Default WW1 Guns

I wanted an easy way to make guns for my WW1 airplanes. I did not like just making a round cylinder and painting it. By searching the net I found paper models of guns. I used pictures of guns I wanted and made paper to glue onto foam shapes. I made pdf files and attached them here for anyone to use. I also have the files in BMP I can email to anyone that wants them.
If you have an easy way to make a gun please share it here.

The file for the Hotchkiss gun is too large to upload. If you would like to have it send me your email address.

Here's a web site totally devoted to the Vickers machine gun:
http://www.vickersmachinegun.org.uk/

I haven't explored too much, but there are copies of period manuals with pictures of the real thing...even individual parts! Just the thing for anyone wanting to build that super detailed Vickers.
