    image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg Hello there I've been on holiday this week so started to make something unusual the Russian PP-90 sub machine gun,
    It was made in the early 80s and I think it's a copy of an ares f m g (folding machine gun) but don't quote me on this I'm not a weapon expert,there's not many pics on google just about 10 which makes it hard to figure out the size and internal folding mech .
    if anyone has held or fired one or has pics of the internals this would be great.many thanks reef.

    I can't offer any ref photos I'm afraid but your build looks great!

    Would love to see some build photos.

    I did some more work on this build,the flip up sights and the cocking handle/ bolt but man it's hard when you have nothing to work with.
    just the magazine and fire selector to finish.

    Thanks for the link that little animation is cool,the whole thing is made from styrene and leftover plastic I had lying around,and the main hinge ia a bolt from a scooter wheel it fits perfectly.
    i used small aluminium rivets the make it all hinge and fold ,just a few bits to sort out and then strip it for paint ,
