It is almost 2 months ago that I started this model.
I thought that it would take 3 or 4 days!
Anyway, here it is.
It will look interesting on the mantelpiece.
Note the hinge and square bolts and keys on the trunnion straps.
A good view of the elevating apparatus, the quoin.
A trunnion, trunnion band, trunnion bolts and key.
Powder pan and touch hole.
It goes on display at the Geelong Wooden Boats Show next weekend.
Exquisite! Are you going to make some cannonballs and try it out?
Not really feasible in Oz, due to our strict firearms laws. But thanks for the compliment. John.
Beautiful work John!!
Thanks Albert. It was a most enjoyable project.
Truly magnificent. I have enjoyed watching your progress.
Thank you.. I have really enjoyed making this one.
A magnificent piece of work. I hope SWMBO will appreciate it on the mantle.
Hmm. Tolerate rather than appreciate I suspect.
