Denix has released the MG34, and this is an excellent news for the Star Wars fans too as it is the base for the Sandtrooper/Sandtrooper DLT-19 rifle.

I have one on pre-order and was thinking about the few greeblies needed to make the MG 34 a good DLT-19. First we have the t-tracks which can be bought from wannawanga. But we also need the disc and belt feeder box, does anyone make them:

Looks very nice.

Looking forward to hearing your review when you get one in hand. 

 

Hope they ship to Japan.

Thank you. It will most likely arrive later this month, or early February. In Japan, maybe you will find a local distributor for it, would help a lot with customs and everything else. I asked the local distributor if they bring this to my country and they agreed for a pre-order, so I was in, and the good thing is the price is even lower than the MSRP on Denix site. :)

I just received a message from Denix, with an image showing possible items to be made by them in the future. And there is ... a Sterling (and a few other interesting things ;)). It is a C1 Sterling though, so I wrote them a long message explaining the differences between Mk4 L2A3 and C1, both from military point of view, as well as Star Wars point of view, and I attached a few representative images for them to understand better. And in the end I told them they should make both the Mk and C1, because Star Wars fans as well as military and gun replica collectors and enthusiasts will buy both versions.

Do you have access to sheet aluminum and tin snips?

If so, I can send you exact measurements of my 3D props blaster and you can cut your own.

Then it is easy to cut, fold, paint, ang crazy glue it to the blaster.

Thanks, not sure if I have access to aluminum, but if not too much trouble, you can post the details here, for members who have access to make their own.

You should be able to find sheet aluminum in a well stocked craft / model making store. Or even large home improvement stores.

Denix MG34 also known as the base for the Stormtrooper/Sandtrooper DLT-19 rifle (and a couple others) arrived. One solid metal piece of 120 cm and 8 kg. A big heavy monster, which is pretty accurate, even barebones as this, but I still intend to add a couple greeblies to make is more starwarsy.

T-tracks have been cut and tapered at the ends. Need to make V notches for the wire. The glue them with E-6000 as this glue is elastic and will not affect the paint of the MG34 if I ever want to turn it back as WW2 weapon replica (highly unlikely though).

Real steel?

He means actual firearms. But forgets that the US is not alone in this world.

He should have at least posted some pics. I have a similar E-11, and European demilling genrally means fewer cut parts and also more mobile parts than US. Anyway, this topic is about the Denix MG34. And for people who cannot use real weapons as base for their Star Wats blasters, this Denix replica is fantastic.

Indeed, various regional laws make it a mess. I could own a full auto AR-15 lower (which would be a machine gun in the US) without issues, but I can't own a barrel which is unregulated in the US but a firearm here.

The display for the Denix DLT-19 Stormtrooper rifle is ready. Considering the full metal MG34 from Denix has about 8 kg, the support had to be very solid to hold this heavy piece. I'll still upgrade the DLT-19 with various parts and greeblies in the future, but glad the display is finished:

If you can’t find sheet metal for the side box and aren’t picky about being tru to the movies, you can use good plastic sheets available at model stores. Maybe even clear acrylic sheets available at home improvement stores.

 

I just finished my DLT and will be posting pics and video soon.

 

Love the display mount

Thanks. There is a friend of mine who might make both the disc and the box, as he has a metal shop.
