Jules' SVD Dragunov 1:1 scale

Well i finished it (skipped the bipod as that would have made it awkward to hang on the wall and I havent seen many equipped with one anyway). Of course there was a lot of improvised internal reinforcement in the form of laminations of 1mm card to almost all internal flat surfaces. One tip to anyone who builds this I found i had to build a rigid box structure inside the metal piece at the rear of the forend otherwise the whole forend/barrel assemble was quite wobbly where it joined the reciever, also unless Jules has fixed it by now the flat underpiece of the safety lever is upside down, I had to do the folds backwards and color it with a sharpie. Was an enjoyable build altogether though and I'm greatly pleased with the result (Ive always thought this was one of the meanest looking rifles out there). Anyway on with the pics.

Whoa, nice one. The level of craftmanship is excellent. Is that a STG-44 I see in the background? Where did you buy one? Will be very much interested in acquiring one

Yes Thats a Stg/MP44 It was available very briefly years back as a free model then the author took it commercial, I have tried to track down for you where he is selling it at the moment without success, he seems to change webservers maddeningly often, He also has a PPSH model If i recall correctly.

Sidewinder, excellent work!
What is the origin of this kit? and are you a S.T.A.L.K.E.R. fan by any chance?

Happy modelling and thanks for sharing

Bernie
