Dimensions of Model 1883 Gatling Gun
Posted by Mike Kozlowski on 7/19/2009, 6:19 pm
....I recently acquired a plastic model of a Gatling Gun made by Life-Like Models. L-L was never known for its accuracy, but it looks like they actually spent some time on this one. The kit has features of several different models of Gatling, but it seems to be closest to the Model 1883 with the enclosed muzzles. It should be easy enough to refit this kit into a proper and presentable M1883, but I'm stumped as to what the kit's scale is. There's no scale on the box or instructions, and it will be a lot easier to do the conversion work if I know what I'm dealing with. What I'd like to do then is try and get the dimensions of the actual M1883 gun itself - once I've got that, I can figure out the scale and dimensions of everything else.
Thanks VERY Much In Advance,
