    A perfect modelling day allowed me to finish the twin oblique firing cannon and i am quite pleased with them. i borrowed 3 extra magazines from the dragon kit which are extra. This guy just forgot one of the extra mags. I hope you like them. I still need to make the firing equipment.

    It is a great idea Marco but i would have to send them over and i cannot afford spending another two weeks to make another set or waiting till they make theirs. This thing is going slow enough as it is. i still need to make the firing equipment including the electrical and the compressed air before i can say that they are done. So there is still a way to go. I also need to make the framing behind the pilot's seat. We still have to discuss how i am going to fit these guns behind the pilot's seat. i think that they must have removed the radio operator's seat to fit these monsters.

    BRIAN MAKING RESIN COPIES OF THIS WORK IS NOT THAT DIFFICULT THE ONLY PROBLEM WOULD BE ETCHING SMALL PARTS SUCH AS HANDLES ETC. REST ASSURED YOUR WORK WOULD PUT TO SHAME SOME EXPENSIVE RESIN PARTS FROM CERTAIN SO CALLED PRIME MANUFECTURERES

    Those cannons looks so realistic, can't wait to see them painted! So much more realistic than the Dragon ones.

    Here is this weekend's work. Saturday was divine weather and i manged to put in quite some time there. Sunday so and so but i did manage some work too. Here is the cannon set now complete with the firing equipment.





    Nest up is the roll bar just behind the pilot's seat. This structure was bolted to the cockpit floor and was supposed to bear the entire weight of the aircraft if this had to turn over, thus giving the crew a chance to get out.
