Maschinengewehr 08

  • move
Hans visited the Waffen museum in the City of Suhl in Thuringia last weekend. One of the most prominent exhibition Items was a Maschinengewehr 08 and Hans hoped images of this weapons system would be of interest and help to anyone looking to tackle the Meng Model A7V.

Hallo Hans, Your walkaround for the 08 maxim is very interesting. I have a question.Would the Turkish army at Gallipoli used a metal box for ammunition or a wooden crate.It is an obscure question ,but I plan to build a maxim 08 in 1/24 with a small crew. Any advice would be grateful.'regards Andy Acmodels

Great pictures, thank you! I never realized it was a copper color, I thought they were black.

Normally, the water jacket was painted, either black or green (like below). This one has either had the paint worn off, or (more likely) was restored and not repainted correctly. Museum peices are often restored incorrectly and not always the best referances.
