Generally, try the home page of whatever military you're looking for/uses the bit of kit you're making. Or the home page of the weapon manufacturer. Colt for the M16 and so on.

EDIT: And [R-MOD]Bob_Marley for weapon pictures.

Default [Resource] Modeling references

A few of the good old reference sites have died lately, but as I was searching for reference photos for a new weapon project I discovered an awesome site. Well 2 in fact.

This first one is nice high res close up shots of pretty much all details on a large selection of weapons. It seems that the site is more or less dedicated to weapons that has gone out of service.

Deactivated guns | world war 2 guns

Also I bumped into this here site:

B&T Technology GmbH - Montage Heckler Koch Sig Sauer IGB Glock Bruegger Thomet Brügger Schalldämpfer Schalldaempfer ABC NBC Bruhn Newtech Swissarms Transarms Leader Frankonia RWS Sellier Bellot Wechsellauf Wechsellaeufe Wechselläufe Munition Gewehr P

It has lots and lots of montages and equipment attachment stuff.. That way we can model the attachments much more accuratly instead of having to guesstimate all that much

I had a lot of good links on my old hdd before it died, sadly I cant post them now.

Although there are a few classics here mainly for vehicle blueprints:

The Blueprints - Reference Image Database - 24000+ blueprints online

and

www.suurland.com

It would be cool if we could make sort of an archive for modeling references here. If I get a lot of links I'll change this first post to a structured listing of links instead.
