BadKarma was working on a johnsons LMG and rifle just before he lost his internet. But we can't have too many options to choose from.

This is a toy company's site, but their rendition of the Johnson's LMG is pretty good

there are links to differfent views of the gun, and it will give you a better view than any other pictures I could find. I think they did a good job of doing the gun.

I think maybe FG42 animations would do?

you can use the animations I made for BadKarma's LMG if you like.

They are from the FG42 I think (what ever bones BadKarma modeled over), but redone by me to match the bipod position of the Johnson's

Also the bipod bones were off a little so I needed to reallign them to match the model

The only real problem with this model was that most of the dimensions where wrong (no offence guys).
So I sorted them out and changed a bit here and there then put a skin on it just to see what it would look like andů..
Just needs a sling and someone good to skin it, some new animations and it would be a great addition to the dod community!!!!!!:dog:

(I make this assumption bassed on the fact that one of those shots had the black-grid UV-map-meshes on it, and the animation had him holding the foregrip and not the bipod)

It has sense gotten "new animations" and we have asked a few people to skin it, and one person volentereed but I never got a reply.

It was finished all but the skin, so if you want to skin it go ahead, please, it will be a happy day for a few players.

Try this LMG, see if it is better (http://files.dodnetwork.com/download.php?userid=37&imagel=johnsonLMG_sep26.zip)

To be honest, the skin and model doesn't look to sharp on a low resolution picture.

M8 i could kiss you!! :D

i have spent so much time on the bipod animation and got nowhere,now i can skin it for real thanks dood,i still feel that some of the dimentions are out and the bipod rail is wrong,but i am only going on the few pics of this weapon that i can find!
If you have no objections i will sort the things out that i feel isnt right (some genral dimentions the barrel thickness,cooler,bipod rail and that bar ladder sight!).
I f you have any pics other than those from the toy web page that would help heaps.

this is still a work in progress and most likely to change compleatly,but thanks to BillyNair it should actually get released,it still has so very minor animation probs because i have change parts of the weapon,Billy check your pms m8!!:dog:

badKarma has all the pictures for it, I just found that one toy picture, but it is a lot more accurate than just a random weapon enthousiest, those kinds of toy companies go through a lot of research to get them looking authentic, but yeah a REAL johnson would be better.

(don't tell Karma, but I thought the barrel looked too skinny as well, I don't loke the bloated look of FOV, but sometimes a little more girth is a good thing)

so yeah, knock yourself out, and when you are done send it to me to get animated (also, I see your holes are #0000FF, if you click the transparent box in JEDs it will show through)
