If you have 3D printer that definitely saving lots of time to making 1/6 small arms like what I did, but I always enjoy the handcraft than machine cause I don't have machine to help.
The basic materiel are TAMIYA 1.2 mm styrene sheet + super glue + round styrene rod + metal sheet + nail .

Heya, Plasticboy!

That is some DARN fine work... and I love seeing the "in progress" shots!

Looking forward to seeing the finished piece.

Wow.

In one of my books or the web, I recall a pic of a Legionnaire (because he was wearing a képi) in French Indochina carrying one of these in 1949, and also French infantrymen (can't remember if they were Legionnaires) sometime during the French Indochina War (don't know what year).

And apparently, some (not sure how much) of the 70,000 Indochinese colonial troops sent to the Somme and Picardy (Belgium) to fight for the French in World War I were armed with these lighter-weight Berthier carbines.

Would make for some interesting bashes :)
