Do you mean the cupola mounted MG34?
Steve Winstone used to do the front part of the barrel only.

In Austria I know someone build muzzle flash for gattling in Heli. Unfortunatly hav'nt found his page yet.
This is not a MG34 but I think a good solution for muzzle flash.

It's probably not what you're looking for but I drilled a tiny (really tiny) hole through the barrel of a 1/16 MG 34 and wired in a micro
led buried in the flash hider. This was for a top mounted MG on a StuG III. The hair like wires are easy to conceal.

It's under the control of an MFC system.

MG simulation

If a led can fit in one that tiny a 1/6 scale MG would be a piece of pie...

Just a hint: the Beier sound module allowes synchronizing MG flash LED and sound.

Another solution is a real MG, firing 6 mm blank cartridges out of a rotating cylinder, even with general permission; I mean.
