Plans to build a 1:1 scale replica of the Vickers .30 Caliber machine gun and tripod mount.

The plans set includes 12 pages of full sized plans in pdf format on A2 (7 sheets) ,and A3 (5 sheets) of full sized sized parts templates. As the plans are full size, measurements can be taken direct from the drawings – no scaling required – with the measure tool which has been included in the Adobe software.

The Plan Set includes full sized templates in Vector Graphics format (compatible with popular CNC and CAM Software) to avoid marking out errors and make for a simple straight forward build.

Basic metal working and home workshop equipment is required to complete this project and there is some welding to be done on the receiver, Barrel Shroud and Tripod Base if you chose to make the replica from Steel..

The Vickers Illustrated Parts manual in English is included free in the plans package and is an invaluable reference guide for the finer details of the Vickers Machine Gun.

A 52 page photograph album with over 100 build pictures is also included in the plan set.

The plans set also includes a reference photograph document with 3 view photographs of the receiver.

Printing guide and Unit Conversion guide is also included in the plan set.
