Here are some quick pictures of my three FG42s.

My two Shoei model guns (E-type and G-type), with my original Krieghoff 1944 G-type.
My Shoei G-type was refinished in a gray color, I did not do this, but quite like it.

I do also own a Malaysian plastic replica of the G-type, which is very good, although, it will not hold up in a comparison photo like these.

I thought collectors might enjoy seeing the replicas alongside an original.

Thank you for taking these photos!

At the first look, except for wear&tear, there is few noticeable (for me) differences between the models and your original. The measurements and photos(?) taken in Belgium must have been very good.

Do you perceive the differences when seeing these in reality?

Obviously the Shoei is a cast pot-metal replica of a stamped steel rifle, so when you hold it in your hand the original is incomparable.

But, having said that, the similarities are incredible and it really is a magnificent replica.

The design errors are minimal, and mainly around the cast "faking" of the stamped metal elements on the original.
