MGZ34 - Looking for some parts

Postby HeroX » Sun Apr 15, 2012 6:54 am

I bought this MGZ34. It is a restored MGZ - at any rate, some parts of it, i know. So, some parts are missing. Do you know, where i can buy the missing parts? I'm already satisfied with good barn or ground finds (the german word is Bodenfunde), which i can restore.
The MGZ must not work, it reaches the optical completeness on the Tripod.
Here are some pics of it.
Regards, Thomas

Now, as a replasement until I find original parts for the MGZ, I will reconstruct the missing components. Of course, with no function, but only to complete.
Now, the beginning.....

Wow, Good Work. Keep track of what you are doing as someone might be interested in having you make a few more parts for that. Great job so far. Please keep sharing the pics.

I made a technical drwanig from this parts. So, if someone need it - i can send it.
But remember, the parts are without function - only for looking complete.

Hoping that you come up with something nice for the rubber eye piece as I'm sure that there are several of us that need one.
WOW what a great job of redoing things. Looks great. If you are only going to be using it for a display then it's great.
