I'd like to make a pair of these in the twin Lewis gun configuration as AA defence or if Italeri every do their British MTB/MGB, they could prove vey useful, apart from the other obvious uses.

Useful for Early Pacific war also. Besides the Japanese made version (Type 92) the 4th Marines had Lewis guns on Bataan & Corregidor

Also with the forth coming release by Italeri of the Vosper MTB, twin Lewis guns feature on the boat so these may prove very handy indeed.
