Specifically an aircraft version like this: Original German WWI Maxim LMG 08/15 Aircraft Display Machine Gun

I have some drawings I got from the Smithsonian National Archives years ago. The drawings are scaled 1:1, but there are no dimensions shown. There has been some paper stretching over the years and some dimensions are not clear. I'm building a replica of the front portion and need some help with a few dimensions.

I have a friend with one, what do you want to know and I might be able to get the info for you.

I've been working on making a CAD model of the gun. I need confirmation for several dimensions that seem close. Having someone that has one that I can exchange emails with would be a big help.

There is an MG08 group on facebook. I think someone may have asked a similar question recently on that group.

My WW1 unit has a couple personally owned MG08/15s.
