How To Attach Machine Gun Balsa USA Sopwith Pup?
I'm building a 1/6 scale Balsa USA Sopwith Pup. I have the Williams Brothers 1/6 scale Vickers gun. The instructions don't indicate how to "mount" or attach the machine gun to the fuselage. Any ideas will help me. Thanks!

Duck Tape..... Sorry, couldn't help my self
If you find a photo of the plane you are modeling, fabricate up a mount to match or at least get close to the real deal. I'm guessing these guns were used on many aircraft and other vehicles and each mount was specific to the type of machine it was mounted to. No need to duplicate exactly, unless you want to, just get close.

Some great pics here of the Pup:
Not much to it; looks like you could just glue the machine gun to the turtledeck any old way-- perhaps with dowel posts.

I made up a couple of Brass clevises which I attached to the Fuse forward of the cockpit with screws and used 2mm screws through the lugs on he bottom of the gun body to attach the gun to the clevises.
It's not in one piece at the moment, so I can't take photos for you, but when I can I will put it all back together and post some photos.
