The same story of the first one except The Big Gun 2 is 70 cm long instead of 40 cm. I enlarged the plan manually by using squares method from 1 square cm to 1.5 that I learnt in the school more than 50 years ago. I had to make the second one because the first one was sold as soon as I finished it.

That’s fantastic, Sam. See? You were paying attention in school. I hope some of your teachers pick up on this, so you can rub their noses in it.

That is darn beautiful Sam and great to hear you still used your lessons from school. You have put a lot of great work into the gun and deserve to have that proud look on your face. Well done and thanks for showing.

Fantastic looking gun Sam. Most realistic. Will you be making the canon balls to make it operational?

Beautiful gun. It looks very authentic with all it’s details. I like that old looking finish and colour.

Well better get started building a third one. Because if you offer this one for sale, it’ll be gone like a flash of gunpowder !

That is one way cool big gun!
The canon barrel is really nice work but your wheel work got my attention, really sets off the project.

Canon balls might be a problem for some but,
I just went and looked at your other posts so I can see that some fancy canon balls wouldn’t be a problem for you. lol

Wow, that’s definitely a BIG gun. I agree about starting another one as someone is bound to want to buy this one from you as well. Well done!
