thing thatcould be improved is the sights, i think , i dunno if you upgraded them, well im takin forever to post my mocs, i made a thompson, garand 2.0, not much better, possibly worse, spas 12, the upgraded mp5, a mp5k, but the folding stock isn't included, the hinge broke:(, me and joem were outside, bam, it broke, a berretta 92fs glock 17, won't post, and mabye somethin else i forgot, anyway nice job, oh and kudos on your 2nd place coup, oh yeah, and i made a copy of your p90
