    You're missing the M57 Recoilless Rifle. I don't know if that's the proper spelling though.

    I am aiming at the light weapon which one man can carry right now, all the crew service weapons will come a little later.

    Sorry about that!

    Anyone have a good usable picture of a China built ZB-26?

    What did the Brazilian military use back in those days?

    BTW, if anyone know what weapon other countries using back then, please send in the list. I am doing all the small arms manufactured during that period, not limited to the ones actually fought the war.

    Maybe I missed it, but I don't see the Winchester model 12.

    [FONT=&quot]Still can't find any Chinese ZB26, but I do find out there are quite a large quantity of 7.92mm Bren Guns made by John Inglis Ltd. in Canada for the Chinese National Army. Is that what we are talking about here?[/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]

    luka: quick question; the M18 57mm Recoilless Rifle & Ammo as per your web page. Are they of the same scale? Reason I ask is that I have an M18 but no ammo and wish to make a display round of ammo and your site is the first I've seen with gun & ammo side by side.

    The Brazilians in WWII were armed in Theatre by the US i.e in the early years of the war their arms were German, and when the FEB went to europe they were to be armed and supplied via us sources. Unless someone comes up with a more definitive answer, I can check with the MA at the Brazilian Embassy here and see if he can help(will have to be next week though)

    I cut the M18 and the ammo out of seperate photos, but judging from the size of the warhead and the barrel thickness, I will like to think they are the same scale. Good luck with your project!

    I supposed you didn't check out his site did you? He was asking what to add and your list has already been included. Nice try though.
