    Coming soon - for boys and girls of all ages!

    It took quite a bit of fine-tuning but here it is!announce1



    The scale is about 1/48 which makes for a massive cannon if it were life-size.

    The keep I kept rather small as I wanted everything to have a minimal footprint.

    For any critics, please bear in mind this is a fantasy keep/cannon...:rolleyes:

    I will be writing the instructions and "history" of the cannon over the long weekend and hopefully my webdesigner can have it uploaded by next week.
    The readily available source of firing power will be kept a state secret until the files are linked to my website...

    P.s. Russell and Chris - a big dual congrats on your promotions!:thumb:

    Have a great long weekend everyone!

    I was thinking send it to the grandkids in San Antonio and Sacramento (I'm on the Gulf Coast hee hee!). Don't think it'll shoot quite that far.

    my small catapult used to annoy the cat, was somehow destroyed while I slept one night, the claw marks tended to prove who but the cat denied any invovement.
