Cannon / Gun Carraige Production Line

As much as have tried to avoid it, I’m having to make a Cannon Production Line.

Each Cannon Carraige takes me around 15-20 minutes to make.

Parts lined up… Ready to assemble.

After making about eight or nine of them are so, I found out that I am not making the front part correctly. Not that anybody would ever notice… but I would notice so I corrected it and I would just have to live with the ones that I have made a mistake on.

The proper way it’s supposed to be put together.

I was putting the Buffer on the front on a bit too low I found

Only 9 more to go…

First I attach both Cheeks to the Transom. Then I attach the Bed to the Rear Axle and attach it to the front Axle. Then the Wheels come next.

Here I’m demonstrating how to make these Gun Carraiges


I have to put together at least 1 Cannon in order to make sure about how high to go with the Gun Ports.

My first effort

These Cannons are so tiny that it’s pretty intricate work in order to put them together. In order to avoid tedium… I’ll probably put together a Cannon or 2 per day while I’m working on the Planking.
