Gidday Dave, long time no hear from. 🙂 I've been wondering how this is going. Good to see you back. I haven't seen that Lewis gun mounting before. Regards, Jeff.

Hi Jeff, have to admit getting sidetracked by other modelling genres!

If you look at the picture below, you can see that there was another mounted on the starboard side of the bridge, with an extension plate added to mount it.

 

HMS Heliotrope, a Flower Class corvette built by John Crown and Sons in 1940.

 

All of these images are taken from the Sunderland Museum Flikr site (well worth a visit Interesting that the individual plating is not easy to see, even in close-up, but there appears to be a reinforcing strip at each deck level. 

Cheers, Dave

L'arsenal do 4 Lewis guns in 1/144 for about 6 euros. Don't know about postage though.

Thanks for that. Ordered, but postage was 12 euros! Still cheaper than Shapeways!
