Lewis Gun

Our 3D printed machine guns make a superb scale accessory for RC model WWI fighter aircraft. The models come as kits that are easily assembled and painted to give your model the armament that is such a prominent feature of these aircraft. The kits come to you straight from the printer so may need a little work to remove any swarf before assembly and finishing. Fine detail such as sights can be added if required. They are available in 1:4, 1:5 and 1:6 scale. Please note that the guns are sold singly, but some model plans require them to be fitted in pairs.

Lewis Gun - Scale 1:6
The famous Lewis Gun was the first machine gun to be fired from an aeroplane. Easily recognised by its distinctive pan magazine, it was reliable and lightweight, and was fitted to many British and French fighter aircraft including this RAF SE.5A. It could not be synchronised to fire forwards through the propeller arc, so was often mounted on top of the upper wing to fire over it, or was on a swivel mount and fired by a gunner.
