A very detailed entry! One of my favorites :pir-wink: The cannon on the chains is a nice touch including the roof.

Looking good exotrator.

The roof technic is great and looks really well on your building.

In a small room everything you need to make a cannon, what more do you want?

Keep it up. :thumbup:

Great entry. As already said, the roof in combination with the color of the rest of the building in really nice. I also like the detailed interior you made and the little canon design.

Awesome!

While I had seen this roof technique before, that orange (with the occasional brown) really gave it a realistic terracotta roof tile look.

I have to say this is one of my favorite entries as well! Great work! :pir-classic:

That looks great Exotrator! That roof technique is awesome.

The whole building is nicely done, a nice interior and exterior.

Very good job! :thumbup:

Truly a beauty of a MOC, Mate! I love all the detail you packed in, and the roofs are beautiful, truly a wonderful technique. Nicely done, and keep bricking :thumbup:

It's so small, it would take years if the navy orders all the guns for a ship of the line :pir_laugh2: But ofcourse you're just following the rules.

And you did a great job on that! The roof is very nice (I like the colour!) and so is the hanging cannon.

For the rest it has some fine details and other small objects.

Good entry :thumbup:

I think the guy's hat looks alright, though he doesn't exactly seem like a captain :pir-hmpf_bad:

The barrel on the roof is supposed to be a chimney

Thankyou for your kind words everyone! I'm flattered to have it blogged. :pir-blush:

Ratshot,

Well, I think it would probably look better on a larger building, and covering more area. I can understand if you run out of cylinders, it takes quite a few. I'd also try to use less supports (the 1x6 plates in your pic), because they tend to break up the flow and overall look of the roof.

To clear things up a bit, the man in the red with the parcel was intended as the merchant buyer, and the other as the foundry owner. But it doesn't really matter. :pir-classic:

And, as the_green_avenger kindly pointed out, the grey barrel was supposed to the chimney stack, coming up from the oven.

Also, if anyone is wondering about the cannon design, I posted it here. Here's an exploded shot to give you an idea of how it's built. :cannon:

I like it: it has good interiors and it looks tender even if it's a weapon factory :pir-sweet:

Good work!

:pir_yoda:

I agree, :pir-laugh: but it really dosen`t look like a chimney :pir-hmpf_bad:

Edit--- the only reason i say this is because the gray of the barrel seems to stick out and not look like a chimney.

I think it certainly does like a chimney! :pir_laugh2:

Though, it would be more 'chimney-like' if there was a little bit of smoke in some way.

Still a nice way to create a chimney in my opinion, it goes well with the rest.

True, it does look a little bare.
