Vickers Machine Gun

Reference is primarily the Williams Brothers kit, photos from the Memorial Flight web site and a lot of stuff that various people e-mailed me in reponse to all my whining over not having enough reference for this gun.
But, despite all the help, I still had to do a considerable amount of guessing, particularly on the synch device and gunsight.

These images show the Vickers configured with the Alkan-Hamy synchronisation gear which was, I believe, commonly used on French nieuport 17s. The loading handle is the Hyland type A . I'm not sure if that is appropriate for this application. But I had a real blueprint for it.
